This topic is about Pete Best and some of you seem to be talking about Help!. Hehe.

 

 

Well, I never really knew his personality & I haven't seen much of him but "Ringo was a better Beatle, Pete was a better drummer."

Well let's get it back on track!

I've been reading quite a bit about Pete recently and the more I read the more I admire how humble he is.

I don't know enough personal info about the man to either like or dislike him.

As for his drumming, it is hard for me to say whether he was worse or better than Ringo because they had very different styles. On Anthology 1, I though Pete's style was best suited for songs like Cry For a Shadow and Like Dreamers Do. But I preferred Ringo's and Andy White's style on Love Me Do versus Pete's. In the grand scheme of things, I do believe Ringo was the right choice as he made for a better Beatle.

I also agree with Nicholaevna Romanov above in post #30 in that his dismissal could have been handled much better.  

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.
