    Description

    Beatles - Rory Storm and the Hurricanes Business Card (circa Late 1950s-early 1960s). Consists of the band's contact information on the front, while the verso lists a number of the group's accomplishments from 1957-59. In the late 1950s the biggest group on the Liverpool music scene wasn't (yet) the Beatles, it was Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. Led by the tall and handsome Storm, the group was playing professionally by 1957, while the lesser-known Beatles, still called The Quarrymen, were struggling to define themselves. In 1959 the Hurricanes lineup became especially notable when drummer Richie Starkey came on board, and it was during his time with the Hurricanes that he developed his stage persona as Ringo Starr. As the Beatles star rose, Ringo was recruited to replace Pete Best in the summer of 1962, just before the recording of "Love Me Do". Measures 3.75" x 2.5". Excellent condition.
