    Why did they dump Pete Best for Ringo Starr?

    Soy to be so late, Don. That was done at the request of producer George Martin, who didn’t feel Best was good enough. The drummer pictured is not Best, but Andy White, a session drummer Martin hired unaware Ringo had been hired. He played on the original recording of “Love Me Do”, with Ringo relegated to tambourine.

    The record company decided he just wasn’t up to professional standards. The Beatles knew Ringo from another touring band (Rory and the Hurricanes) and asked him to take over the slot.
