So because Ringos performance is DIFFERENT than yours,his was some how LACKING? Not just different....and totally original?

So no credit for actually coming up with the drum parts to an original song,and having to please three of the biggest celebrity musicians in the world,not to mention some of the most critical perfectionists in McCartney and producer,George Martin.

The ground work was already done.That's the hard part.

Nice one Tad.

That is the whole crux of being a musician, coming up with the part in the first instance. Its ok guys saying, I can play that, that's easy.....but they did not have the nouse to come up with it as an original piece.

As Stewart Copeland said: "Slavish devotion to copying and emulation is the death of musical creativity. .’ That whole thing of replicating what others do is a siren call. The sirens lure you to the rocks of unoriginality."
