You got balls...

Insulting a Mod...

Keep it up... You just have so much credibility here now.

You know I have supported you talking about Pete Best. You turn around and insult me. You are truly alienating yourself here.

Throw another insult at me, please... You have such an attitude. I am sure it is helping you win friends in life and I am sure you are getting everything you want, because I am sure people just love you so much.

I am here to talk about The Beatles.  Emphasis on the period between 1960-1962, the time John Lennon said that they were at they were at their best.  As for the Pete Best version of The Beatles being in the past, so is the Ringo Starr version of The Beatles.  Are we not allowed to talk about that either?


Sure doesn't seem like it....

I am not sure that my opinions (and facts) about The Beatles were ever welcomed here as they seem to clash with the opinions of the forums management.

I agree Gary.  Peace & Love.  Things people say often seem worse when they are in writing.   :)

I think Pete prided himself on being a rocker all the way.

Why don't we go all the way and have the Quarrymen join Paul on stage for some skiffle, and an album of skiffle music, along with a dose of 50's rock and roll?


That would be awesome, actually  ;D

Well, I can't see any reason why they should meet up or play together but I'd love to see it happen if they wanted to do it. They must have shared a lot of experiences together and I think that most people, if they'd shared such experiences would be happy to share some time together and indulge in a bit of nostalgia later in their lives. Assuminjg that it won't happen; then I'd think more of them both if they could face a meeting but didn't want to rather than it being something that either of them just couldn't face doing for whatever reason.

You know, this thing with Pete, I think it just comes down to, he was a boring guy. We've seen the interviews and read the stories and of course the STORY is interesting to us, but he is so deadpan and unexciting. Compare him to any of the other guys, even the guys who WEREN'T in the band (except Mal) and he just wasn't a character. John and Paul knew they needed a character to make things work. They had great vision. Ringo was that guy. Ringo was also a better player. But besides that, they just didn't mesh with Pete.

I think it would be a real TRAVESTY if Paul played a set with Pete because he hasn't played a set with Ringo since 1969. He has turned down every opportunity that has come up to play with Ringo. I'm not talking the few songs at Concert for George or Anthology or his recent birthday. Those don't count. An actual, sit down, hour long jam out/concert has not happened and we all know Ringo is chomping at the bit for it to go down, not to mention all us Beatles fans. Ringo has consistently invited him to his all-star jams and Paul declines. So he won't even do THAT.

Furthermore, John saying the early years were the Beatles at their best was most likely his reaction to the hatred of the shaping and molding of his Beatles persona. The  Hamburg Beatles could do whatever they wanted, play what they wanted, wear, eat, drink and f*** anything they wanted. John was still essentially in charge and all these things catered to, and stroked, his ego and rebellious nature. Of course he'd look back at all this fondly. But it was happening DESPITE Pete Best. Pete was just ...there.

Curious, isn't it? Reminds me of television. Boring and banal, but we still switch it on. Can't take our eyes off, in fact. Or can we?

They do get together and play on each others albums though, so that has to count for something. As for them getting together to jam or doing a concert, whats the point? John and George arent there so its kind of an empty deal if you know what I mean.
