Ringo Took The Drummer's Seat

If you like rock music, then this date is certainly meaningful to you...on August 16, 1962, The Beatles (actually their manager, Brian Epstein) fired drummer Pete Best and replaced him with the so-called "human drum machine", Ringo Starr. Regardless, of what sort of rock you enjoy, to a great extent it exists because of this timely substitution of drummers. Thanks, Brian, for having the guts to do what none of The Beatles were able to bring themselves to do.
