So, the information above has Pete Best and Stuart Sutcliffe crossed out and doesn't list Ringo Starr as a member, but the picture has Ringo Starr. So, was Ringo just part of Sheridan's regular band but not part of "The Beat Brothers"? Is Pete Best playing drums on the famous "My Bonnie" recording, or was Ringo officially part of The Beatles by then?
