The Beatles with Gene Vincent at the Cavern

It was 50 years ago on this day (1 July 1962) that The Beatles performed together with Gene Vincent in the Cavern in Liverpool.

A famous picture was taken at that concert of John and Paul looking backwards with Gene Vincent. The picture was taken by Mike McCartney.

The Beatles had met Gene Vincent before during their 1961 tour of Hamburg, and they were thrilled to meet up with him again.

There exists a tape of Gene Vincent playing "What I'd Say" together with The Beatles at the Cavern on July 1st 1962. The song apparently has some wicked guitar playing and Pete Best on tom-toms.
