2013-06-14 Pete Best in LimaPhoto: Pete Best receives the "Distinguished Visitor" decoration in the district of San Miguel, Lima, Peru, 14 June 2013.

Lima, Jun 15.- Pete Best, was declared an "illustrious visitor" by the mayor of the Lima district of San Miguel, Salvador Heresi, who is a huge Beatles fan.

Best arrived in the Peruvian capital to give a concert on Sunday in honor of his ex-musical group called "A Day in the Life," together with Peruvian musicians and singers who are fans of The Beatles.

The mayor of San Miguel invited Best to visit the park and monument dedicated to John Lennon, and Pete then sang several of the group's songs accompanied by other Peruvian musicians.

In a statement on Peru's RPP radio, the drummer said he had "no fear" of playing with the surviving members of the band - Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr - though he doubted that such a session would ever happen.

Best said he would have liked to play with them on "The White Album" because he considers it to be the most varied of all their records.

The musician said he finally got even with Ringo Starr by getting to Peru before him.

Ringo is scheduled to do a concert in Lima next November.

  1. Not necessary to use up all your vacation to go on a pilgrimage when you're Paul McCartney. You just say you want to do a show in Memphis, and in your spare time you take up the opportunity to visit Graceland since you were never there when the King was still alive. Here you can see Paul visiting Elvis's grave and holding his acoustic guitar!


‘It all boils down to this.
They were four war babies from Liverpool who really did change the world,
and whose music and impact still lives on in so many ways, after all these years.
I say, let’s scrub what we know, or think we know, and start over:
Who really were these people, and how did it all happen?'

Her album Our Version Of Events remains in the top 10 of the UK Album Charts this week for its 63rd consecutive week. This means that Emeli’s first album has now overtaken the Beatles to officially become a record breaking debut, having spent more consecutive weeks in the UK top 10 than any other debut album

On hearing the news yesterday Emeli said: “I’m completely lost for words and this is something I could only have dreamed of. The Beatles are the greatest band of all time and their legacy lives on and continues to inspire all of us that make music. I’m so happy that so many people have connected with the stories and the songs on the record, this really is our version of events now. I’d like to say thank you to everyone that has bought, played or shared my music in the last year, without your support this would never have been possible.”
