Default The eight Beatles...

Who are the eight people who can legitimately claim to being Beatles...I'll give you four of them--John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.

You got Best and Sutcliffe, but the other two were not Sheridan and Evans.

Jimmy Nicol is another one, but I think Hanton was a Quarryman or Silver Beatle and never a Beatle.

I'm guessing it's Chas Newby, who was their bassist for a while.

It is Chas Newby was was a bona fide Beatles for about two weeks.
But Jimmy Nicol was never one of The Beatles, he deputised for Ringo, but he wasn't 'a Beatle'.
Wasn't Johnny Hutchinson actually paid by Epstein to play with the Beatles while Ringo was unavailable? He's got as much right to be a Beatle as Jimmy Nicol.

Murray the K has been referred to as "The 5th Beatle". (Even though I like to think that I'm the 5th Beatle.)

Ken Brown is another. So is Johnny Hutch who sat in on drums back in the pre-Ringo days. Then there was Colin Hanton.

As for being called the FIFTH Beatle - everybody and his Ford Falcon were jockying for that title in 1964 and Murray the K couldn't carry a tune in one!

First uttered I don't know, but first printed in early in 1962 in 'Mersey Beat' newspaper, in regard to Stu Sutcliffe.

George Martin PLAYED more on albums than those recent mentions played live, no? Martin's Harpsichord solo, etc. - not to mention creative additions in the studio which were numerous.

How about Tommy Moore who played drums for them? I like his playing and voice on 'Boys' better than Ringo's.

Not posing this as a guess, but as opinion: Goerge Martin !

Beyond his "dircetion", other than "the other four", no one played on more Baetle tracks and he also helped fashion many of them via suggestions, imput and "translating" into music some of their ideas.
