The Cavern had originally been a Jazz venue, but the scene changed with the rise in popularity of skiffle and rock and roll. The Beatles made their first appearance in February 1961.
PAUL: "The Cavern was sweaty, damp, dark, loud and exciting."
GEORGE: "We used to play lunchtime dates. We'd get up and go down to the Cavern and play from noon till about two. It was very casual; we'd have our tea and sandwiches and cigarettes on stage, sing a couple of tunes and tell a few jokes"
They played the Club almost 300 times, their final performance took place during the summer of '63.

“I watched a movie about john's life before the beatles. And i was thinking the whole time "What if he knew he were going to be one of the biggest musicians in the world?"”

“I thought this would be the best article to say this on: RIP John Lennon. 30 years today, if I was alive the world would have ended for me. We miss you!”

“Hi @IracheCorn. You must be talking about the song "Some Other Guy". They also performed this on BBC radio and that is available on the "Live At The BBC" CD. The film of them singing this song at the Cavern Club is available on the "Anthology" DVD too.”
