It's very easy:
WITHOUT RINGO THERE WOULD BE NO DRUMMERWORLD
Thank you Mr. Starkey
Long long - very long - time ago - I picked up the sticks because of Ringo (and perhabs also because of Brian Bennett - Little B - Shadows)
It took some years - even after being pro for some time - then I discovered SG BR and GK.
I'm sure 100'000 drummers are getting better drummers studying Steve.....
But 5 Million picked up the sticks because of Ringo.
Not to speak about the Ludwig Drum Company who had to buy forests in Canada to make more drumsets. OK - quality went down, because the wood was not good - too fresh and not old enough, but that's another story. I'm proud of my 1964 - old - original - Ludwig Drum-Set..... also another story...
I wanted to play drums at a very young age, my two influences were John Bohnam and Mitch Mitchel
