The Word Of Bob

Bob Wooler was the DJ in the Cavern Club and a very well known person on the Beatles scene.

Before his death, a little over a decade ago, he was working on a biography. Eventually this was published, written by the local music historian and author Spencer Leigh. However, at one point Bob handed some type written pages over to another local writer asking him to finish the job. Two of these pages are up for sale in our auction this August.

The two A4 sheets, typed on Bob’s typewriter, recall how the DJ’s drink was spiked with prellies by John and George as well as other comments about John Lennon.
