Best's popularity with fans was reportedly a source of friction, as many female fans considered him to be the band's best-looking member. McCartney's father, Jim McCartney , was present at the time and admonished Best: 'Why did you have to attract all the attention?
Why didn't you call the other lads back? I think that was very selfish of you. Lennon, McCartney, and Harrison all later stated that they regretted the manner in which Best was sacked. Lennon admitted that 'we were cowards when we sacked him. We made Brian do it. There was something sneaky about the way it was done. The Beatles had had two years in which to dismiss him but hadn't done so, and now — as they were beginning to reap the rewards for their long, hard slog, with money rolling in and an EMI contract secured — he was out.
It was the most underhand, unfortunate and unforgivable chapter in the Beatles' rise to monumental power. Soon after Best was dismissed, Epstein attempted to console him by offering to build another group around him, but Best refused. Feeling let down and depressed, he sat at home for two weeks, not wanting to face anybody or answer the inevitable questions about why he had been sacked.
As the Pete Best Four, and later as the Pete Best Combo a quintet , they toured the United States with a combination of s songs and original tunes, recording for small labels, but they had little success. The group disbanded shortly afterwards. Bickerton and Waddington were to find greater success as songwriters in the s and s, writing a series of hits for the American female group the Flirtations and the British group the Rubettes. Richie Unterberger , reviewing the CD, stated that the music's "energy level is reasonably high," that Bickerton and Waddington's songwriting is "kind of catchy," and that Best's drumming is "ordinary.
Best decided to leave show business, and by the time of Hunter Davies' authorised Beatles biography in , he was not willing to talk about his Beatles association. Years later he stated in his autobiography, "the Beatles themselves certainly never held out a helping hand and only contributed to the destruction with their readily printed gossip that I had never really been a Beatle, that I didn't smile, that I was unsociable and definitely not a good mixer.
There was not a single friendly word from any one of them". With his periodic illness. Davies recalled that while working with the Beatles on their authorised biography in , "when the subject of Pete Best came up they seemed to cut off, as if he had never touched their lives.
They showed little reaction I suppose it reminded them not just that they had been rather sneaky in the handling of Pete Best's sacking, never telling him to his face, but that for the grace of God, or Brian Epstein, circumstances might have been different and they could have ended up [like Pete].
In , Best married Kathy, a Woolworth's sales clerk whom he met at an early Beatles show;  they have remained married and have two daughters, as well as four grandchildren. The most he could do, he recalls, was to offer to retrain them in other fields, "which was an emotional issue for people who had done one kind of work all their lives.
Eventually, Best began giving interviews to the media, writing about his time with the group and serving as a technical advisor for the television film Birth of the Beatles. He found a modicum of independent fame, and has admitted to being a fan of his former band's music and owning their records. The collage of torn photographs on the Anthology 1 album cover includes an early group photo that featured Best, but Best's head was removed, revealing a photo of Starr's head, taken from the Please Please Me cover photo the missing section of the photograph appears on the cover of the album Haymans Green.
A small photograph of Best can be seen on the left side of the Anthology cover. The tag line was "Probably the Pete Best lager in the world", a variation of Carlsberg's well-known slogan. In , after twenty years of turning down all requests to play drums in public, Best finally relented, appearing at a Beatles convention in Liverpool. He and his brother Roag performed, and afterwards his wife and mother both told him, "You don't know it, but you're going to go back into show business.
Best was presented with a framed certificate before his band performed. Best is portrayed in several films about the Beatles. In the biopic Birth of the Beatles , for which Best was a technical advisor, he is played by Ryan Michael. The Rainn Wilson film The Rocker , about a drummer kicked out of a glam metal band through no fault of his own, was inspired by Best's termination.
Best had a cameo in the movie. The play, which was mainly fiction, showed a scenario where after Pete Best's sacking, he went on to become a world-famous rock superstar while his ex-group struggled as one hit wonders.

But now my kingdom is from another place. Jesus answered, "You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth.
Everyone on the side of truth listens to me. As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus' body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him.
Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away.
