Once attentively go through the life timeline of Pete Best and you’ll get to learn how ironic the life could be. Seriously, he chased his dreams for years and eventually quit them and worked for nearly 20 years as a normal worker in order to sustain in this world. Then again, life took a turn and he reached the topmost height of his dreams. He not only achieved a huge success but also an enormous net worth. Let’s find out how much is Pete Best’s net worth in 2019.
Pete Best is an English musician and drummer who was born on 24 November 1941 in Chennai (then Madras), India. His father Donald Peter Scanland was a marine engineer while his mother Alice Mona Shaw was probably the housewife at the time of his birth. At that time, a huge turmoil was going on in India, so his family moved to Liverpool, England in 1945. His father died in WW II. However, this didn’t affect his life much as Pete’s mother married another man who took care of them well. He completed his early education from Blackmoor Park primary school in West Derby and then, moved to Liverpool Collegiate Grammar School. By the time, he had decided his career, so quit the studies and started working for his dreams.
From the professional aspect, Pete’s life has never been stable. He has gone through many ups and downs but when it comes to his personal life, Pete is totally a devoted father and loving husband. He met the love of his life Kathy in 1962 and the duo married next year itself. Today, after more than 50 years, the couple is happy in their own world with their two daughters.
Pete was interested in music since his childhood. He listened to his inner voice when he was in school. So, he quit the study and formed a music group named ‘Black Jacks’ with the help of his mother. With this music group, he grabbed the eyeballs of local people and even made a sizable fan following which ultimately helped him to become the part of worldwide known music record company ‘The Beatles’. He performed in Beatles as a lead drummer for almost next 1-2 years. Things were happening well then, all of sudden, one day he was fired from The Beatles. But he didn’t stop. He worked with many other music groups but they all turned out to be the disaster. After constant failures, he made up his mind to quit his music career completely in late 1960. Soon, he found a job as a civil servant and started working there but something was missing in his life and that was music.
After many requests from his fans, friends and family members, he finally made a comeback in show business in 1988. He founded the group ‘The Pete Best Band’ with his brother and this time, success came to him.
