    Fantastic.

    3 years before Paul died.

    Fantastic - They got me into rock and roll (and I first heard them in 1972, as a nine year old - robbed my older brother and sisters 45 rpm collections).

    Ah yes, the one with funny looking kid eventually bobbing his head.

    Check out a site called the Savage young Beatles.

    All kinds of pix and clips of their rough and rowdy past.

    They really did pay their dues and had a schedule that would break most young bands.

    Nice find! Always liked Ringo's drumming on this track. Paul's vocals are a little low in the mix, though.

    Just think: in a few more years, they'll be able to afford all the tan pants a man could ever ask for. ;)

    I've got that video favorited and revisit it about once a quarter. A really nice portrait of their insane level of pop appeal without the jet engine decibels of shreiking to detract from the quality of their amazing pre-invasion sound.

    It is interesting that Paul is acting as Musical Director(count offs) and MC at this early stage.

    Too bad Paul and Billy (Faul) Shears couldn't have had a band together. I think they would have been an awesome duo.

    This is about 10 seconds before they ruled the entire world.

    The Cavern, Liverpool, 22 August 1962.

    This was less than a week after Ringo joined; you can hear some guy shout "We want Pete!" at the end of the second take.

    (Note that Lennon's '58 Rickenbacker 325 hadn't been painted black yet, and still had Hofner teacup knobs.)

    The one thing that strikes me is how Paul is pushing his bass to his right. Wonder why that is. Seems like it'd be tougher to play like that, no?

    So cool. I wonder if those people in the front row knew how close they were to The Beatles.
