A CROONER was clobbered while performing at Liverpool's world-famous Cavern Club.
Shocking recordings of the moment Jay Murray was dumped to the floor midway through a surrender of Sweet Caroline, has appeared on the web.
As he sings the Neil Diamond classic as he strings the guitar, a man invades the scene and grabs Jay by the legs.
The unidentified scene crawler, wearing jeans and a sweater, then flips the singer into the air and slams him into the floor of the club where The Beatles first shot to fame.
The middle-aged attacker then continues to kick Jay while lying on the floor before flying.
Jay is then seen scrambling from the scene as he is hunting for his bearded attacker, Mirror reports.
The Cavern Club wrote a statement on Twitter reading: "We are appalled by an untested attack on one of our entertainers.
"Nothing like this has ever happened in our 28 years of service and hopefully will never again.
"Our excellent door staff grabbed the man and the police were called, but our entertainer wouldn't hit that time and then went back on stage to continue his set.
"Understandably shaken, but fortunately without major damage."
Jay took on Facebook to comment on the clip that has been widely shared on social media.
He wrote, "So I'm finally a celeb on social media. It's a little funny what happened – it happened so fast that **** could have had a knife and I would never have felt it.
"Thank God, he didn't greet all my" friends "who shared it. I'm OK, so so red, so I have him a hidden knuckle that kills me.
"P *** k crying like a baby, apologetic to me. The morale of the story is nice with each other. Congratulations New Year."
Jay received plenty of support on social media, with people expressing their disgust at the violent action.
