Malcolm Evans was working for eleven years as a telecomminications engineer
when the Beatles came and changed his life. He was twenty-seven, and married
with one child. One day in 1962, he came out of work and decided to check
out the Cavern Club. He soon became a bouncer for the Club. He had been bouncing
part-time in 1963, when Brian asked him to give up the Post Office and be
the Beatles' second road manager. He took the job.
Mal's job on the tours, was to drive the van with the equipment to the next theater, set it up, and test it. And when they were done, he was to pack it up carefully, and looked after it until the next show. At the Finsbury Empire in London once Mal lost John's guitar. It was never found.
