Superb BBC radio documentary that was on the other night, charting the year leading up to the release of Love Me Do. The main contributor is Pete Best, so very much drummer related:

Bizarrely, Best doesn't mention fellow Liverpudlian Bernard Purdie's stint with the Fabs...well, it was a long time ago.

If you want a good laugh, there's also the Blagger's Guide to the Beatles:

Catch them while you can (progs will only be up for a week)

Purdie? I'm refusing to get into that lame discussion. But maybe I should say I secretly fixed some of Ringo's tracks too. That could get my name on the map....

Come to think of it, I've heard Ringo state that he in fact tinkered with some of Purdie's drumming on those old Steely Dan LP's. Wouldn't surprise me.

Nah, that was Pete Best (well, he had to do something after being kicked out of the band).

Have not seen it yet, but "Rain" was on radio 6 today.

I forgot what a fantastic song that is, and the performance by all of the band is excellent. One of Ringo's best I think, and Maccas bass lines are a huge part of the song.

And to think It was only a B side. Well....If you have that much good material It makes choosing the A side difficult.
