Pete Best To Appear With Beatlemania

Monday, May 6th, 2013

In his first appearance in the United States in three years, the original drummer for The Beatles, Pete Best, will appear with Beatlemania June 22 at Freedom Hill Amphitheatre in Sterling Heights.

The Beatles invited Best to join on 12 August 1960, on the eve of the group’s first Hamburg season of club dates. He was eventually replaced by Ringo Starr on 16 August 1962, when the group’s manager, Brian Epstein, dismissed Best under the direction of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison, following their first recording session at Abbey Road Studios. After working in a number of commercially unsuccessful groups Best gave up the music industry to work as a civil servant for twenty years, before starting the Pete Best Band.

    Now there’s one for the history books, an ex The Beatles drummer in a new band. John Lennon would be turning in his grave!

I first learned about Paul is Dead when my mom was researching and giving seminars on backmasking (did you know a couple of their songs say turn me on, dead man’ and paul is dead’ when played backwards ??). We’ll definitely have to check this out.
