if pete had had the talent any of the fab four had he would have been more.........he didn't have the desire or want to be in a second rate rock band.which is where they were b4 ringo.noone but ringo could have been the 4th.it had to be a down player presence not a big show presence.

i would like to share an email with you.......Dear Beatles' Fans,
 
    I saw Pete Best, the Beatles' original drummer, at the Jaxx in West Springfield, Virginia, on Thursday, July 15.  Pete and his band started at 9:15 and played the following set list:
 
1. Slow Down
2. What'd I Say
3. One After 909
4. Please Mr. Postman
5. P.S. I Love You
6. My Bonnie
7. Cry for a Shadow
8. September in the Rain
9. Roll Over Beethoven
10. Some Other Guy
11. Sweet Georgia Brown
12. Hello Little Girl
13.  Like Dreamers Do
14.  Till There Was You
15.  I Saw Her Standing There
16.  Twist and Shout
17.  Kansas City       
 
Encore (actually, the band never left the stage)
18.  Johnny B. Good
 
    Pete's band consisted of a lead singer who looked like a young Phil Collins, two guitarists, a bass player, and a second drummer (Pete's half-brother, Roag, son of Neil Aspinall).  Everyone had thick Liverpool accents and talked like the Beatles.  They all wore black t-shirts and black pants.
 
    Pete is a competent drummer, but he is not a flashy or charismatic performer.  He was content to stay in the background while the lead singer did most of the talking.  Pete came out from behind the drums only twice, to introduce "What'd I Say," and to introduce "My Bonnie."
 
    Fewer than 100 people attended the show.  On the plus side, I was able to go up to the railing at the front of the stage whenever I wanted. Most of the crowd stayed for autographs after the show. 
 
    Pete was very polite and cordial, and complied with all requests for pictures and autographs.  He autographed my booklet from the "Beatles Anthology 1" CD, and posed for a picture with me.
 
    In summary, I enjoyed the show.  My feelings are the same as after my first Pete Best show in 2001 - I was thrilled to meet and shake the hand of someone who knew and performed with John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison, and who made early contributions to their music.
 
Sincerely,
 
Jeff Root

One listen to Love Me Do on the Anthology reveals why Pete was sacked, IMO.  The drumming was not very good.  During the harmonica solo, he is all off.

Ringo was far better.

There's an outtake on Anthology 1 with Pete drumming.  Most of it's pretty bad, but during the solo it gets really bad.  He's way off the beat.

Pete is interesting because of how close he came to being a star, but he's no different, IMO, than Stu or any of the Quarrymen or any other member of any famous band who got kicked out before the big break.

Ringo got the gig because he was better.  End of story.

Stu wasn't kicked out, he left.

Of course, you're right.  I was just making a point.  Over the years, Pete's legend has grown to the point where people can't conceive that he was kicked out for the simple reason that Ringo was far better.  It has to be that everybody was jealous because he was so good looking and he was better than Ringo, ect. 

The legend has only grown because the Beatles are the biggest band in the world.

Yes. And, it's true that Stu wasn't much of musician either. As I recall he couldn't even play bass.
