I remember bunking off school and hitchiking to Liverpool with a couple of mates. I would have been 13. We went on the Ferry across the Mersey, visited the Cavern, and went in the music shops. Like every other 13 year old I wanted to be a Beatle.

Later (age 19) I did even play in the Cavern (the original one before it got moved). That was some experience for a naieve country boy like me! The dirt was just swept into the corners and it was full of some of the wierdest people you could imagine.

Anyway, that’s what the Beatles mean to me. You know the music, the personalities, The Beatles even transcended and defined the culture. As Bob Paisley once said of Liverpool FC ‘it’s not a question of life or death, it’s more important than that’.
