Some people call Pete Best the most unfortunate guy in music history, but he's actually quite lucky. He's just one of many thousands of guys that played in a regionally succesful band in his youth, but he got lucky because his old band became really famous afterwards and made him a milionair.

Tell me about it. I live in Wisconsin. Sir Paul owns the rights to the state song "On Wisconsin" which means he gets royalties every time the marching band plays it at a football game. I was hoping when he played here the last few times he'd at least play a few bars of it since he owns it. He owns rights to so much stuff that he probably doesn't even remember that its part of his portfolio, so to speak.
