can Chat With Pete Best 7PM (EST) September 3rd
BBC members will be invited to join
in a live, intimate chat with the one and only, Pete
Best! He will personally answer BBCers
for a full 45 minute Live Chat. And that will happen ONLY on Joe
Johnsons Beatle Brunch Club! We hope youll be there
with all your questions. Look for a new Live Chat every month on
The BBC. Participating BBC members during the evenings chat
with Pete Best will be eligible to win a cool prize. ONE BBC member
name will be selected at random after Pete says, Good Night
I am so pleased to announce that because of the incredible
interest and media support of the new album, "Haymans Green,"
The Pete Best Band will be arriving in the states on September 1st.
Unfortunately that means we won't be doing the on-line chat from
the Casbah Coffee Club as previously announced. Rest assured, we
promise Beatle Brunch Club fans will still chat with Pete Best
same date, same time, same website (JJsBBC.com). We'll just
be chatting from a US location. The early arrival is due to special
invitations for appearances at two very high profile conventions,
Transworld and the 50th anniversary AARP convention in Washington
