We, the undersigned, applaud Hamburg\'s commemoration of its undeniable part in the Beatles\' formative years, but we feel that any sculpture of the band would be incomplete without the inclusion of Beatle drummer Pete Best. Mr. Best was their drummer beginning with the very first show they played at the Indra club. It was more than two years later that Ringo Starr joined and he only played with them in Hamburg during the very last series of shows at the Star Club. Pete Best\'s vital involvement in the Beatles\' early years is often obscured by the enormous fame the band achieved after he had left. But he was most certainly the drummer of record during the overwhelming majority of time the band spent in Hamburg. You have seen fit to include Stuart Sutcliffe in the sculpture, yet Mr. Sutcliffe left the band more than a year before Mr. Best. We strongly believe that any sculpture of the Beatles should include all of them, in order to best represent the complete story. Thank you.


We are a group who believe that Hamburg is effectively attempting to rewrite Beatles\' history. To deny that Pete Best was not a part of the \'Hamburg Days\' is a travesty. We need to bring this to the attention of the masses and to right this wrong. As John Lennon would say, \"Just gimme some truth\".
