John Lennon on the Skiffle Craze and Forming the Quarry Men

"It was just before the time rock and roll started getting big in Britain. I think I was around 15, so it would be 1955. Everyone was crazy about skiffle, which was a kind of American folk music, and it sort of went like ging ging-e-ging, ging ging-a-ging, using washboards. And all the kids who were 15 and 16 used to have these groups, and so I formed one at school."
