Calendar* Correction: The Silver Beetles

Some websites claim that Johnny & the Moondogs changed their name to the Silver Beetles on May 20, 1960.  Some websites say that the name change to the Silver Beetles occurred on May 5, though there are no reputable sources for this.  According to the book The Beatles As Musicians:  The Quarry Men Through Rubber Soul by Walter Everett, the name change occurred on May 10.  Further, according to The Beatles Bible, the group stopped using the name Johnny & the Moondogs in January, and briefly called themselves the Beatals before switching to the Silver Beetles on May 10.
