Know Your Beatles History

Since it’s Music Monday, let’s reach into the Rock n Roll archives, shall we?

Today is actually an important day in Beatles history. On this day in 1962 the band fired then-drummer Pete Best. Bands fire members all the time of course, but this story is more about his replacement – another Liverpudlian who was better known at the time as the lightning fast drummer for Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. He was born Richard M. Starkey, but was (and is) better known the world by his nickname – Ringo. The rest is history, which you can commemorate by grabbing this Beatles Collector’s Card from the Swag Store.
