The Beatles drove north to Liverpool Wednesday morning and arrived just in time for the night-time Cavern Club engagement. The journey was quite eventful. Their van's windscreen had shattered into bits, in the freezing cold. The Assistant road manager at the time, Mal Evans - Neil Aspinall had remained in Liverpool. Not feeling well, he had no choice but to drive on without a screen while the Beatles conserved and remained warm by laying on top of one another in the back.
