It’s funny, the memories that come into your head. I think that was when I was doing ‘Are You Lonesome Tonight?’ In the middle of the record, Elvis delivers this little soliloquy – “They say the world’s a stage…” So I tried this at Litherland. I glanced at the rest of the band and they were peeing themselves. That was the last time I did that number! I think we were advertised in the Liverpool Echo as “Direct from Hamburg!” – so the kids in the audience thought we were Germans. We had our hair forward, our leather jackets on, we looked different… They were quite surprised when we started talking Liverpool English.
