Also while we're waiting,,,, (don't know if these are some of your pics Mr M) The Beatles first tour. The one with Tommy Moore. The first pic is what the band looked like for the tour. The second pic is the only know pic of Johnny Gentle with a Beatle in sight.
I wonder how bad and embarrassing it really was?
Friend: My favorite Beatles song is Band On The Run. Me: It's not a Beatles song. Friend: Wot! That guy, that guy, Paul McCartney sings it right? Me: Yes. Friend: Alright! That one is my favorite Beatle song.
Another little story: Johnny Gentle was driving the van to another gig in Scotland and crashed and Tommy lost all his front teeth and was taken to the hospital! Here Lennon, and I think Paul, went to the hospital and dragged poor Tommy out so he could play the drums at the gig that night. lol
Wow, that's a great video Rocky. That re-union was held at the Top Rank, and I was probably there.
Notice how it looks like all those groups, including the Beatles, will be there. Typical AW!
Funny enough, when Alan talks about the council doing more damage than Hitler, one of the thinks they did was demolish the old St Johns area, which had a market and several little pubs. They then built the new shopping centre which was crowned by the Top Rank Suite, which had all the charm of a nuclear bunker. As Neville Smith said "They tore the heart out of Liverpool and stuck it out on the East Lancs Road. Seeing those 70s fashions and hairstyles always makes me wince. Great seeing the inside of the Cavern, too. Really brought back memories.
I like how that poster shows everybody. Then you know the Beatles ain't gonna show. Then the Searchers say they ain't gonna show up cause (whomever) ain't gonna show....pretty soon nobody showed up, except Alan Williams and Bill Harry because of the booze! lol
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
