Liverpool, England – ELVIS has entered the building…of the Beatles. A new exhibition opened October 5 at the Beatles Story Museum in Liverpool called Elvis and Us, highlighting the legendary influence that the Beatles and Elvis Presley had on each other. Julia Baird, John Lennon ’s sister and devotee of her brother's history (besides authoring books about him, she’s on the Board of Directors for the Cavern Club and very involved with the Beatles Story exhibits), attended the festivities of opening night on October 4 at the museum with great excitement, and she wrote me to describe the event. Traveling a great distance for this gala night was no issue for her, as she has great memories of dancing to Elvis records with her mum Julia , and her then-young brother John in their living room. Their cat’s name was even Elvis.
Life is what happens when your busy making other plans. John Lennon
