The Senators brick in the Cavern Wall of Fame - Liverpool.
"I loved The Senators, they were a gift from heaven to me. They were an unashamed beat group, with a repertoire nicked from the -'This is Mersey Beat LP'S.'
The big guys like The Beat Boys and Long & The Short were superb, but because they were so popular, the chance to see them became less and less as they played away from local gigs.
Not so The Senators: I could catch them most weekends at local youth clubs. They were all friendly guys, and I ended up playing with three of them in different groups later.
Polished they were not, but they were loud. and heavily rockin' and I was impressed by their sheer energy: Think The Beatles in Hamburg with Stuart Sutcliffe and you have The Senators nailed. I even booked them for a school dance.
I got some early guitar lessons from Jimmy Thurston R-I-P. In fact he showed me my first chords."
