Mitch Benn Is The 37th Beatle

Mitch Benn is the 37th Beatle...or Ringo Was Nearly My Dad…or...Pete Best Found My Snake

Over the years, many people have claimed the title "The Fifth Beatle". They can't all be right but some of them have been a lot righter than others.

Mitch Benn was born in Liverpool in January 1970. Three months later the Beatles broke up. COINCIDENCE??? Yes.

In this 50th anniversary year of the release of Please Please Me, ‘the country's leading musical satirist’ (The Times) explores the Fab Four's enduring legacy and shamelessly milks his own (incredibly tenuous) connection to it.
