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

Sure, other drummers also had problems with timing, but Best was REALLY bad. His timing is literally all over the place, he could not play 120bpm for more than five seconds. Bonham and Watts were way better. And Ringo played like a clockwork, did not arrive late, had feel and constant dynamics, a solid bassdrum in his repertoire. He was millions of times better than Best in all areas based on what we can read and hear in all the historical documents that we have access to. Best was okay to get them through their seconds stage of their career, but his abilities were not sufficient for the third, final stage of the carreer of the fab four. It is not a drama. It is what it is. Some people are simply more suited for certain jobs than others.
