Sir Paul McCartney is bidding to save the Liverpool Art College building where his former Beatles bandmate JOHN LENNON studied from being torn down.

Multi-millionaire McCartney, who owns the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) situated next door, will try to stop the landmark college from being demolished or made into appartments.

The Institute's co-founder Mark Featherstone-witty, says, "It would be poetic if LIPA, which is on the site of Paul's old school, and the building that was John's old art college were joined together.

"We are looking to expand, so it has come at a good time for us. I would like to see the buildings preserved for artistic purposes."

A spokesman for local tour company Cavern City Tour's Magical Mystery Bus Trip says, "That building is synonymous with The Beatles. It's where John and (his first wife) Cynthia met and there's a fantastic photo of the two sitting on the steps outside.

"Paul and GEORGE (HARRISON) were at the grammar school next door. They used to jump over the adjoining wall into the art college to visit their mates."

I'm not sure if Paul is doing the right thing. One thing is to try to save John's old school (that I'm agree)and other completely different is to try to join it to his own school right next door (on this I'm not happy). Why am I saying this?...look: history is history and if Paul and his partner are attempting to join together the 2 buildings then they're changing history and that's not valid (like forcing something that never happened, that is telling lies). It seems more like a commercial thing, more like bussiness instead of saving a Beatle remmembrance...probably more details of Paul's proyect are needed to go deeper on my comments, but apparentely seems not good. I better suggest Paul to save the building and leave it appart from his own (this way he save 2 buildings at the same time).
