Roger Ferris in Liverpool

supplied by Dominic Ferris

Dominic Ferris… My dad, Roger Ferris, worked on several Beatles recordings at Abbey Road Studios, mainly around the “Let It Be” era in 1970. Last week we were invited to visit the Liverpool Beatles Museum,  where we were met by manager Paul Parry, who gave us a fascinating tour through some detailed Beatles history. We also took a ride on the MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR where we were taken to iconic Beatles locations including Strawberry Field and Penny Lane. And finally, we were able to visit the famous Cavern Club, where the Beatles made their first appearance on 9th Feb 1961. Thank you to Jon Keats for looking after us and for the wonderful insight into the history of the club. A really fabulous couple of days and highly recommended to anyone that appreciates British music history.

Claire Lonsdale… Roger, such a lovely man

Mike Vawdrey… There was a Scottish group of the period known as Johnny Law and the M.I. 5 – don’t know if they were prominent enough to venture this far from their home turf ? ? An alternative possibility could be that they included somebody whose initials were MI …
