The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: October 2, 1965 (Saturday)

Peter Best, former drummer with the band, files an $8 million lawsuit against Playboy magazine, the Beatles en masse and Beatle drummer Ringo Starr in particular. Best charges that in an interview with the Beatles, published in Playboy last February, a statement attributed to Starr served to hinder Best from gaining employment and immeasurably damaged his career. In a separate action, Best’s New York attorney, Barry Goldberg, said a $50 million breach-of-contract suit against the Beatles and their manger Brian Epstein, has been instituted in England. Best is touring the U.S. in news conferences pertaining to the suits. He was heard explaining to one reporter, that he was fired from the Beatles because he “made out best with the girls.” He has a new band in England - “Mr. Maestro.”
