Amusing Beatles anecdotes might be worth a thread. I'll start us off!
I live just north of Liverpool and was in the city very recently when this middle aged Chinese tourist guy approached me. He wanted his pic taken just by Matthew Street, home of the rehoused Cavern Club, and I was instructed to get his head and the street sign in the shot if possible. He had loads of Beatles memorabilia in his hands – looked like the local souvenir shops had done very well out of him!
He was very grateful for my photographic effort. Then he asked me did I know if The Beatles would be appearing at the Cavern that night. I explained it was highly unlikely.
He told me he had travelled to Merseyside especially to see them. (I hoped he didn't mean from China!) So when was the last time that they were on, had he just missed it? he persisted.
I explained he'd unfortunately missed it by about 50 years.
He just waved his hand at me and laughed as though I was a big kidder!
I expect he eventually bought a ticket for a Beatles cover band at the Cavern and thought he'd seen the real thing in the end. Well, better than being disappointed I guess! Bless!
