““We have all been very busy buying up artefacts including original signed contracts by Stevie Wonder and Gene Vincent to name just a couple of the legends that played there.

"But the owners are desperately trying to find any artefacts or photographs of the likes of the Who, The Rolling Stones, Queen, Elton John or Rod Stewart who all played the Club.

"Indeed if anybody has anything featuring famous artistes which are Cavern related we would be grateful to hear from you with a view to loaning, leasing or even selling what you have.”

– Cavern director Bill Heckle

American blues singer Joe Bonamassa will today add his name to the Cavern's Wall of Fame.
