In the early 1960s, Ken Brown, a guitarist from Liverpool, was in a band called The Quarrymen with three other no-namers: George Harrison, John Lennon, and Paul McCartney.

Joseph Messerli was a cartoonist who worked on a number of different funnies, including Dennis The Menace, Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Yosemite Sam, Daffy Duck, Woody the Woodpecker, the Flintstones, and the Pink Panther.
