Paul McCartney Recently Lost the Notebook He and John Lennon Wrote Their Earliest Songs In

from Exclaim

He lost the notebook within the past decade or so. Speaking on the podcast McCartney: A Life in Lyrics (which just launched its second season on iHeartPodcasts), he described how he would skip school to work on music with John Lennon. He would write down their compositions in an exercise book he had taken from school — "a nice little blue book, a hardback," he said.

"The school exercise book, I found it probably about 10, 15 years ago," McCartney explained. "I put it in my bookcase, and I've since lost it. I don't know where it is. I think it might show up somewhere, but it's the first-ever Lennon–McCartney manuscript."
