I didn't really want to make an issue of it Rog - I used it as an example of the kind of gossip I got use to back in the day
The Cavern was that sort of place then -
It was a non-alcohol venue - all you could get was very cheap Pepsi which we drank by the gallon until the rumour got round that it made you impotent
Sales dropped to next to nothing within weeks and the management had to make a statement from the stage that it was a deliberately started rumour
I would have loved to hear Colyer playing live - I saw most of the others
Humph still did an occasional spot at the Bull in Barnes when we lived in West London
