Foreword- I apologize now if a thread like this already exists (You don’t expect me to go through 37 odd pages, do you!? a-hard-days-night-paul-10). 

Anyways

I kinda feel sorry for Pete in this clip. I was also expecting some screams from the audience when they revealed his occupation, but I guess not.

He must be important. Joe made a smiley for him on the best Beatles site on the internet. pete-best

You don’t have to look through all the pages. Searching reveals these results:
https://www.beatlesbible.com/f…..;include=2 (Most are about Pete Best. Ignore the ones that have “Peter”.) Search is powerful.

I’d like to express my appreciation for Mona Best. She seems like she was a really great mom, except the part where she gave birth to Pete’s best friend’s son…

I always love how Pete brought his mammy onto TV to defend him for being kicked out of the group. From any interviews both Pete and Roag have given they really show their love and fondness for her but I do love how a man in his 20’s brought his mam on to fight his case. 

Good ole Mona!

They probably had her on as a translator. I can’t understand anything Pete Best said in that.

It was 60 years ago tonight that Pete Best played his last show as a Beatle. Appropriately, it was an evening gig at The Cavern. Pete didn’t know it was his last show, but his bandmates did. Ringo provided my entry (at 10 years old) into the Beatles and all things rock, but I still feel for Pete. pete-best

And of course around 10:00 this morning Brian fired Pete, who had been the Beatles drummer for over two years.

And it was the right decision without any doubt or discussion on why and if Pete knew why. He knew why but well done for using it to make a living.

Certainly. Ringo brought a chemistry to the table with the other 3 Pete never had. They never shared that bond and never would have been the same they were with Ringo. All things considered the combination of those 4 individuals (John, Paul, George, Ringo) was a one in a billion shot and it would not have worked the way it worked with Ringo…on stage as well as in the studio. 

All the best for Pete Best but the Fab Four were meant for each other!
