Ringo was simply more adequate. When comparing bad pizza to adequate pizza, the latter will win. Had they searched Yelp for actually good pizza we might be having a different discussion.
Hm.... name a better rock/pop-drummer that was available during the time from 1960 to 1963. I am interested in your answer.

Ringo could play, according to fellow musicians and sound-engineers, take after take with the same bpm without even using a metronome, that was perhaps his biggest strength. And it was one of best things that could happen to a band that had to record lots of songs in an era, where you did not have all the technical options that you have today. Sound engineers apparently loved that ability that Ringo brought to the rink a lot. If you think that what Ringo and his peers did in the 1960's was easy made stuff, just take a look at this bbc-documentary.
Modern musicians trying to nail it with 1960's studio-technology. Some of the bands ran into massive problems during the recording sessions. ;-)
