April? 1961
The Top Ten Club
136 Reeperbahn
St. Pauli, Hamburg, Germany
Photographer: Jurgen Vollmer

Paul still had his Rosetti 7 (although it's restrung as a six-string guitar)
so these photos must date from early in the Hamburg trip. Paul would
buy his famous Hofner "violin" bass during this stay in Hamburg.

In a 1997 interview, Jurgen Vollmer indicates that this was a staged performance solely for the purpose of the photo session. He also adds
that he took about ten rolls of film. Hmm...where are all the photos?

NOTE: some of the photos of George at the bottom
do not have enlargements.


This is a fake composite photo. It is NOT authentic.
