There is very little debate that this relationship was truly one of the greatest gifts to the world of music. Both McCartney and Lennon were powerhouse bards in their prime. This scene perfectly demonstrates the quote Lennon once said, “the boy grew up.” While the quote was a reply at why Lennon abandoned the lyrical pop of the Beatles, the meat and potatoes of his answer directly corresponds to his relationship with McCartney. Childhood friends that, as childhood friends go, drifted as they became their own men. It’s that tissue, that flesh that’s present in this piece. You nail the likeness with a hammer and that’s a distraught nail. Both figures emerge out of the same form. The same shadow. The same roots. Beautiful work.
