I think marriage to Nancy agrees with him.   ;)

I'd say he deserves an agreeable wife!

I think history proved changing Pete for Ringo was the right move for the group in so many ways.  My problem is more about how Pete was treated and continues to be treated when people look at the history of The Beatles.

He might have got money, but I feel he still doesn't get proper recognition for the significant contribution he made while a member of The Beatles.

I think your beating yourself up. What percentage of the population has even heard Pete playing with the Beatles? What percent knows what they went through together? What percent even cares?

Most people recognize his name when its mentioned and thats what you, me, and he will have to settle for, because its not going to ever change.

I think the evidence suggests none of the 4 Beatles could care less about him. I wouldn't  bother yourself with it. It's ancient history and Pete's doing alright now.

I made a short film about it that I am now out promoting.  A little late for me to not bother myself with it.

So basically this entire thread was nothing but spam. Cool.

I didn't start this thread, Nada Surf did. roll:)   If you think Nada Surf's posts are spam, direct your comments there. :-*
 
As for me making a film.  I made a film (at my own time and expense) to shine a light on a part of Beatles history (and Rock & Roll history) that I feel hasn't gotten its proper due.   That's also why I post on Beatles Boards and read and respond to posts myself.  That's not spam either.

I have a second film coming out later this year, also Beatles related.  This one is called "Unbelievable!" and examines the influence The Beatles had on Michael Jackson & his career.  The influence was MUCH bigger than most people think.

This thread turned out to be spam, which usually happens when a controversial topic meets people so in love with the people involved that they can't put out a decent thought...
I merely asked if anyone thought there would be any truth to Sam Leach's assertion on Best's mom and all the Ringo lickers went on the defense...
It's hilarious!
Nobody was ripping Ringo!!!!

. I've just realsied I've got this thread mixed up with http://www.dmbeatles.com/forums/index.php?topic=12515.0;topicseen that one. but as it's pretty much the same theme I'll say my peice here.

There's just an underlying despertate case of sour grapes emintating from the Pete camp and and this desperate helpless, pathetic, uncontrollable urge to say something contradicting other people's accounts...just stories contradicting stories contradicting stories. People who knew the Beatles in Liverpool like Sam leach or whoever may be right or maybe wrong but I just don't care about what happend or why. I'm interested in what people say but if they're sort of implying the Beatles did something wrong or, bizzarely, that without Mona Best or whoever they couldn't or wouldn't have made it then they can just stuff it.

By the way, did you all see where George Harrison and Allan Williams said Tommy Moore was the best drummer they ever had?
