Pete Best becomes The Beatles Drummer

On 11th August 1960, Paul McCartney telephoned Mona Best to ask if Pete could come for an audition on the 12th August and if he wanted to come to Hamburg with them.

Pete was delighted and made his way to the Wyvern Club (later the Blue Angel) where he passed the audition.

The Unknown Drummers

There was an “unknown drummer” who was also approached who decided not to go for an audition. When researching Finding the Fourth Beatle, David Bedford unearthed another drummer who could have gone for an audition, but decided not to!

How Many Beatles Drummers?

How many Beatles drummers can you name? In our book, we have 23 drummers between 1956 and 1970. If you can’t get 23 drummers, then you need this book!
