Default Re: Pete Best - His Weaknesses as a Drummer?

I agree with the basic assessment that Ringo was simply more solid, could bring great energy, was more versatile, and swung. Knew what to do and when to do it.

If you listen to Pete's version of Til There Was You, he plays a straight beat...Ringo plays a little latin thing...Ringo could do things like the What I'd Say beat, or throw the latin rhythm in Chuck Berry's Rock and Roll Music...all around more musical and exciting and fit the Fab Four perfectly, musically and personality-wise.
