Blimey, how things change, when I was a kid " many years ago" ( must be a song in there) way before a music or restaurant venue---The Gun was well known as a boxing Gym. Croydon had quite a few decent boxers at that time.

I can't imagine a scenario where I would do this. There was a brief period when I about 13 where I wouldn't even do it by myself, just in case a ghost was watching. To each his own.

Remember reading an account of that story over 20 years ago in Pete Shotton’s book about Lennon (he was his best mate at school).

It stuck with me ever since...maybe that was a wrong choice of words.

Maidstoned - Out of interest.... Do you like the Stones?

Maidstoned Eagle 11-10-2018 03:10 PM

Rolling or Roses?

I thought I'd quote PK, just because.


And I now can't get the image of the Beatles wanking together out of my head and this has no connection to PK.

Anyone know of their mum/dad/grandparents going to see The Beatles when they appeared at the ABC cinema and Fairfield Halls Croydon back in ‘63?

I take no BBSers were there?

No, but I was allowed to go and see A Hard Day's Night at the Odeon in North End with my schoolmates a year or so later. Does that count?

My wife went to see them at The Hollywood Bowl... apparently that was 1964.

She seems to have survived the trauma OK. (Well thinking about it, actually....)

Better than anything The Beatles ever done.

And I've got an older brother and sister who had Beatles wallpaper apparently.

You had to be there I suppose.

I did consider on my route back to San Francisco airport last month, about popping in to Candlestick Park - the scene of their last ever concert; but the baseball stadium was recently raised to the ground. Didnít fancy seeing a bunch of new builds or an industrial estate so didnít bother.

Went there a few years ago for the 49ers last ever game in the stadium - didnít think of the music connection until you mentioned it. It had certainly seen better days and the local area was a bit dodgy. Good game though.

But then I suppose you never recovered from Beethovens death!;)

No,however my Mum and Dad met them all when they were in the film 'Magical Mystery Tour'. It was filmed over a weekend in Kent somewhere I believe.

They used to go to Peggy Spencers dance hall, and that's how they got to be in it - they were dancers who danced down some stairs to the song 'Your mother would know' which was near the end of the film

The film was on tv on Boxing Day (1967?) in black and white, and was panned by critics.

It has since been out in colour on DVD I believe, they are vaguely featured in the 12 inch record sleeve (there is a sleeve version with pictures which my mum has)

My mum has a photo of the 4 of them signed by all four. Must be worth a bit with the provenence of their back story I imagine.

Sorry if I've mentioned this before.

Yes, when i looked up visiting the place on some forum, a few advised it wasnít the safest place for tourists to take a stroll.

I believe McCartney went back and played a concert there before it was knocked down.
