The first and only community about the early Beatles in Hamburg and Liverpool!

They played at the Indra Club for the first time on August 17th - then Kaiserkeller, Top Ten and, 1962, at the famous Star Club! Staying in Hamburg shaped their musical style as well as their personal development, it was the time of crucial decisions such as: Pete Best or Ringo Starr? Teddy Boy look or moptops? Bert Kaempfert ("My Bonnie") or Brian Epstein ("Love Me Do")?
