A look back at Liverpool's vibrant music scene in the 1960s, centred around the rise and fall of the band The Big Three.
How did the Beatles rocket to stardom when their rivals The Big Three vanished from the music scene just as the British Invasion was beginning? Just like the Beatles, The Big Three were part of the exploding music scene in Northern England in the '60s, they spent their early days playing at Liverpool's Cavern Club, and they shared the manager who made the Beatles stars, Brian Epstein. Where they differed, however, was The Big Three's loud, raucous live shows, their penchant for drinking, and their refusal to sell out.
Although they enjoyed a brief period in the spotlight, the band cut ties with Epstein and ended their careers in a legendary fist fight. Now, Calgarian Todd Kipp's documentary SOME OTHER GUYS tells the untold story of the rise and fall The Big Three, proving why they might be Liverpool's best kept secret.
