The "Fifth Beatle" Andy White, dies

Known as the "Fifth Beatle", Andy White has died at age 85. The Glasgow native only performed on single with the group, Love Me Do, but that was enough to earn him respect as the addition to the famous four.
  
As White mentioned before his passing, producer Ron Richards called him in 1962, offering a three hour session with record label EMI.
 
"That's all I knew about it. I had heard of The Beatles by then because my first wife Lynne was from Liverpool and had mentioned the name, but I didn't know much about them," he told Britain's Daily Record in a 2012 interview.
 
White also played on the B-side to the single, P.S. I Love You.
 
The drummer continued to perform as a session musician and also recorded It's Not Unusual with Tom Jones (who's coming to New Zealand - read about it here.)
