    Liverpool, England is the hometown of all of The Beatles: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. Original drummer Pete Best also hails from the region and the local city council is considering honoring him as well, by naming a street after him, due to his "special contribution" to the city's musical heritage. The council will make a decision in the coming weeks.

    What do you think of Liverpool's desire to honor Pete Best?
