Default Re: Who was the "Fifth Beatle"?

Stuart Sutcliffe

Stuart Fergusson Victor Sutcliffe (23 June 1940 – 10 April 1962) was the original bass player of The Beatles. He left to pursue a career as an artist. He earned praise for his paintings, which mostly explored a style related to abstract expressionism. As a member of the group when it was a five-piece band, Sutcliffe is one of several people sometimes referred to as "the fifth Beatle".

Sutcliffe and John Lennon are credited with coming up with the name for the Beatles
