Pete Best, The Beatle’s original regular drummer arrived in Lima Peru on Thursday night at Airport International Jorge Chávez.
Best is scheduled to play at a Beatles tribute concert on Saturday, at Parque de la Exposicion, where he will perform five or six songs with the group A Day In The Life.
Best was invited to join The Beatles on August, 1960 ahead of the band’s bookings in Hamburg, but was eventually replaced by Ringo Starr.
“I have nothing to forgive the Beatles for what happened long ago,” Pete said.
“It changed my life. I can say I learned to not be so innocent. I put what I learned into practice. Now no one can kick me out of my own band,” he said.
Yesterday friday, Pete Best was honored by the Municipality of San Miguel, and named during a ceremony at John Lennon Park.
