I have always had a soft spot for poor Pete. From what I know he was a decent enough bloke and a competent drummer. I just feel for him. It had to have hurt to see all the success the Beatles enjoyed in later years. 

It is not well known that Pete’s mother, Mona Best, was the de facto manager of the Beatles before the famous Brian Epstein came along.

Pete’s mother, Mona Best.
