Default Re: Ringo, smartest drummer ever?

Some reasons I love Ringo:
  • Let It Be
  • Come Together
  • A Day In The Life
  • Here Comes The Sun
  • Getting Better All the Time
  • Tomorrow Never Knows
  • Instant Amnesia (off Ringorama).

The smartest rock drummer? Hmm, I'd say Bill Bruford. Like Ringo he made a good living playing exactly what he wanted. So many great tracks - And You and I, Larks Tongues Pt 1, Starless, One More Red Nightmare, Frame By Frame, Thela Hun Ginjeet ... no jingles for that little black duck! The closest he came to that was the Yes reunion concerts :)
