    Well the guy in the background certainly isn't window shopping or looking at the cameraman. and his bird is oblivious to him looking.

    They are part of a Liverpool girlie band called The Liver Birds...
    The group was put together by my mate Sam Leach....
    I'd been taking girlie shots for him at a practise session at Crash Studios..
    Sam was The Beatles 1st promoter and the man responsible for putting on The Beatles biggest ever UK gig of over 4,300...
    Operation Big Beat which was at New Brighton Tower Ballroom on November 10th 1961...

    Sam also put on the John Lennon Peace Memorial at The St Georges Hall when Liverpool looked on and did nothing..

    I wonder if your friend was involved with this incident...

    Default 1962 and all that.

    Friends,
    For many years I had a friend that played trumpet with Aker Bilks' band in the Cavern and elsewhere about Liverpool.

    ColinRanger Smith, a qualified electrician, taught himself to read and write music after buying a yukulele( A small guitar with 4 strings?) when a boy. He grew up in Potters Bar and as a lad was some sort of 'sea-scout' and served on the RRS Discovery which was berthed on the Thames at that time, it is now in Dundee.
    [incidently the very first trouble recorded at an outdoor music festival was at a Bilk gig]

    He told me a tale of the birth of the Beatles...[1962-I think]

    Aker Bilks' band often played at the Cavern, Trad Jazz. With the Beatles supporting. In the summer AB's band was booked to play on a 'ferry' that plied from Liverpool to the IOM, for the IOM Jazz Festival. Times were good. The young Colin playing regularly at all the best venues, sports car etc.
    The band was also booked at a large Country House gig inland from Liverpool to be played after the summer 'rush', again with the Beatles in support.
    However, when the time came for that next gig it was they who played support.
    The Beatles had hit the big time.
    The rest is history.

    It's an ill wind... so they say.

    I posted that story on this thread...

    That is the only type of story I would believe Oudeis about The Beatles..
    one told to you by the actual person who witnessed the event.


    I could tell you plenty of stories Ouedis...all true, from people I know that were there and witnessed it all.... from the likes of John Lennons sister Julia who contacted me with certain privileged information I will never repeat..

    not 3rd and 4th hand rubbish taken from some site full of attention seeking cranks or bad Beatles tour guides that know nothing....

    Hows about what happened when Little Richard touched up a Mersey Beat legend in front of John Lennon at The She Club on Victoria St..?

    Or the legendary Beatles show that nearly never came off because one of them was sacked on the spot half an hour before for being blind drunk...?

    Or what Cilla Black did when meeting somebody from 30 years previous who was in the same band as her for several years....

    Got loads of them....that I'll never ever tell as they were told to me in confidence...
    by people that were there that I've become friends with that trust me..

    What makes you think you can rely on eye-witness accounts either? I mean, if you believe Julia... say no more!

    You know when you spend enough time with people that you get to know them..thats how I believe and trust the likes of Bill Harry, Sam Leach and others that were there...do you know Julia ?.. I mean personally...I've got a feeling you commented for me to ask that so you could say yes...believe me, what I was told by Julia is true..and is disgraceful...I can guarantee even you, who I dont know from Adam..would agree.
