Default Funny stories, anyone?

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!

Aww, what a shame. He must have been a newbie - or potentially a confused time traveller!

Many Beatles concerts may have been attended by time travelers. I've written a fic about it based on Bradbury's A Sound of Thunder where time travelers paid to go back and hunt dinosaurs.

I got the idea at a sci fi dinner where someone said that Woodstock is mostly time travelers.

It's an interesting concept.

In the original version of Lyon's Legacy, my heroine went back in time (via traveling to an alternate universe) and saw the Beatles at the Cavern.

My novella, Lyon's Legacy, about a scientist traveling back to the TwenCen to visit her fictional rock star ancestor, is now available as an e-book from Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords and in paper from CreateSpace and Amazon.
