Why We Should Thank Arthur Pendleton for “Love Me Do”

Arthur Pendleton was the neighbour of John’s mum, Julia, and lived at 5, Blomfield Road. When John’s Uncle George gave John a harmonica, he needed someone to teach him how to play it. Step in Julia Lennon’s neighbour Arthur who had been playing the harmonica for many years.

Julia would send John to Arthur’s home, just two houses up the street from Julia’s, where he received several harmonica lessons.

With this talent, John used it to great advantage on the Beatles’ early hits, especially their debut single, “Love Me Do”.
