I'm watching the snooker for several hours now from the BBC at the moment. It's still not finished yet.

The LLS lineup was very poor from looking at who was available tonight. It was the main reason why I gave it a miss after all.

But their combined characteristics are people that make them , people who should never be on TV.

Awkward indeed.
I know who I believe! You could see the flight attendants face drop when the mother came out with it. She was shocked.

In defence of Paul and John, they weren’t looking for a long-term drummer at the time Pete joined.

They had already been booked to go to Hamburg, but had no drummer. They just happened to know that Pete had a drumkit because they were playing in his mother’s club.

It was less ‘who we can really gel with’, more ‘he’s got drums, he’s in’.






Paul and Yoko’s lawyers told me to say that.

Lots of Petey stuff on the Youtube,


he did an advert for Carlsberg which aired during the first run of the Beatles Anthology series






Howard Stern interviews Paul here, he says Pete called in sick one night and Ringo filled in for him and was great





A lesson for us all there, next time you are the drummer in The Beatles - don't call in sick or Ringo will get your job and you will end up on the Late Late Show 48 years later talking to Tubs

but george was also recruited in a pretty casual way. None of the beatles was especially talented as instrumentalists anyway. Apparently John was jealous of Pete's good looks, which is why he got fired

At least George had a few years to get to know John and Paul on both a personal and professional level.

The three needed a drummer with just a week to go before Hamburg, Pete was playing in The Blackjacks in The Casbah at the time. Knowing The Blackjacks were about to split, the Fab Three seized their chance and grabbed Pete.
