True or false? We bust some of Merseyside's most enduring urban myths

@Oyster Black Pearl Did they get all of these right?

 

I want to fist bump your hand

John Lennon and Paul McCartney couldn’t have known the danger in the words they wrote with the Beatles first major hit, “I Want To Hold Your Hand.” 

“And please say to me/ You’ll let me hold your hand.”

In case you haven’t heard, holding and shaking hands can be hazardous to your health.

What then is the alternative to hand shaking — that ancient ritual that can be traced at least to the 5th century BC —  a custom that apparently developed as an expression of peace, showing that the hand held no weapon?

The author goes on to describe fist bumping and trying to fist bump an elderly lady at church.

I did! Although most of them are just conjecture - not too accurate either, everyone knows Paul is dead (man). It's quite a  poorly put together piece, but entertaining enough, thank you.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

My day in Memphis.

First came Sun Studio.

Ringo Starr has been quoted as saying, “If it hadn’t been for what happened at Sun Studio, there wouldn’t have been a Beatles.” (from http://allthingscruise.com/sun.....s-started/)

Here's a picture from the web of Ringo drumming at Sun Studio: http://stratusmediaworks.ecrat.....in-memphis

This is the neon sign you see behind Ringo's head:

Here's a view of the building from around the corner. This view shows the door to the restaurant that was located in the same building as the recording studio.

Carl Perkins also recorded at Sun Studio.

In this recording studio is where the Million Dollar Quartet's impromptu session happened one day. Notice the wavy ceiling. Some of the walls are wavy too. The tiles on the floors and walls are all originals. What an amazing part of history to stand in.

Next we went to the Cotton Exchange Museum. The museum is actually on the old cotton exchange floor.

Paul McCartney's father worked in the cotton trade in Liverpool. It was interesting to see Memphis and Liverpool sitting side-by-side on this board.

In the lobby of the Cotton Exchange museum, I began singing "Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box"

Lastly, we had a very nice, Beatles fan waiter at Silky O'Sullivan's.

The following people thank Ahhh Girl for this post:

Is Brother John in Let 'Em In a nod to John Lennon? A number of sources say it is but others say otherwise. A comment posted at songfact.com says the correct list is: 

Sister Suzie (Linda McCartney), Brother John (John Eastman), also a lead-in to Martin Luther (John Lennon, bandmates used to call him this), Phil & Don (Everly Brothers), Brother Michael (Mike McCartney), Auntie Jin (Paul's aunt), Uncle Ernie (Keith Moon, in The Who's Tommy), Uncle Ian (Auntie Jin's son)

Is that right?

If anyone knows a better place to put this feel free to get it moved, if it breaks a rule take it down, but a few folk might be interested.

Everything Beatles has just upped disc 1 of a bootleg called The Jimmy Nicol Anthology which gathered together all material known to have existed at the time (2009) which featured Jimmy. Might be a cool supplement to The Beatle That Vanished. Tracklisting is here
