Stars for the Star

April 13, 1962

The Beatles start their next Hamburg "residency" today.  The conditions of their stay this time are considerably improved.  They are "only" required to play  three or four hours a night on a short seven week stint.  And also on the bill for two of those weeks, one of their rock and roll heroes, Gene Vincent.

I am sure they are in a bit of a haze as one is when in deep shock and mourning, especially at an unexpected death. They are learning how to go on in all weathers.  It is a lesson that will serve them well in coming years.
