Sixth Generation, the quintet, formed in 1966 as a Niles garage band, will be the only American group performing on the bill in the birthplace of the Beatles, Liverpool’s Cavern Club to celebrate Ringo Starr’s 73rd birthday July 7.
Excerpt: When Sixth Generation reunited in 2010 after a 40-year break, no one expected tours, CDs with original songs, hall of fame status or the boomer anthem “That Was the Time,” with more than 100,000 YouTube views. As Dave Walenga likes to say, “Nothing surprises me. And now this opportunity. We’re not reliving our youth. We’ve never been. This is our first time. We take this in stride.”
