About Pete Best
Randolph Peter “Pete” Best is an English musician with a net worth of $2 million. He was principally known as the first drummer and an original member of the Beatles, from 1960 to 1962. People refer to him as the Fifth Beatle.
Best came from the city of Madras which was a part of British India. Best’s mother, Mona Best moved to Liverpool and opened the Casbah Coffee Club in the Bests’ house cellar. During that time, the Beatles were famous as the Quarrymen and played some of their first concerts in that club.
On August 12, 1960, the Beatles invited Best to join them on the eve of the group’s first Hamburg season of club dates. On August 16, 1962, Ringo Starr eventually replaced Best.
