Upon further thought, and with a clearer head, Pete later decides against appearing, and he does not show up for the night’s performance. A lot of The Beatles fans are partial to Pete, who is their favorite. There are other reasons for Pete’s sudden departure: George Martin had said he didn’t think Pete was good enough to record with The Beatles, but another, more troublesome situation had developed. The Beatles road manager, Neil Aspinall, had become involved with Mona Best, Pete’s mother, and it was rumored that she was pregnant with his baby.
