Random Poem:

Pete best a baker became

Best became a baker earning
£8 a week and marrying
a girl named Kathy who worked
at the biscuit counter
at a Woolworth's store.
He later became
a civil servant. Whatever
his musical talent, personal
choices or notoriety, the fate of
his musical career was little
different from that of many
Liverpudlian musicians
whose stars faded
as musical trends changed.
