Authentic Signed Pete Best Photos, Frames, Mounts and Displays
Pete Best is an English musician, mainly known as the original member and first drummer of The Beatles. Pete’s mum opened the Casbah coffee club in the cellar of her house, originally as a members-only club for Pete, his younger brother and their friends to meet and listen to pop music of the day. The Beatles who were originally known as the Quarrymen went to the club for their first booking and performed on several occasions.
Pete Best was invited to join The Beatles, who had gone through many name changes and several line-up changes, played with them for two years as their resident drummer until Ringo Starr replaced him.
He then gave up working in the music industry and worked as a civil servant before starting The Pete Best Band, appearing at a Beatles convention with his brother. He now regularly tours the world sharing the drumming with his brother. Pete was inducted into the “All You Need if Music” Hall of fame as the debut charter member. He has been further honoured by the city of Liverpool naming two streets, Pete Best Drive and Casbah Close.
