In our latest episode, and after recently discussing the Fifth Beatle, Paul interviews David about his latest book, “Finding the Fourth Beatle”.
Who was the Fourth Beatle, and who was looking for him? And who are the 23 drummers featured in the book?
Listen as David talks through how he and fellow author Garry Popper set off on the trail to discover how many drummers played with The Beatles (starting with the Quarrymen and finishing in 1970) either on stage, on record or other performance. And eventually, David found 23 drummers!
However, along the way, David discovered that Pete Best was never sacked! A fact we have taken for granted since 1962, is no longer a fact. Through interviewing Brian Epstein’s lawyer, the truth has been revealed for the first time.
