Rory Storm And The Hurricanes
3 May 1960 - Tuesday
This is probably the earliest known photo of the band.
It was a few months later that Ritchie became "Ringo Starr".
Before leaving for Butlins in the summer of 1960 the band all
adopted the "stage names" noted below.
In photo left to right:
Johnny Byrne "Johnny Guitar" (rhythm guitar)
Alan Caldwell "Rory Storm" (vocals)
Wally Eymond "Lu Walters" (bass guitar/vocals)
Ritchie Starkey "Ringo Starr" (drums)
Charles O'Brien "Ty O'Brien" (lead guitar)
