Colin Hanton

Colin Leo Hanton (born 12 December 1938, Walton Hospital, Walton, Liverpool, Merseyside) was a drummer for The Quarrymen—the band which would later evolve into The Beatles.

Hanton was in an early line-up of the band from c Summer 1956 along with John Lowe).

Hanton was working as an apprentice upholsterer when he was asked to join the nascent band, largely because he had recently purchased a new drum kit. Many of the band's early practice sessions took place in Hanton's parents' house. He left the Quarrymen after an argument with the rest of the band following a disastrous performance in Wavertree in early 1959.

In 1997, Hanton joined the revived Quarrymen with other original members Rod Davis and Len Garry.
