Very nice comments from Ted who has set the record straight, Geoff. The Iron Door Club was a rock and roll venue before the Cavern and many people do not realize this fact. Ted still rocks too! Thanks for bringing our attention to this short clip from you tube.

Geoff - unfortunately, time is running out for all of us – the clock is seemingly ticking faster for some more than others. So, don’t be shy the next time a camera is pointed in your direction or a microphone shoved towards you – like King Size, tell ‘em what it was all about while you can. If there's a trumpet there - blow it.

Peter: Profound words and I quite agree. Go get 'em Geoff.

Geoff; I haven’t seen Dave Williams for decades [identified 20 secs into the video]. We both attended the same Birkenhead school, though, because of a four years age difference, I was just starting as he was finishing. I wouldn’t recognise him now if I fell over him.

This is how I remember Dave Williams 1962-63 …

This video of the Iron Door plaque unveiling filmed and presumably edited by Dave Williams captures the comradery of the musicians who were performing with Merseyside groups of the 50s/60s.
