Great holmertz 2018-11-28 7:15

Hello Benny,
Unfortunately The Cavern was closed the Sunday afternoon when I was there in 1964. It was already a legendary place, but the four young men had not yet reached statue status. This is a nice tribute to John Lennon and an attractive photo in mainly red and black.
Regards,
Gert

Default To holmertz: jealous guy

The advantage of being old(er) is that you can make the young(er) jealous of the concerts you've seen.
Or, in this case: of concerts you haven't even seen!.

Same is true for me. Some of my students are dead jealous when I tell them I've seen Nirvana, Jeff Buckley, Amy Winehouse, Stevie Ray Vaughan, whatever....but these just don't hold up against the ones I haven't seen. The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix or the Allman Brothers Band, for example. Now don't remind me again of that Hendrix concert in Stockholm...

Benny

I'm sure I told you about The Cream's first London West End concert? Or their brief follow-up Blind Faith in Gφteborg?

Leonard Cohen has been to my house, visiting friends living on the floor below mine. Unfortunately before I moved in, but still...

Yes, please mention that! That beats anything I have experienced. I arrived a few days late to a pub in Ireland where John Lennon had been while taking a break from work in 1968.
