actually, that was Jimmy Nicholl.  Pete Best was the drummer replaced by 
Ringo on the eve of their first recording sessions in 1962.

and an Oily connection - I have an interview somewhere with Rob where he 
says that Ringo was his first inspiration to play drums.

as for George, if i'd ever had a Beatle living next door to me, George was 
the one i'd want it to be.
