Description

As a teenager Debbie Greenberg was spending far too much time at the Cavern Club in her home town of Liverpool. It was already the most famous music club in the world, where she had been dazzled by the Beatles’ debut performance and had witnessed their rise to stardom for two years before watching the local heroes leave home.

Then in 1966, after the previous owner declared bankruptcy, her father asked her out of the blue if she thought it would be a good idea to take over the club. It was an offer she couldn’t refuse. She’d been a Cavern fanatic since it was a jazz club, hardly missing a lunchtime or evening rock session until its closure a few weeks before – amid mass protests by Liverpool youth.

Now she was suddenly part of a new family business, faced with the task of helping to breathe new life into a dilapidated rock ‘n’ roll shrine and build on the legacy of the legendary Mersey Beat.

This first-hand account of her ten years frequenting and eventually helping to run the original Cavern Club is the authentic inside story of the Beatles launch pad, full of triumphs and failures – and surprise celebrity encounters.

Richly illustrated with dozens of photos, posters and press clips.

    I have recently purchased a book from you, which is titled, CAVERN CLUB. THE INSIDE STORY, by Debbie Greenberg. After reading the book, I feel gripped with amazement, as it is such a fascinating story, and so well documented with the wonderful pictures in it. Clearly, alot of hard work has been put into writing this truly fantastic book, and I realize how lucky people were to visit this magical club, in its day. Any person who likes The Beatles, and Merseybeat, or anyone for that matter, I would thoroughly recommend them to buy this book, and they will get a real insight, as to how things really were then.
