^ Not too sure what you expected when you asked him his thoughts on Ringo....

I was in an elevator with Pete Best once at a fest for beatle fans convention 10 years ago. Granted he was handsome but not very nice or frendly.He wanted money or a drink for an autograph.he was so frosty I asked him what he thought of Ringo. His reply was," he's ok". I can see why John was quoted as saying once," Pete was a good drummer but Ringo was a better Beatle". He certainly left a lot to be desired.

Was he friendly before you asked him about Ringo? What did you want him to autograph, it wasn't a picture of Ringo was it? And quite a few people who appear at conventions want things in return for autographs, its not new - tho i would be annoyed as well if that was the response i got.

I met The Beatles in March 1963 at the New Musical Express Poll Winners Concert at the Empire Pool, Wembley.

At this time I was employed by pop singer Joe Brown and actually ‘gatecrashed’ their dressing room by following Roy Orbison in. I did get all their autographs and stayed for about ten minutes before I was politely asked to leave.

I met Paul McCartney again in 1974 in Nashville, Tennessee, when he was visiting the Opryland theme park and George Harrison and I met on two other occasions at Brands Hatch and Donington motor racing circuits.

Oooo, a dressing room gatecrasher! Glad to have you here on the Beatles Bible.

I really liked Opryland. Too bad it closed down.

Much has changed in Music City - Nashville, Tennessee - over the years. The old Ryman Auditorium, home of the original Grand Ole Opry, was also closed when I made my first visit in 1974. The Opry had moved to Opryland so I saw many great stars there.
