BEST OF THE BEATLES

Pete Best talks about his time with the Beatles in a q/a session in the UK.

By Gary Howman

(Thanks very much, Gary, for this great report.)

I was thrilled to note from a local paper that Pete Best was appearing at the King Lynn Arts Centre on 15 October 1999. This was not to be the Pete Best band in concert but the former Beatle alone on stage talking about his time with the Beatles with an opportunity for the audience to ask questions. I hurried to book a ticket at the reasonable price of £7.00 and turned up bright and early at the historic yet cosy venue. The audience was a cross section of ages and styles

Man I do feel bad for Pete, so what if he didn't have the personality maybe that they were looking for. But it wasn't right for them to just off him like that ya know..

But.. I <3 Ringo

Well, you can also look at the bright side for him...

Cause basically he just played in a local band for a couple of years like hundreds of thousands of other people have done, but unlike 99,99% of all those people he still makes money from that band and people still are interested in his stories, only because his former band mates made it big without him. So in a way you could say he's a really lucky bastard. And I guess it just wasn't meant to be for him.

Mr. Best (Besht) is a really good guy and is extremely relative to the Merseybeat scene and the Beatles. I have been lucky enough to meet him on a few occasions, I thought this was a Beatles forum? Alan_H get on back to your limp bizquit chat room.

pete was the FIRST FULL TIME drummer that the beatles had.have you heard them play with no drums?????3 lead guitars and a lame bass if your lucky but no percussion......pete put the beat in beatles.but ringo made them a complete product.
it does not seem likely that pete would have been as happy and go lucky in the back seat as ringo...ringo in the back seat????????no way he recieved the most fan mail in the beginning.he did enhance the others talents as pete could not have.in my opinion anyways.pete was always looking moody and sullen.ringo was spry and funny.
face ringo was the fit but pete was the first.i like petes attempts to create.i bear the man no ill will......

pc31,
Pete Best may not have been the best fit for the Beatles (for whatever reason) no one will ever know for sure? Mr. Starkey did turn out to be the best fit but he certainly wasn't the first choice as Pete's replacement. The Drummer the Beatles initially wanted was Johnny Hutchinson from the Big Three as he was regarded by most as the best drummer in Liverpool at the time. Johnny Hutch had a great singing voice, he filled in as the Beatles drummer for the Larry Parnes audition and numerous shows. He was asked by Epstein to join the band but declined as he believed he was already in the best band in Liverpool. Many people believe that Pete was sacked and quickly replaced by Ringo because of his superior drumming ability, which is not the case.

I don't feel sorry for Pete Best for getting dumped by the Beatles before their huge success since it happens to millions of other legendary rock bands like Mark Stone who was a member of Aerosmith before their rock stardom.  I think Pete is a great rock drummer in his own right who will always hold a little grudge against Paul mostly no matter what he says differently in interviews.  I'm sure millions of Beatles fans would like to see a picture of Paul & Ringo with Pete before their time is up to symbolically heal old wounds from the past which I believe will never happen.
