Default Frank Sinatra and "Suicide"

"One day in 1961 the Beatles did the Cavern lunchtime session and afterwards we decided we would have some drinks. We went to the Mandolin, which was an old cinema in Windsor Street, just outside the city centre, run by Harry the Pole. John sat on a settee with a girl in the club, and Paul went over to the upright piano on stage and played a song. When he came across to where I was sitting, he said it was called "Suicide", and I told him that was a rather strange and uncommercial title for a song.
(Note: in Many Years From Now, Paul McCartney recalls how Frank Sinatra asked him for a song and he sent him "Suicide". "He thought it was an almighty p*ss-take", Paul recalls. "I think he sent the demo back")."
The Mandolin was the old cinema in Windsor Street next to Henry Hunt the cabinet makers where Ringo once worked.

Below: Windsor St looking north towards the city centre, in the early 1960s. Behind the white Morris Minor 1000 is Upper Warwick St, which runs across Windsor St. There is a pub on the corner. Next to it was the old cinema, which at one time was the mandolin club, then Henry Hunt was just beyond the Mandolin.
