I collaborated on a book with Pete called 'The Best Years Of The Beatles' and spent a week with him at his home taping his entire life story. The book was published in Britain by Headline, but not published internationally. Pete told me in detail what had happened and he was unaware that the planning to oust him had been going on for some time. I do know that George went to Ringo's house to ask him to join them, but Ringo was in Butlins with Rory Storm & the Hurricanes at the time. I mentioned it in Mersey Beat which is perhaps why Bruno gave him that black eye!
Who was Bruno?
... Who was Bruno?
... Bruno was a Best fan and he hit George in the eye when they appeared at the Cavern...
Bruno Koshmider. He owned the Kaiserkeller in Hamburg where The Beatles played in 1960.
BM, are you sure you are talking about the same Bruno that Bill Harry is? I guess your Hamburg Bruno would have to have been visiting the Cavern to bop George one...?
I don't know for sure, but it's quite possible. Koshmider had been in England before. Didn't he hire Derry & The Seniors?
Yes, and I'd LOVE to see/hear them in action. They looked jamming at the Weymouth social club from the still photo. I suppose we'll never see/hear them. I wonder what Paul thought about them?Mr. Harry, if you're reading this, did you ever get to hear/see them?
Bill's on holiday. But referring to his site (http://www.mersey-beat.net/), the band, under the name of Howie and the Seniors, did record and they even did so before The Beatles made their first record. Bill might be of help here!
Wow, is all I have to say!Well, not really of course, but I remember reading a thread a while back that asked if any other Liverpool groups had recorded before the Beatles, and here is the answer. THANKS, Bobber.I will start a new thread for Mr. Harry's attention to see what he might know about the recording, or even what it might have been like to hear them.Thanks again, Bobber!
