A leading British archaeologist said that the grotto whose discovery was announced this week in Liverpool was not the sacred cave linked to the legendary founding of the Mersey Sound spearheaded by the Beatles.
The Culture Ministry and experts who presented the find said they were "reasonably certain" that the cavern was nothing more than a public toilet that had somehow become built over and forgotten. The whereabouts of the famous Beatles cavern has led to much speculation, some remember it as being a cellar and others remember it as being in a cave.
Paul McCartney told our roving archaeologist that he just remembered it as "A hole" and the only other remaining Beatle Ring Star said he "cant remember a bloody thing about the sixties".
The team of archaeologists who stumbled on the cave say the hunt to find the lost Cavern Club will go on. "We were obviously disappointed not to have found the legendary Cavern Club but our search will go on".
A spokesman for the Liverpool council said "Finding the lost toilet has had a wonderful spin off, the graffiti on the walls gives us an insight to the world of public toilet users from long ago, we hope to clean it up and open it to the public as an art gallery, everybody will be required to take a piss instead of an entrance fee".
It is hoped Sir Paul McCartney will open the gallery in the spring, "Who knows, Paul may be the first person to piss in the urinal since the sixties" said a delighted aging hippy from Knotty Ash.
