Gerry and the Beatles...

... er, The Beatmakers? Today, in rock history, in 1961: Although neither group has had any hits yet, the Beatles and Gerry & the Pacemakers unite to form a Liverpool supergroup, the Beatmakers, for a one-off show at Litherland Town Hall in England. Now that's a little bit of trivia I never knew - too bad there aren't any recordings that exist, so let's listen to some vintage recordings from both groups and image what could have been. If Gerry wears that Gibson any farther up on his chest, he's gonna gag on it; and notice the lack of audience reaction to Gerry and the boys - scattered applause, indeed! Thanks to for the info, and keep on rockin'!
