My visit to the Casbah Coffee Club

Last Tuesday I went with my wife and three children to 8 Haymans Green, West Derby in the suburbs of Liverpool and met Rory Best (Pete's younger brother by 4 years) for a personal tour of the Casbah Coffee Club. I say 'personal' because it was literally just us five – wow!

Rory spent 1 hour and 20 minutes with us and was absolutely charming and brilliant fun. There was no rush.  I was allowed to photograph all I wanted (including Rory and me together) plus he took one for me of my wife and I.

The time went by in a flash, but believe me, when we came out and we drove off with Rory standing at the gate waving us goodbye I was totally buzzing like a 14 year old kid at Christmas!!

I'd post some photos but I haven't a clue how to do that. If someone would be so kind and inform me what to do I'll get on to it ASAP.

Hah – it's working!

This is the famous stage George, Paul & John were pictured on with Ken Brown (see picture in my photo).

Cynthia's silhouette of Silver Beatle John.

 

Rory told me this was the spot John & Paul cornered Stu and relentless pressured him into buying a bass guitar with his prize money.

 

The ceiling John painted – this was attempt number three!

 

John carved his name in the wall panelling and got as far as this before Mo caught him. He got a smack around his ear apparently….

 

Paul's paint work………..above the little stage.

Oh wow, I'd heard about some of these (particularly the silhouette) before but had never seen them. Thanks so much for sharing. Great pics! I say this every time, but I *must* go to Liverpool again.

And if anyone else is wondering how to upload pics, here's a guide: http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo…..ng-images/

Joe,

you need to get up there and tell the Best family about this site! I'm sure they'd be impressed.

And here's a little teaser: Rory told me a bit of gossip about Paul (probably very much in the public domain). Want me to spill or will the 'lawyers' be watching!

I don't really want to be sued, but if you could possibly post a completely unrelated story about Mr X I'm sure it would be interesting to hear. a-hard-days-night-george-6

Thanks mjb – my favorite pics are of the stage and the "corner".

One of my wife's goals in life is to visit London. I always tell her I'd love to go as long as we can make the trip up to Liverpool for at least one day.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I wouldn't be interested about hearing something about Paul. Mr X, however…

Well, the Ukraine girls really knock me out  They leave the West behind

Great shots Martin!! Thanks for posting.

 

I tried to PM you to ask you a few questions since Im doing some casbah 3D but the PM didnt go through. Can you email me via my blog?? I need to pick your brain and ask you a few questions about the room itself.

 

Thanks!!

Chris
