    Oh, those leather pants. What I wouldn’t give to see the young Beatles in the Cavern/Hamburg days…

    Julia, I’m so with you. I’m 100% convinced that I should’ve been born in Liverpool in the 40s … the universe just made a mistake making me born 40 years too late. :/

    Photographic evidence that it wasn’t the lack of ventilation that made The Cavern so hot!

    Chelsea, the closest I came to the Beatles was on the 9th October 1964. I was living with my parents in Bradford when the Beatles (and Mary Wells!) played at the Gaumont Cinema just a couple of miles away. A neighbour of ours worked at the Gaumont and was amazed by the lung-power of all those screaming girls! A couple of years later he gave my mother and I free tickets to see “Help!” at that same cinema.

    One of the overlooked things about the Beatles was the fact that they were the first true guitar band. Everyone else was pretty much a “Lead singer and a so-so backing band” Even George Martin thought about trying to change the format but the Beatles stuck to what they were. Not great musicians individualy but as a group they made each other better and when Paul took over on Bass, their sound became unmatchable. Then you top it all off with those incredible vocals and harmonies. By the end of 1961 they were so much better than anyone else that the people who came to see them must have been floored. I’d give almost anything to go back in time to witness their rise.

    Nick made that quote up. There’s no doubt that Brian found them ‘hot’ but I also like to think that he could already see back then what the rest of the world would see years later, that they had something really special and unique combined with a great talent for performing.

    Chelsea is quite correct. The line is from the Rutles movie taken from an interview with Leggy Mountbatten’s mum (Leggy being the Brian Epstein character and his mom in the role of Queenie Epstein).
