The Beatles’ original drummer Pete Best has invited Sir Paul McCartney to break his 40 years of silence and get in touch.

Best was famously sacked in favour of Ringo Starr just before the Fab Four hit the big time, but the 65-year-old says he’d like to finally speak to Paul again for the first time since he was booted out of the band.

He explains to the Mail, “We're not getting any younger. We know what we've done and we're not going to think any worse of each other if we had a chat now. God bless us all: it was all 40-odd years ago."
