Striking Resemblance! Rare Selfie Of John Lennon and Paul McCartney's Sons Is Proof That Their Fathers' Famous Friendship Lives On

John Lennon and Paul Mccartney were both members of the English rock band The Beatles along with George Harrison and Ringo Starr. It's been decades since their boy band days and it looks like John and Paul's children are honoring their respective dads in a unique way.

John Lennon and Paul Mccartney's friendship

For many years, John and Paul were very close. Philip Norman, author of Paul McCartney: The Life, once told Closer that long before their fame, the pair were so close that they relied on each other's body heat for warmth during cold days. 

It was icy and winds were gushing in. They would literally lie on top of each other so the one at the bottom would keep warm for a while. They shared body heat, that’s how close they were.

Their friendship faced major challenges when the band broke up and they had only just begun to repair things before John Lennon was killed in 1980.

Paul's tribute

He told CNN:

One of my best friends was killed in gun violence right around here. So it's important to me.
