The Talented Pete Best Part Five

The Talented Pete Best Part Five

This is The Talented Pete Best Part Five, which you won’t see anywhere. I enjoy The Beatles, and I enjoy Pete Best. I would never of heard of him had it wasn’t for The Beatles, but I do pl ay his two albums from iTunes and I have some old vinyl albums (that’s out of print), of The Beatles with Pete Best as drummer and he’s better than what everyone who is a Beatle fan. He’s not as good as Ringo Starr, but  Ringo Starr isn’t as good as Pete Best neither. Each one is different so it’s hard to tell what really would have happen, if Pete Best had continued as The Beatles in the 1960’s, instead of Ringo Starr. I wouldn’t change it, because of history, might not be the same, and Ringo Starr wrote some songs and Lennon&McCartney wrote some for him. Would they do the same for Pete Best, that we may never know, but with all this time, Pete Best never wrote songs of his own. I still like Pete Best, but as a Beatle, I don’t know.
