Pete Shotton RIP

I’ve just heard of the passing of Pete Shotton, John Lennon’s best friend, and a founder member of the Quarrymen. Pete later was the manager of the Beatles Apple Shop in Baker Street, and John’s personal assistant.

In 1997 Pete took part in a reunion of the Quarrymen, and I was lucky enough to meet him, and the other members of the band, the the 40th anniversary party for the Cavern Club.

Pete had been in ill-health for a while, but it is very sad to hear we’ve lost another very important member of the Beatles family.

RIP Pete
