Before there was Ringo, there was Pete. Drummer with the Beatles from 1960 to 1962, Best played with the band in Liverpool and Hamburg, then was unceremoniously dropped on the eve of fame and fortune. In Beatle! he relates previously unknown anecdotes that form a fascinating look at the least-documented period of Beatles history.
John, Paul, George . . . and Pete. Few people know much about the Beatles' original drummer, Pete Best. His career with the Beatles spanned the riotous Hamburg club days, and the zenith of the Cavern gigs, only to be cut short just before the group hit the big time. His book gives a unique insight into the formative years of the world's greatest pop group.
Setting out on the long winding road to Beatle enlightenment and avoiding any pot-holed zebra crossings along the way........ This is a guide to the best and most highly regarded books* about The Beatles. Of course there will always be some debate about what makes a good Beatles book but these are based on many reviews and also feedback from hardcore Beatle fans. Your feedback is welcomed. *First Hand Accounts books vary in quality but I have listed for historical interest.
