I... 

...saw the title and I thought, "What? Who could possibly forget the Beatles?" 

... think that it's fine to have Pete Best Street or Stu Sutcliffe Way, or whatever. 

... have now made it my mission to visit Paul McCartney Way, John Lennon Drive, George Harrison Close and Ringo Starr Drive.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Especially in Liverpool. I think I'd prefer it if they focused on preservation and restoration rather than renaming streets and making goofy looking monuments. But that just my 2¢ US.

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

How did they miss it? But it's awesome that Stu and Pete are recognized, maybe Pete will stop whining now.

Why not? I mean, we all know Ringo was better. But Pete was in the Beatles, after all. It's not as if Pete was some sort of evil demon thing. Why do you fly into a frenzy every time someone mentions him?

2 semi-successful years doesn't a career make. Pete thinks it does, but it doesn't.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

There you have it, ladies and gentleman. He's milking it for his own good. (Also, 3 solo Lennon songs in this quiz I'm doing? Strange.)

I would prefer that shift in focus as well. But, if it doesn't cost much why not? 

If nothing else, it will give the local cartographers a boost to their economic outlook!

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

So? That doesn't mean he "doesn't deserve" something. (Unless it's something like a place in the Rock&Roll Hall of Fame.)

Anyway, it's pretty predictable now. Remember on that one thread when Von Bontee said "Countdown until paulsbass chimes in and says it was actually Paul saying [something I can't remember]"? All we have to do (is call you on the phone) is say "Pete Best" and you start complaining.

Yep. It's for my local Classic Rock Station, Chez 106.

And..... Pete Best is a free loader, someone who is cashing in on his short tenure of a band who wasn't anything special at the time. Haven't you got enough, Pete? Millions from the Anthology 1 CD, attention and fame that far outways his purpose? Sorry, but I don't bullshit. I speak the truth, and the truth is getting fired after two years, no matter the job, doesn't mean you deserve almost equal stature to your replacement.

I only posted that album cover to annoy you, Mr. Sun, sorry! But you've got a sense of humour, you can appreciate that.

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

One last thing. (Mostly to annoy Sun king. If vonbontee can do it, why can't I? :D) 

Nobody says he has "almost equal stature" as Ringo. He's getting a street named after him. Ringo has a star named after him, for heaven's sake!
(Also a robot.)  

Actually, two more things. Saying you "don't bulls***" is OK, but don't say you speak "the truth" if you're really just giving an opinion.

1. I guess.

2. All of the things he does are revision and changing history.

3. Thanks for allowing my posts!

4. I was tired. I felt my statement was more factual then it is.
