    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    You should come to Liverpool where you will meet hundreds of people who are old enough and have seen The Beatles live at the Cavern. And also just as many who AREN'T old enough and HAVE seen them in The Cavern too.

    I can well imagine it! I bet the latter are in the majority. They must have given up the Cavern gigs after they made it in America when I was 13.
    I have been to Eric's and it was shambolic!

    Simple Minds, Birmingham NEC, 1995.

    Too years too late, as it turned out.

    My elder sister saw The Beatles live in Manchester in 1962. Gerry and the Pacemakers were the "support" act!
    I was only 12 but she "forced" me to be the first person in my class to have a Beatle Cut. Then known as a "Julius".
    She also went to The Cavern several times but never saw the Beatles there.

    My first gig would be Family at a Buxton Pop Festival high up in the hills above the town (about 1969). A young not well known group called Wizard were on the bill long before they hit the charts. It rained all day and we all went home soggy and full of mud. Happy days!

    You dirty old man!! ... which gives us another quiz question for our younger viewers only. What famous 1960s and possibly 1970s Sitcom did that line come from?
