Default Re: Pete Best - His Weaknesses as a Drummer?

But the strengths on both Andy White's and Ringo's versions are abundantly apparent when stacked up against each other. Actually a pretty damned good reference for mine.
OK man chill. Point I was making is that most people still don't know that it's not Ringo on the version of Love Me Do they've listened to all their life. Same with Please Please Me and P.S. I Love You.

Agreed Pete Best was a very basic drummer, the early demos and the Decca Tapes are more than proof.
