The Quarry Men perform at the Cavern. This would be the only performance billed as The Quarry Men at the club. It would be a long wait, an amazing three years before the band would turn up again at the Cavern but under their new name as The Beatles.
The Cavern is located in Liverpool 's market district.
The Quarry Men play at the Wilson Hall in Liverpool , whereupon George Harrison decides to join the Quarry Men. George Harrison (recalling those early days): "I was very impressed by John, probably more than Paul, or I showed it more. I suppose I was impressed by all the Art College crowd. John was very sarcastic, always trying to put you down, but I either took no notice or gave him the same back, and it worked."
Julia Lennon, John's mother, is fatally struck down by a car driven by an off-duty drunken police officer named Eric Clague (When the trial ends, the officer was acquitted of the offence). As a result, John becomes more bitter and cynical than ever before about his life.
Eric Clague: "Mrs Lennon just ran straight out in front of me. I just couldn't avoid her. I was not speeding, I swear it. It was just one of those terrible things that happen."
