Question Extra band members

One year before Ringo joined the Beatles, the boys played one concert with an extra member playing bass. Who was this extra member?

Chas Newby went back to college, and Paul took up the bass. The rest is rock n roll history.

On 31 December 1960 arise the Beatles in the Liverpooler Casbah Coffee club. It is the fourth and last mark that with them the bassist Chas Newby plays.

Exclamation

First, I want to point out that 4 posts by AnyRoad69 and the two points by beatlemad have lead to having both of them disqualified. The rules clearly state that you can only post ONCE before the moderator returns. You all must follow these rules.

Secondly, I want to point out that Stu had died months before this one concert happened. I don't see how he could have been there.

Next, Chas was a member of the Blackjacks with Ken Brown and Pete Best, roughly a year before the lone concert happened.

Now back to the question at hand. One year before Ringo joined, who was the bassist that played one concert with John, Paul, George and Pete?

Berkat, contradicts itself however?


Stu died April 62
Ringo joined the Band August 1962

Arrow

Now that everyone understands the rules, remember not to post at all if you are disqualified.

I am still looking for the correct answer. I did mistakenly post that Stu was already dead when this lone concert took place. He was very much alive and living in Hamburg with Astrid. He had already left the group.

The key phrase here is "one year before Ringo joined". The person that joined the Beatles this one night was already on the bill with another group.

Talking

One_Sweet_Dream has finally come up with the correct answer. Johnny Gustafson was a member of the Big Three, which were on the same billing as the Beatles on Aug. 17, 1961. This was one year and one day before Ringo officially became a Beatle.

This concert was held at St. John's Hall, Tuebrook, Liverpool. Gustafson played bass.
