I heard some news today that Pete Best wants to make up with
Paul McCartney & Ringo Starr after 45 years of no contact.
What do you guys think to this?

The Beatles' original drummer Pete Best has invited Sir Paul McCartney to break his 40 (sic) years of silence and get in touch.

Best was famously sacked in favour of Ringo Starr just before the Fab Four hit the big time, but the 65-year-old says he'd like to finally speak to Paul again for the first time since he was booted out of the band.

He explains to the Mail, "We're not getting any younger. We know what we've done and we're not going to think any worse of each other if we had a chat now. God bless us all: it was all 40-odd years ago."


They have to hurry up ...

I think everyone should make up with everyone, because I think people are happier when the air is cleared. You never know when the end might come, and you never get to say what you might have wanted to say.

That said, however, it would really be Paul and Pete having a conversation. I can't see that Ringo had much to do with Pete, although they might have known each other a little from playing a few of the same venues.

From what I understand, John was closest to Pete and George was the one who championed getting Ringo in. So Paul was not the main mover in the replacement matter, or the main friend to become estranged. It might be nice just because Pete sounds like a nice guy.

Would be Great to see Pete talking to them. Metallica did this with  their old guitarist( pre- fame era.) . It was Very emotional! The guy just let loose on them for what they did and treated him like.

It would be good if they become friendsies again. I mean it was 40 odd yrs ago (as PB says) and you know, it aint such a big deal  no more i think. Lets hope that "it wont be long"

him after what happened :-/

Yea... did Pete Best go to Brian Epstein's funeral? What I want to know is what PB thinks of Neil Aspinal staying with the Beatles and all.

By the way, you said "life's very short..." I see now that short is defined as 40yrs ;)

Just wait until you're 40, Kaleidoscope_Eyes! Life will seem very short indeed. In fact, it gets shorter the older you are!  ;D

That said, I don't believe Pete Best went to Brian Epstein's funeral. I've never seen it mentioned. The Beatles did not go because the family didn't want the crowds, although they went to a memorial service later on.

John always said he was chicken. I forget where the quote originated, but it's certainly covered in the Anthology book. Cheers!

OMG, what I would give to even say hi.

Makes me want to ask ... has anyone ever laid eyes on a Beatle?  I went to a Paul McCartney concert, but I mean up close, like close enough to say hi, or even (GASP) shake hands or something?

Oh, I get it.  ;D (Better late than never...)

Ooh, tell us more, DarkSweetLady. I will post George pictures for you. What were your impressions when you met Pete Best? Everyone so far (that I've read about on the web) has really liked him.

harihead you crack me up... I loved the bait! It is a very sexy picture...

OK! Here's the story:

   It was on August 6th at this one concert he was performing at... after the concert he was signing autographs... and we were the last people in line... so we waited for like an hour and a half...
But I was like freaking out for like that whole time. I was like" OMG what do i say!? What if I can't say anything?!... I laugh at it now... ya but I just basically said that i liked the concert and what he was doing now was cool... but I got a drum snare signed.
I didn't want to say anything in refrence to the beatles b/c I didn't know how he might react. but i was wearing a beatle top...

 But I didn't know he was signing or I would have bought my camera. . . maybe next time right?
Is that what you wanted to know...

My pleasure, DarkSweetLady! :)

You got a drum snare signed, how cool! Thanks for the report.  Did you get much of an impression of Pete as a person? I know you were nervous-- I'm sure I would be, too. I just wondered if you got any sense of his personality from seeing him up close. But perhaps he was mostly signing and not chatting.

Anyway, just for fun, here's a pic of the Beatles with Pete:
