The Bests were good to the Beatles. The whole experience would have been a reckoning for anyone, and what a trip for Ringo, sitting down in that seat and bam! Off to the races.

I would say one thing.... If Pete had "no inkling whatsoever" that he might be sacked, then that is just a testimony of how he was not part of the very tight clique that the Threetles were.

clique
/klēk,klik/
noun
noun: clique; plural noun: cliques
a small group of people, with shared interests or other features in common, who spend time together and do not readily allow others to join them.

Can anyone imagine Pete fitting in this way?

I think it's called denial. Oh well, it's not like he's the leader of the free world or anything.

Oct 19 1961...
The Beatmakers - for one night only
Two of Liverpool’s top groups, The Beatles and Gerry And The Pacemakers, joined forces for a one-time-only performance and created Liverpool’s first supergroup, the Beatmakers. They were playing a mid-week gig at Liverpool’s Litherland Town Hall when they decided to join forces and perform as a single unit.

The lineup comprised: guitarists George Harrison on lead and Paul McCartney on rhythm, John Lennon provided vocals and piano, Pete Best and Freddy Marsden shared the drumming stool, Les McGuire played saxophone, Les Chadwick added bass and Gerry Marsden brought additional lead guitar and vocals. Another Liverpool group Karl Terry and his Cruisers were also on the bill and Karl Terry added more vocals to complete the Beatmakers’ lineup.

This is about Ringo's drums, but also provides a great view of George playing the
1963 Rickenbacker Fireglo 425. SN# BH 439 (Manufactured in August 1962)
