Jimmy Hart: WWE legend visits The Beatles Story

Jimmy 'The Mouth of the South' Hart visited The Beatles Story this week, the WWE legend was in Liverpool to attend For The Love Of Wrestling taking place at the city’s Exhibition Centre.

Hart is an American professional wrestling manager, executive, composer, and musician currently signed with WWE in a Legends deal. He has managed many professional wrestlers including Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Jerry "The King" Lawler, "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase and many others.

 

Before becoming involved with professional wrestling, the Mississippi-born star was a vocalist with the 60s band The Gentrys, who had a million selling record with their 1965 single 'Keep on Dancing', the song was a top five hit on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Jimmy’s background as a musician led him into composing many theme songs for wrestlers and wrestling events, including entrance music for the likes of Honky Tonk Man, Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake and Hulk Hogan. His most notable composition is perhaps Shawn Michaels’s entrance theme, "Sexy Boy".

 

Jimmy, along with his 'Mouth of the South' megaphone and infamous piano glasses have travelled the world on various wresting associated tours. He has been to Liverpool several times before and after taking a short tour of The Beatles Story’s award-winning exhibition said: "I am so excited, so thrilled, what a tour! If you’re coming to Liverpool you’ve got to come to see The Beatles Story, it’s unbelievable, we got to see so many great things."

 

"I was in a band back in 1964, The Gentrys was the name of the group and we had a hit song called ‘Keep on Dancing’. The Beatles were number one on the Billboard charts back then and we held the number four spot with that song. Thirty years later a British group called The Bay City Rollers cut the same song and had a big record from it."
