double oops bill harry sent me this in an email.....Although you have an interesting site, unfortunately you've continued to include some of the myths. Stuart Sutcliffe never got involved in a fight outside Litherland Town Hall, despite which Allan Williams might have written. The very first time they appeared at Litherland Town Hall was on their return from Germany in December 1960. Stuart remained in Germany and Chas. Newby played the gig. Then Paul began playing bass. Stu returned for one or two gigs in Liverpool then returned to Hamburg. Millie Sutcliffe and Neilsa Kirchherr both state that Stuar fell down the steps leading to the attic room he stayed in at Astrid's house and began to have headaches after that.
To indicate how these innacuracies are taken up - Philip Norman in 'Shout' imagines that on hearing of Stuart's death, Millie Sutcliffe's mind went back to Litherland Town Hall three years before. Yet they had NEVER appeared at Litherland Town Hall three years before..and she never said that.
It is all false.
