Pete BestPete Best, the original drummer of The Beatles before they became famous, is in India. On Tuesday evening, Best was spotted in the Capital performing some hit nostalgic numbers for his fans.

Ringo Starr had replaced Pete in 1962, just after two years of association with the band.

"I basically played numbers from the 60s and 70s because I knew that's what my audience will look for and I hope they were not disappointed," Pete was quoted by a website, as saying.

Pete performed at the British Council in New Delhi as part of the Imagine Liverpool festival. "It was great performing here, the crowd was very nice and they were really into the music and they wanted more," added Pete, who performed in India for the first time.

Interestingly, the drummer also has a strong connection with India. His mother Mona was born in Delhi.
