Last Saturday, 15th April 23, I had the honour of playing with The Quarrymen at Strawberry Field on their new stage. Great fun!
You can watch it here. Great stories from the guys and enormous fun to play bass with them.

Thanks! What a timely event for me personally as I’m just reading “Pre Fab”, co-written by Colin playing the drum.
It is a great book isn’t it?
Just found this!
I was honoured that day to ‘play’ washboard on Rock Island Line, I am still buzzing from it now, being on stage with The Quarrymen, you can’t top that being a Beatles fan.
Thank you so much for giving me this once in a life time opportunity.
All the best for the future.
I am still buzzing that I was up there playing the gig with them! Great people, and glad your washboard was in tune too 😀 👍 😂
I still can’t believe I am playing with them. I first played washboard back in 2004 with them. Such lovely guys and a great honour. They have always enjoyed giving fans the opportunity to join them, which is such a nice touch. Glad you’ve experienced it and enjoyed it so much. David
