Stuart Sutcliffe

Stuart Sutcliffe played in a band
Called the Black Jack, then Quarry Men,
Then Johnny and the Moondogs, and
Stuart was playing the bass when
The foursome wanted a new name.
Stuart came up with word play on
Crickets of Buddy Holly fame.
But soon after, Stuart was gone.
He went to Germany, found love,
Gave up music to study art.
An aneurysm he died of.
Age 22 he did depart.

So Stuart Sutcliffe - who was he?
He made the name 'The Beatles' be.
