Stuart Sutcliffe, the Beatle who died young, left just one recording of his voice.

.
All of us we know all the 4 Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, but what most of the people don't know, is that excluding Pete Best (Drummer before Ringo) was another member who died quiet young.

That member was Stuart Sutcliffe, John Lennon's best friend and College mate. He was a Scottish boy who joined the band in the early times and stayed until he quit to pursuit his artist career as a painter in Hamburg, where he met his girlfriend Astrid Kirchherr, the person who created the Beatles hair cut.

He wasn't a really good bass player and he use to play showing his back to the public so they couldn't notice his lack of skills, but definitely he had a beautiful voice.

He died in Hamburg in an Art Class just after the success of the Beatles, due to an aneurysm caused by a fight after a Beatles concert.

In the picture of Sgt Peppers Lonely Hart Club Band, you can see all the people that the Beatles admired at their back, and you can see Stuart Sutcliffe between them persons.

Despite he use to sing lots of songs during the concerts, there is just one record of his voice covering "Love me tender" from Elvis Presley.

Before it was so easy to get, but it has been deleted from everywhere due to rights. I managed to find the last link that makes public his voice almost 55 years after.

After the release, lots of people and "experts" came to internet to say that it wasn't him, but both of his sisters confirmed that this was his real voice. Enjoy
