Not Queer, Not Jewish

Not Queer, Not Jewish

John Lennon's immortal words to Tony Barrow

Location: 7 Duke Street, W1U 3EE

Description: And that's a quote...

Step back to 1962 - picture a glorious London boozer and then picture a band that shaped music and the way music is constructed.

Yes it was in this very pub - the 'Devonshire Arms' - back in November 1962 that a young and cocky 'John Lennon' muttered his first words to the publicist 'Tony Barrow' who went onto the shape the Beatles career, of course alongside Brian Epstein.

'If you're not queer and you're not Jewish, why are you coming to work with Brian Epstein' is what John said...and the rest, well you know the story. Legends!
