Beatles History Wrong?

(Rock News Desk) An original member of the band which went on to become the Beatles says the date of their first show at the iconic Cavern Club has been recorded wrongly in history books and it's partly his fault.

Banjo player Rod Davis, who was replaced by Paul McCartney soon after the Quarrymen started gigging, agreed with archivists who suggested the group first performed in the LIverpool venue on August 7, 1957.

But he recently realised the date was wrong: the skiffle group had already played the Cavern by then. "No question about it: I played three or four times at the Cavern and is was definitely before August," Davis tells the BBC. "I have my dad's passport which says, 'Entry to Bolougne, July 29, 1957,' so I was definitely not at the Cavern on August 7." more on this story
