We all (think) we know the true history of The Beatles. In our minds we are both Mark Lewisohn and the Fab Four. However, it turns out that what we've read or heard is a load of PR twaddle, spin-doctored by time and memory-loss.
In turn, I would like us to write the true history of The Fab Four. Chapter by Chapter. Verse by Verse. We will start with the day John met Paul, whenever that was. The writer of that section can then suggest the next topic.
Writer, over to you:

John Lennon , a fresh-faced schoolboy, met Paul McCartney one day, in their first year 8 geography class in their Liverpool school. They both immediately bonded, because neither of them knew anything about African rivers, and neither cared about South American Forests - they discovered they shared one true love: banjos.
What happened after that geography class?

After schooling, our two heroes Jock and Mac get into a skiffle on the banks of the quarry. And what a magical sound it was that came from their banjojos, enough to catch the curveball of attention from another young lad called George Harry Seacombe (later Krishna). George was taking his mop-top Arthur for walkies when he overheard their strains in the distance, a sound that chilled his bones and put Arthur back on his head. He knew at that moment he must join them in melodic harmonium.
What was the song they played that caught our Georgie's attention? And what did he play to impress them?
