FINDING THE FOURTH BEATLE

Finding the Fourth Beatle manages to challenge what you thought you knew about Pete Best’s exit from, and Ringo Starr’s entry into, the group. Supported by evidence from an eyewitness who was closely involved in the saga, Bedford and Popper reveal that Best was not sacked/dismissed by either Epstein or The Beatles.” (Record Collector Magazine, February 2019)


“The must-read Beatles book of the year. A masterwork of rock ’n’ roll sleuthing and good old-fashioned research.” Kenneth Womack, author of Maximum Volume: The Life of Beatles Producer George Martin (The Early Years, 1926-1966)


“Another Beatles book? Do we really need any more, you ask? Well, put simply, if it is as interesting and informative as this one - yes we do.” (Record Collector, February 2019)


“Once again, David Bedford and Garry Popper address a unique and relatively untouched angle in the Beatles story with characteristic style, using exhaustive and relevant research, unfettered objectivity and provoking insight.” Lou Longobardi, Beatles Fan


“Through meticulous research, skilled fact-finding and combined with dozens of interviews, David Bedford and Garry Popper take us through the entire history of The Beatles’ 23 drummers (yes, 23!). This book is incredible, fascinating and quite revelatory.” Eddie Deezen, Actor and huge Beatles Fan


“Thought you were tuned in to the Beatles drummer line-up changes all those years ago..? Impeccably researched and a highly entertaining narrative, this book should be on any thoughtful, dedicated Beatles fan book-shelf.” Paul J. Clinton, 35 years a dedicated fan
