MNTB Today In Music – The Beatles

Drummer Tommy Moore made the fateful decision to quit The Beatles and return to his job of driving a forklift at a bottle works company. He was briefly replaced by Norman Chapman, who was called into National Service after just three gigs. After going drummer-less and mostly jobless for a few weeks, the band hired Pete Best on August 12th, only one day before they were to go to Hamburg to play a string of club dates. Pete Best was fired August 16, 1962 and replaced by Ringo Starr.
