Thank you for that Rocky. I still cannot get my head around what a dangerous profession being a musician was in those days. Rory was bricked and the band even had a knife pulled on them let alone the Hamburg battering that they and The Beatles received. Did the Beatles ever talk in detail about that assault they all took. I am amazed none needed hospital treatment.
I just remember John talking about the Hamburg scuffle where he said it was better to run and fight another day than to stand there and get beat up. Paul talked about the scuffles at the Grosvenor Ballroom. And whenever you get crowds of kids together there's always going to be scuffles. Still happens today. lol
This is the only video I could find of the Grosvenor Ballroom today and it's pretty funny. Can you believe the Beatles played here 53 years ago on that little stage in the back? lol Things have really changed, especially the music. ha-ha
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
