Tommy Moore
« on: December 19, 2004, 04:49:16 PM »

Hey why no mention of Tommy Moore. Tommy played in the band for a while and was regarded by George as the best drummer they ever had. Tommy was a friend of my fathers and i knew him well,he was like an uncle to me and such a nice bloke. sadly Tommy passed away in September 1981.

do any members know or wish to post about Tommy??thanks Tony.

yes tommy moore was there.
he was older than the other three.he was 25 when he joined.he was a docks worker.that drove a fork lift i recall.
wasn't his girl friend always on him to quit because he made no money playing with the guys???he was also unreliable they said.often late to shows if he even showed.
i am not trying to degrade him just relate what my conception of him is.its probally biased.it comes only from what i have read.you have shone a new light on tommy.please carry on.....

I am no Beatles expert,i like the music and being from their home town the interests are all around.I also Once lived in Arnold Grove and if any off you have ever visited Liverpool and took a photo of George`s old house then you would have stood outside my old house to take it.i also once had a flat in Faulkner street next to where John and Cynthia first lived together. i know a few people who work on the Beatles tours in Liverpool and would be happy to answer anyone`s Questions about places in Liverpool,just PM me or write in the general boards and i will try to answer.but remember i am no expert.

Right now Tommy Moore. Well Tommy worked in Standards bottle works in garston and he did drive a forklift.(my father worked with him there)he had a flat in Smithdown Lane with his girlfriend.Tommy said she suffered depression and was violent on occasions and would tell The Beatles to F#*' off if ever they met.He said himself He could not always turn up at gigs due to the arguments. He was not bitter that he left the band and was a big fan.he took me to my first Beatle convention and would tell me stories about the lads.Tommy later married another girl and had a daughter called Claire.he divorced and lived in the Belle Vale area of liverpool.This is when i got to know him better and he really was a great guy.sadly he died in 1981 and only 11 people came to his funeral.i thought this was very sad.Bob wooler was there and spoke highly of Tommy.

Tommy was only with the Beatles a short time,but he did what most of us have dreamed off.i have read a lot off books and he is not mentioned much and this is why i wanted to put him up on your forum.He played the drums for a while with The Beatles and i believe he deserves a mention for that.so thanks for letting me write about my old friend Tommy on your forum.

Feel free to ask any questions..Thanks again Tony.

I've often wondered what's become of some the people that were present during the Beatles early years. I'm sorry to find out that tommy  passed away.   Your knowing him and  being so close gives us Beatle fans a more personal insight into Tommys life.

Tommy Moore joined them on the tour to Scotland, backing up Billy Fury. Tommy and Stu were often treated badly by John Lennon's mean remarks. I think one day during the tour the van they were travelling in almost crashed and Tommy got a suitcase in his eye, which turned totally black. John had to laugh about that all that time he looked at him. I think that's another reason why Tommy left. John was bugging him all the time.

Appreciated Andaludias information. Here is what I have written about Tommy:

MOORE, TOMMY. A Liverpool drummer, he played with the Silver Beatles in 1960. The group had been performing without a drummer as the Quarry Men, but began changing their name and felt they needed someone in the drum seat. After Brian Casser had said that the name the Beatals was no good, they changed it to the Silver Beetles (also Silver Beatles) and, on Casser
