Hardest Working Band in Show Biz

January 19-21, 1961

The Beatles do four gigs over the next three days.  Tonight, a Thursday, at Alexandra Hall, tomorrow back at Lathom Hall and on Saturday at Lathom Hall and the Aintree Institute.  Brian Kelly and the Beatles are obviously made for each other.  And a pattern is emerging here that the Beatles would come to live by until 1965.  Lives of constant touring would be their lot and anyone who looks at it objectively begins to wonder how they did it.  From the outside, it looks like such a lark, but inside the performance pressure cooker that the band was developing into, it was very hard (although rewarding, personally if not financially) work.
