Mate you are just like me, never understood full grown men wearing football shirts, in Liverpool they wear entire bloody kits.
I find it funny that I am from Liverpool and hate football and the Beatles. I have been out with friends and literally walked off and got a cab home due to the dull football conversation. People probably feel the same way when I talk about what I love.
I hate being from Liverpool for one reason. As soon as I meet someone new from out of town the conversation dries up quickly......
"So red or blue?"
"I don't like football"
"So you a Beatles fan then?"
"Bet its great drinking in the Cavern though, the home of the Beatles, the history!"
"Its small, smells of damp and is full of kids snorting cocaine .....so not really. You are more likely to get stabbed than shagged in the Cavern too"
Any out of towners I have to take out always want to go the Cavern. I die inside....
My Liverpool story....
I had not been to Liverpool 5 years ago, been 4 times since. One time was for a friends birthday and she is a big Beatles fan...personally I don;t like them...
Anyway...went to the Cavern and the house band were offering people to to get up and play along with them....put my name down to play guitar but they didn;t know the song I wanted to do. Then then said do you know any Beatles songs. To which I said erm.... no. After much to-ing and fro-ing, ( on stage whilst the crowd was waiting), the only common song we knew was teenage kicks.
Great I thought...song just about to start in front of packed crowd, I turn to the guitarist/singer and say " You play this in C yeah"...he says "yeah and you are singing it right?"....erm, I don't sing.....song starts and I have to sing the damn song as well! So I actually have relatively good memories as I had lots of compliments afterwards...mainly because everyone was fed up of hearing the The Beatles all night!
