John and Paul write From Me To You

On 28 February 1963, John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote one of their biggest hits "From Me to You".

They were travelling by bus to Shrewsbury during the Helen Shapiro tour, and in the back of the bus they came up with the melody line. Before the day was done they had completed the lyrics as well.

In the evening Helen Shapiro (who had been ill) rejoined the tour and they played at the Granada Cinema in Shrewsbury.
