Lets face it, Ringo IS a rock 'n roll star, and we can't take that away from him.
I like Charlie Watts better, of all the bashed beloved Bernhard drummers on here. But Charlie doesn't have the rockstar persona that Ringo has. Not even the name!!
Yea, I agree with you. Charlie is uber cool! He might not be the best dummer in the world, but he is solid. My friend was in Muscat (Oman) last month at the Intercontintental Hotel for lunch and Charlie was at the table beside him.
That said, Ringo holds a special place in the hearts of drummers who grew up with the Fab Four. Peace and Love Ringo!
