After being fired by The Beatles more than 40 years ago, former drummer Pete Best has at last received support from his ex-band mate Sir Paul McCartney.

Macca has agreed to appear in a short film, which endorses Casbah, a Liverpool-based coffee shop, owned by Pete.

Before getting stardom, The Beatles were habitual customers at the coffee shop, which used to be run by Pete’s mother.

However, after being sacked in 1962, Pete started a bakery shop and then became a civil ­servant.

Casbah holds historic importance for The Beatles, as this was the place where the nascent band practiced.

“I think it’s a good idea to let people know about the Casbah. They know about the Cavern but the Casbah was the place where it all started,” the Daily Express quoted Sir Paul, as saying.

The five-minute film also will also show appearances by Pete and ­brother Rory, The Beatles’ childhood friend Neil Aspinall and John Lennon’s first wife Cynthia.
