This is a pic of my Beatles room with John Lennon's t-shirt in the center.I'm a first generation fan since 1964...I've been a serious collector for appox. 29 years...I've got autographs (together & solo)..handwritten material...hair from The Beatles...a hat from Lennon from 1980...a pair of Lennon's long john pants from 1970...Lennon's t-shirt from 1980...Lennon's pants (circa.1966-67)...Ringo's used drumsticks... one of Ringo's ties... a splash cymbal used by Ringo......items from Stu Sutcliffe...a guitar case and a shirt from George ...a guitar pick and a water bottle used by McCartney...bed sheet swatches from the 1964 US summer tour...all kinds of stuff. I've had my collection on display at all of the major Beatles shows in the US and Canada...I've been on local..national..and international TV...in the newspapers...on radio...and I've even contributed to a couple of book on Beatles memorabilia...
...once you start collecting...you just can't stop...better then the stock market!!!

    Hey Chuck...I've done shows with Pete Best...and I asked him the same question...he really doesn't know. There has been all kinds of speculation....he was too quiet..he didn't comb his hair into a Beatle cut...his personality didn't mesh with the others...his drumming wasn't good enough...the others...especially Paul...were jealous of Pete's popularity with the female fans...he was the most popular Beatle...girls used to sleep in the garden outside of his bedroom window...just to be close to him...among other rumors..etc. When news got out in Aug.1962 that Pete was no longer the drummer,..there were riots in Liverpool...fans chanted"Pete Forever...Ringo Never"..or"Pete Is Best"...Brian Epstein's car was destroyed by angry Best fans...etc.Pete tried to commit suicide but his future wife Cathy saved him. When The Beatles Anthology 1 was released in 1995..it had appox.10 tracks on it with Pete on drums..and he was paid several million dollars for it...so in the end..he was given his just due as a Beatle...he's really a good guy...
