Another In His Own Write story "Randolf's Party" is also thought to be about someone John knew.

Who is it, when does the story take place and why is this date important for the person concerned?

Two points for the full answer.

Does John even know who he wrote it about?

I guess it was about Brian Epstein, taking place during Christmas time. Why is it important? I don't know. Jewish people don't usually celebrate Christmas. So, this person would be alone on the holiday.

I think John probably knew exactly who he was talking about.

And no it wasn't Brian Epstein.

Was it his father? It was Chritmas time, not necessarily Christmas Day. His father was born in December.

zipp Aug 08, 2014 10:33 AM

No, not his father.

Pete Best's full name is Randolph Peter Best. Could the Christmas corallation he was given a new kit for Chritmas just prior to joining the Beatles?

Good answer, Colonel Angus. I forgot that Pete had a Randolph in there somewhere.

Zipp, survey says?

zipp Aug 09, 2014 12:49 AM

Zipp says that's two thirds of the right answer.

johncharles Aug 09, 2014 10:11 AM

It's about Pete Best. Born Randolph Peter Best. It takes place during Christmas. This date/holiday is important to Pete because it's when his dad left.

zipp Aug 09, 2014 03:27 PM

Nope. Pete's dad didn't leave. He was killed in the war.

You're loooking for something concerning his mother and step-dad and step-brother and of course Pete himself.

Randolph Peter Best and his family arrived in Liverpool from India, on December 25, 1945.
