Re: Ringo Starr
As a a musician I feel that I have to comment on the Ringo thread.
I used to be very much a "drummer", however, in the negative way. I cared more about practicing incredibadiddles than playing songs and at that time I was a Ringo basher. Now I have my own quartet where we are four songwriters and that has really opened my eyes, or ears, to what an amazing musician Ringo Starr really is. When playing with the Beatles he played songs or arrangements rather than grooves or beats, and in my opinion that is much more important. Ringo complimented the songs and played just what was needed to make beautiful music. Anyway, that was just my 2 cent.
