  1. Rrr Ddd

    🤔😬💥от этого чувака начинался 💥💥💥DeeP PurplE😬😬😬😬💥💥💥💥💥✌️✌️✌️👋

  2. Mihályné Halász

    Nagyon király zenekar volt.

  3. Fe L

    Вот это отожгли парни ))

    Olga Sukhushina

    Это так и было....они из Ливерпуля, как и The Beatles. Выходили их великолепные альбомы.

  4. Clayton Burch

    Chris Curtis was an absolute douche bag. He cared more about his image than the band itself. They went totally downhill when Tony Jackson left.

  5. Андрей Коршунов

    👍👍👍❤

    Olga Sukhushina

    Бит группа The Searchers была также как и The Beatles из Ливерпуля. Они были очень
    успешны и стали мировой знаменитостью в те годы. Я хорошо помню как песню What'd
    I say играли малоизвестные советские бит группы на танцплощадках. Их музыку тогда
    любили.

  6. John Wagner

    Mike Pender's lead guitar playing is as good as George Harrison's (and maybe a bit better, sometimes)

  7. Oswin Towns

    Chris Curtis on top form wow

  8. Ed Berger

    That drummer was a real ass hole!

  9. George Manson

    1:40 those jumps ❤️

    ian bentley

    mike's still going though, i know the other searchers band with john has packed in, and don't blame john.

  16. yellowbelly1949

    Dreadful rubbish!

    Philip Howard

    yellowbelly1949 They couldn’t sing for toffee a music critic once Said that of the Beatles

  17. Craig LW

    Chris Crummy off his tits there. McNally, Pender and Jackson deffo flushed his gear down the bog after this performance.

  18. Tonetwisters

    In the band business, we call these "throw-a-way" songs, "time killers." But I guess they had fun getting the crowd going! Loved this band as much as The Beatles back in '64-'65 ... Great to see them actually live!

  19. Peter Gentsch

    damals wars, echt ne tolle Zeit für Beat Bands. In Berlin spielte in jeder Eckkneipe eine Band, und es wurde getanzt bis zum Umfallen.

    Susan Hickey

    Great group sexy drummer Chris Mike John and tony

  20. steve FromEngland

    The Chris Curtis Band....The lad nicked it

  21. mercy beat

    Chris Curtis - the best singing drummer of all times !

    Philip Howard

    mercy beat He’s just like Ringo Starr who could also sing and play the drums at the same time both were good

  22. john ;zoefie; scholte-albers

    this guy was BLOODY good......r.i.p.

  23. boassinfield3

    I am not too sure the rest of the band were really into the drummers show stealing here, knowing the tension between drummer and bassist. Just a thought.

  24. roxio69

    The Searchers were that unique band that had all players that could sing, and their harmonies were just great. Shame that band had broken up into 2 SEARCHERS bands...the original SEARCHERS were just great. Still get chills when I hear NEEDLES and PINSA

  25. Cliff Yablonski

    Fuck the Stones and the Beatles, The Searchers were the shit.

    mavis wood

    What ever happened to Chris Curtis?

    Sandy Sandy

    That fruit cake kicked !

    LandondeeL

    He left the Searchers in 1966 to attempt a solo career. When that didn't work, he formed another group called Roundabout, but was kicked out just as they were about to hit the big time. The rest of the band changed the name to Deep Purple (yes, them!). Disillusioned by show business, he went up to Liverpool to take a regular job, before dying in 2005.

  26. Connor Patrick Nolan Music

    A great band that is so underrated

  27. William Garrett

    If you will notice the contours on a Fender Stratocaster, you will see it was designed to be played at lower rib level.
    Ray Davie's brother in the Kinks played his Gibson Flying V with his right arm inside the "V".This is really the correct
    method according to the way the electric Guitars were designed in the 1950's. People started hanging their guitars
    really low because once light weight strings began to be used in the late 60's, it supposedly gave them a better angle to
    bend the strings. Nowadays people seem to think the lower you hang your guitar, the cooler you look.

  28. Mihályné Halász

    nagyon szuper zene.

  29. Lola Lo has hecho muy bien, Gf

    Buena version

  30. Lucio Oliveira Gonçalves

    Grande Banda!!! John, Frank,Chris, e Mike Pender. e Liverpol, mesma cidade dos Beatles. Parabéns na estrada até hoje.....

  31. Tom Squeeze

    That was Chris Curtis on the vocal, right?

  32. mr_tulip

    "Pharmaceuticals." :P

  33. ronowen39

    the great tony Jackson  the searchers lost something  when they got rid of tony

    Colin Powell - Entertainer

    Apparently down to Chris Curtis.....saw some vid on YT of Tony taking about it.

  34. Sonny T

    This version by the Searchers is ridiculously awesome!

  35. johnny albers

    this guy knows how to ROCK, dam....

  36. una mckillen

    I have never seen The Searchers like this before (I have seen their present line-up a couple of times recently).    Chris Curtis was talented, there is no doubt.  (It could be John Lennon.  He seemed to have the same off-the-cuff, quirky, Liverpudlian humour too.)  

    I believe later he drove Tony Jackson out of the band  -  a shame really.  

    BlackMonk66

    I think Tony Jackson was the creep in this situation. The story goes that he told their manager that unless he.got paid more than the others, he’d tell the music press that Curtis was gay, which was illegal in England at the time.

  37. Alan Anderson

    This concert also had other bands from Liverpool playing on it including Gerry and the Pacemakers and a group called The Beatles".  Check out the jump at 1:42 don't think other bands did this then also at 2:12 they stop the song because the crash cymbal had been knocked over and the singer riffs as John Lennon comes  to put back the stand back that and you can hear the drummer quip in his scouse accent "Having a good time down there John, you tiny man".  They were friends from cavern times and these boys knew how to work a crowd".  I think this is great -  to the naysayers below - they acknowledge its a Ray Charles song, I think the fact they channel it in their white English boy way to make something new is what the British Invasion was about.  As to the way they hold their guitars it's because  bands then often didn't use straps that all changed by the end of the year.  It was a tradition amongst Liverpool bands for the drummer to sing a song that was a belter with the Beatles it was Ringo singing 'Boys'.  The Searchers: another great but underrated musician's band from the time along with The Zombies and The Pretty Things.

    Fabian Jahn Högler

    +Alan Anderson I totally agree! One note though, it is not John Lennon who puts the stand back up. Chris Curtis talks to John McNally, the rhythm guitarist and creator of The Searchers. It would have been an amazing story if it would have been John Lennon though!!!

    David Coyle

    And, if John Lennon had popped up on that stage any earlier than the Beatles set, the whole show would have been over, because none of those kids would have been paying any more attention to the Searchers or anyone else.

    Mark Anderson

    Fabian Jahn Högler I stand corrected.

  38. mattmannist

    What a crap version of What I Say.....Ray Charles ought to sue them!

    jonny chingas

    +mattmannistYou're right it IS a crap version. Ray is probably rolling i his grave. This really sucks

    dallaskenn

    +mattmannist Jerry Lee Lewis did the best cover of 'What I Say'.

    mattmannist

    Yes dallaskenn...I agree with you! Lewis did a great cover of What I Say...

  39. Mel Stone

    The Searchers always could do a solid rave up when they wanted to.  A very under-rated group.

  40. LandondeeL

    Was the late Chris Curtis a time-traveler? At 2:24, it sounds like he's saying to John McNally, "Having a good time down there, John, you're trying to e-mail?"

    tom caroscio

    I thought the same thing.  Anyway, this is a totally entertaining show. 

    LandondeeL

    @tom caroscio Absolutely.  Chris Curtis was the most underrated genius of the whole British Invasion.  He was way ahead of his time.  He died too soon, as did bass player Tony Jackson.  Both men will never be forgotten.

    David Coyle

    Someone else said he's actually saying "You tiny man." But I always thought he was saying "You trying an E, man?" like McNally was waiting to start playing guitar again during the little interlude. But I don't know if any of the song is in E, LOL.

  41. burman smith

    why did the English gtr guys all hoist their instruments nearly to chin level ?   Gerry Marsden.....

    burman smith

    you're right but I only ever saw one man put his arm through the "V" of the flying v guitar and that was Dave Davies...thanks 

    burman smith

    well said sir !

    burman smith

    @***** true , it does propel the instrument into respectability...1

    Sandy Sandy

    Haaaaaaaaa so silly !!!

  42. LandondeeL

    There will never be another Chris Curtis.

    Sandy Sandy

    Keith moon ?

  43. alonenjersey

    Excellent version! Let's see today's bands come across with so much positive energy.
