37108751-24163511.jpgBeatles Former Road Manager Dies: Neil Aspinall dies at the age of 66. His was a short life, but clearly one lived large:

Aspinall also went down in Beatles history as the man who stayed with the group even after manager Brian Epstein fired Aspinall’s closest friend, drummer Pete Best, when Lennon, McCartney and Harrison decided they wanted crosstown rival Ringo Starr on the drums. It was a particularly trying time for Aspinall because he was renting a room at Best’s house and had become romantically involved with Best’s mother, Mona, who was 17 years older than Aspinall. Their long-term affair produced a child, Vincent Roag Best, who was about 3 weeks old when Pete Best was booted from the group.
