The Cavern Club Live Lounge

An informal event and a chance to meet David Bowie and John Lennon guitarist, Earl Slick. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Earl will be discussing his work and some of those famous collaborations.

Earl was last at The Cavern Club in 2015 as part of our International Beatleweek festival and we are delighted to welcome him back.

Earl is long time David Bowie guitarist starting with the 1974 Diamond Dogs tour, David live Young Americans, Station to Station, Serious Moonlight, Dancing In The Streets, with Bowie and Jagger version, Heathan, Reality, The Next Day and more.

Earl has also worked with such greats as Robert Smith, Carl Perkins, Ringo Starr, George Harrison, Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy .

It can be said that one of the high points of his career was working alongside John Lennon on what would become Lennon’s final studio recording, the 1980s chart-topping Double Fantasy. After Lennon’s death the same year, Slick returned to the studio with Yoko Ono, and appeared on what would become her highest-charting solo release, 1981s Season of Glass. Earl’s guitar work would also appear on the posthumously released compilation of Lennon leftovers, 1984s Milk and Honey, as well as CD box sets for both Yoko Ono, Onobox, and John Lennon, 1998s Anthology. Earl teamed up with Bowie again for the release of Heathen in 2002.

Earl made his International Beatleweek debut with his good friends Mark Hudson et al in the star-studded show With A Little Help From My Friends – The Boys Who Knew The Lads in 2015 at The Royal Court Theatre
