Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Beatles first appearance at the Cavern.
Sadly, the original site was demolished (or filled in) in 1973 but a replica was built across the street. I visited Liverpool a few years ago and saw a Hungarian Beatles tribute act (called The Premier Beatles) play in the new site. It's an incredible shame that the original is no more but the replica seems to have done a good job of recreating the scene.
The dim lighting allowed me to pretend I was really there during those heady days of the Mersey Beat.

Ebbo getting friendly with John:
It was a great evening.
I will regale you with further Liverpool adventures soon - I'm off to watch a 'documentary' about people who were REALLY there 50 years ago.
