Here’s a decision to make. Be the drummer for The Beatles or drive a forklift.
On June 11, 1960, Tommy Moore, who at that time was the drummer for The Beatles was faced with the choice of staying in the band or going back to driving a forklift. Tommy choose to drive the forklift and not the beat.
The Beatles replaced him with Norman Chapman who only lasted for only 3 shows. The band then found Pete Best, and they were off to Germany the next day.
We have to wonder if Tommy ever kicked himself for the decision? But in honesty, at that point, who knew?
Here is a picture of Tommy on drums with John and Paul.
