Ringo was nearly my dad ... or, 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.
