Yesterday saw the 50th birthday of one of the most influential clubs in the world.
Well, it isn't the original Cavern, but just down the road.
I had family in Liverpool who frequented The Cavern Club pre-Beatles days and spoke of the incredible atmosphere and acts you could see.
Robin has played there on a number of occasions, the first when he was the tender age of 15, in a band called 'Spring'. He felt like he was walking into a hallowed cathedral and was very reverential. Apart from his amp blowing up, and having to borrow one from another band, it was a successful evening.
He performed there a few more times with 'Hooper' and always enjoyed the whole experience.
So Happy Birthday Cavern Club.
'As always, it was sheer pleasure to observe Robin Hill's remarkable fluent technique: everything looks easy when he plays it.' Colin Cooper- Classical Guitar Magazine ----- 'Wonderful for their (Hill & Wiltschinsky) precision, touch and clarity of sound... refined virtuosity, the achievement of a long interpretive process.' Il Giornale D'Italia (Rome) ----- 'I loved your CD and thought your technique and performance were fabulous...' Rick Wakeman
