I Feel Fine- the drum part on this song is quite complicated, yet he stays steady on through.

Rain- I really like the fills he puts in this song, bouncing around between snare and tom(s)

Helter Skelter- his work on this song sounds almost heavy metal, with the loud, bashing rhythm (and the part at the end where he yells "I've got blisters on my fingers!")

Come Together- I like the parts before the verses where he circles from ride to hi-hat to toms and back again.

Here Comes the Sun- this is a rather complicated drum part that he again did perfectly. I believe the tempos change throughout the song.

Those are it for now. I could go on for a lot longer, but I won't. DON'T BASH RINGO! haha.
Seconded on I Feel Fine!!! One of my favorite Drum Ringo songs

I like it when Ringo, places a rag/towel on his rack tom to get that deep/low tone in some of the songs. Besides, "You Really Got A Hold On Me" is one of my favourite ones.

"Ringo is one of the greatest rock drummers. There were times when he’d get in the middle of a drum fill and not know how to get out, and that’s what made it great. -Kenn Scott

"Regarding Ringo's drums, this was the first time I was able to record his kit in stereo because we were using eight-track instead of four-track. Because of this, I had more mic inputs, so I could mic from underneath the toms, place more mics around the kit - the sound of his drums were finally captured in full.

"I think when he heard this, he kind of perked up and played more forcefully on the toms, and with more creativity."-Geoff Emerick on Abbey Road

"Ringo's tom fills really make the song, but funnily enough, he hated doing them because he could never remember what he was did one take to the next. I think that's why his fills are so spectacular - he felt that he would never reproduce them, so he'd better get 'em right." -Geoff Emerick on Here Comes The Sun

"And then, of course, we get to the famous parts of The End, the drum solo and the three-way guitar solos. The thing that always amused me was how much persuasion it took to get Ringo to play that solo. Usually, you have to try to talk drummers out of doing solos! [laughs] He didn't want to do it, but everybody said, 'No, no, it'll be fantastic!' So he gave in - and turned in a bloody marvelous performance! It took a while to get right, and I think Paul helped with some ideas, but it's fantastic. I always want to hear more - that's how good it is. It's so musical, it's not just a drummer going off." -Geoff Emerick on The End

Mike McCartney -- "There were quite a few drummers around Liverpool and I used to go home and tell Paul about Ringo. I often saw him play with Rory Storm. ...With Rory he was a very inventive drummer. He goes around the drums like crazy. He doesn't just hit them -- he invents sounds." (1983 interview for The Beatles: A Celebration by Geoffrey Guilliano, 1992)

One thing Ringo definitely deserves that he doesn't often get credited for is making drumming mainstream.

Sure, there were drummers before him, many of them more innovative but I'd love to see a statistic that shows just how many of the drummers of the 60's, 70's and 80's in particular started drumming because of Ringo Starr.

Even many of today's generation look up to him as an idol, I recall watching a movie not long ago called Love Actually here Liam Neesons kid wanted to be just like Ringo Starr and learn't drums in the movie. From working around kids in the past I can tell you, many kids like that still exist.

I've been listening to his drumming for years and loving that deep hollow kind of dead sound of his toms in some songs, and i just recently figured out how he did it, i love that sound more than anything.

Just rebrushed some Beatles Videos.

If you see, how Ringo holds the pace in this shuffle with the right lead and nails down the backbeat on the snare while singing during three minutes: not sure, if all these Ringo-ney-sayers can really do that too....i think it's great and very prof:

also jamming with Eric Clapton and Carl Perkins:

and giving some real pounding after 1:20 minute with Long Tall Sally - Swedish Television:

I was listening to some early Beatles the other day. I was always impressed with the energy they brought to those early shows. Then I realized, that energy was Ringo. He helped to make that band.

The video on these is great Bernard, thanks for that.

I've been playing for 40+ years after having been inspired by Ringo. I have an older sister who was one of those screaming teenage fans of the Beatles She turned me onto all of the 60's music.I actually remember the original Ed Sullivan performances. I just started a few months ago in a band laying mostly 60's covers. I walked into the local shop "Drums Etc in Lancaster PA about a month ago and fell for a Ludwig Fab-4 kit. They had it marked down new to $499 for the shell kit. Today I walked out with it thanks to my Wife and Daughter as a Father's day present. It doesn't make me any closer being as good as Ringo, but it will inspire me to improve. And I have to learn to play with one less tom now. Kind of funny I'm selling an English kit, a Premier to be more like my British drum hero. Spiney

As much as I love Paice's drumming. Ian Paice is also called - A Real Heavy Ringo, by Deep Purple's guitar player.

Bernhard - Thanks for those videos! Ringo's beat and feel are amazing, who dares to drum-battle Ringo?

Aside from his drumming for now, I think he was underrated as a singer. Ringo did not have a great range like John Lennon or Paul McCartney. BUT Ringo's voice was perfect for country/rockabilly music.

Just listen to these songs:

Beaucoups of Blues: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cnPbhGshWs

Love Don't Last Long: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFMU4lLQjjE

Act Naturally: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjmb30wI88A

Honey Don't: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fknPaGRNVpc

What Goes On: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BI-AgIMEMEQ

Don't Pass Me By: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsZjHeQRX-M

Not a country song, but a nice cover of I Call Your Name: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEKn9jBXibQ

I don't think he can sing well now, because he's almost 70. But back then, his voice was underrated.

Ringo and friends return to Niagara
Andrew Baulcomb
Jun 24, 2010

Forty years ago, Ringo Starr walked out of Abbey Road Studios for the last time as a member of the Beatles.

It was a dark time for the band, and a dark time for music lovers, but you'd never know it the way Starr (who turns 70 next month) still rolls through the classics with a smile on his face and a peace sign held high.

"I hope it's this full on Thursday," said the legendary Liverpudlian, showing off his trademark wit and boyish smile at a media event at Fallsview Casino yesterday.

Tonight is the first of two sold-out shows in the casino's 1,500-seat Avalon Ballroom for Starr and His All-Starr Band -- comprised of Rick Derringer (of The McCoys), Edgar Winter (Free Ride, Frankenstein), Richard Page (of Mr. Mister), Wally Palmar (of The Romantics), Gary Wright (Dream Weaver) and Gregg Bissonette (of Santana).

Starr's latest solo disc, Y Not, was released in January, and has already become his highest charting album since the mid-1970s.

The band is using the Avalon Ballroom as a warmup for their upcoming North American tour, which will hit 30 cities during the next two months.

Sharply dressed in a black leather jacket, black jeans and sunglasses, Starr led the band as it ripped through a brief selection of songs from the upcoming tour, including a number of old favourites.

"To keep you all happy, I'm going to do one from behind the drums now," said Starr, climbing behind the kit for a quick snippet of Boys -- a staple from the Beatles' early days.

Other tracks included The Other Side of Liverpool, a rollicking trip down memory lane from Y Not, and Starr's most famous track, the Lennon/McCartney-penned With a Little Help From My Friends.

This is the 11th incarnation of Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band, which originally formed in 1989 and released its first live album a year later.

"We're like a 1-800 band in a live setting," said Starr, relaxing on stage with his bandmates. "You have to have hits to get in, and you can't go wrong with guys like Edgar and Rick."

Past members have included Joe Walsh, Levon Helm, Burton Cummings, Peter Frampton and Jack Bruce of Cream, but Starr said he never gets tired of performing with new All-Starrs.

"It's always the same; we have a lot of fun and it's a great evening out."

Winter, who joined the band in 2006, said he was thrilled when Starr first invited him on-board.

"I was like, 'Wow, Ringo, yeah!' when I got the call," Winter said. "Ringo for life!"

Bissonette linked up with the All-Starrs in 2008, and said drumming alongside one of his idols is a thrill that can't be beat.

"I don't ever want to step on Ringo; he's my favourite drummer," he said. "To me, he's the greatest drummer in the world, and the reason I play the instrument is because of him."


Throughout the tour, fans can expect a number of non-Beatles hits from the other All-Starrs -- such as Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo, What I Like About You and Hang On Sloopy -- with Starr assuming his classic position behind the drum kit, right beside Bissonette.

With his 70th birthday less than two weeks away, Starr is asking that everybody flash a peace sign at noon on July 7 to help celebrate.

That night, the All-Starrs will play to a sold-out crowd at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan, not far from the Ed Sullivan Theatre where Starr and the Beatles made their television debut in America.

It's been a long, wild ride since those heady days, but how long can Starr keep it up?

"As long as I can hold these two sticks, I'll do it."

He's the greatest: Drummers praise Ringo
Bubbly Beatle coming to Bethel

By Steve Israel
Times Herald-Record
Published: 2:00 AM - 06/25/10
You know Ringo.

Lovable Ringo. Drummer for the Beatles. Singer of "Yellow Submarine," "With a Little Help From My Friends" and "Octopus's Garden."

Always flashing the peace sign. Always ready with the funny quip, like the time he was asked whether he liked topless bathing suits and he replied, "We've been wearing them for years."

Ringo will be playing those Beatles songs and his own hits, including "It Don't Come Easy" and "Photograph" Saturday at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, with the latest version of his All Starr Band, featuring rockers like Rick "Hang on Sloopy" Derringer.

Sometimes it seems as if we take lovable old Ringo for granted. But those in the know don't especially when it comes to the drumming that propelled classic tunes from "She Loves You" to "Hey Jude."

To preview his gig at the site of the 1969 Woodstock festival, we asked a wide array of percussionists and drummers for their take on Ringo the drummer and got some surprising answers.

Rob Affuso on Ringo
Rob Affuso of Ulster County, former drummer for Skid Row, currently leads Soul System: "Some of the stuff he did for the Beatles was absolutely perfect. As a young drummer (who worshipped Neil Peart of Rush), I didn't think he was the best who ever lived, but he played the perfect parts for the perfect band. And when I auditioned for Bon Jovi, I learned how important it was to play right in the pocket and on the groove, and that was Ringo."

Henry 'Pucho' Brown on Ringo
Henry "Pucho" Brown, Orange County percussionist who leads Pucho and the Latin Playboys and has backed greats such as Dizzy Gillespie: "He's in the pocket. He's no fantastic drummer, but while a lot of cats are all over the place, he stays in the pocket, keeping it going. He's tasty."

Gary Kvistad on Ringo
Gary Kvistad, Ulster County percussionist who plays with Steve Reich, leads his own group, Nexu, and founded and invented Woodstock Chimes: "Ringo has this rap for being a real simple drummer and showman, but he did a lot that was innovative, doing things other rock 'n' roll drummers didn't. He played the match grip, which means holding both sticks the same way, not the traditional two different grips. He used brushes on rock songs and mixed it up. He wasn't a soloist, but he was a really great drummer and still is."

Thurman Barker on Ringo
Thurman Barker, Jeffersonville, associate professor of music and director of jazz studies at Bard College, who's played with everyone from Marvin Gaye to Cecil Taylor: "Before joining the Beatles, he was a show band drummer. So he was always making musical adjustments from one group to another. So he brought a lot of musical experience to the band. Tempo changes, many different grooves and meter changes. Ringo could handle all of this. I believe part of the Beatles' success, as far as music and the band's sound, is because of Ringo's drumming."

Jimmy Sturr on Ringo
Jimmy Sturr, Orange County polka king, who plays drums at the end of his shows: "On what he does, he's great. I mean backing the Beatles on all those songs, he's excellent, or he wouldn't have stayed a Beatle all those years."

Steve Gadd on playing with Clapton, McCartney and his new band
A conversation with a drumming icon

Joe Bosso, Mon 5 Jul 2010, 7:00 pm BST

Your discography is so vast, there's no way to list even half of the artists you've worked with. However, I do want to ask you about playing with Paul McCartney, who's no slouch on the drums himself.

"In one way or another, the job is always the same: you try to come up with parts that are supportive of the music. When I worked with Paul, he didn't give me a lot of direction per se. There were a few times, I think, when I wasn't playing as big and loud or as energetic as he wanted, so I made whatever adjustments were necessary.

"Again, I try to listen to the song. If you can listen to the song and really visualize in your head what it needs to be, you can figure out the dynamics and the backbeat and everything else.

"I remember there was a lot of emotion in the air the first time I recorded with Paul. It was not too long after John Lennon had been shot, so as you can imagine, things were…it was heavy. The emotions that everybody was feeling, coupled with the beauty of our surroundings [the island of Montserrat, where George Martin operated AIR Studios], it all came out in the music. Oh, and Ringo Starr was there, too. I had played with him on one of his solo records, so we were old friends. It was great being around him; he's so inspiring."

What kind of musical dialogue do you have with somebody like Ringo? Even though he's one of the greatest drummers in rock 'n' roll history, he's very unlike you in that he doesn't read or write music, never studied theory…

"Yeah, I know what you mean. We had a great time together. See, Ringo comes from a different kind of school, and I find that totally exciting and challenging. How he does what he does…it's so different from what other drummers do. If somebody approaches music or their instrument in a way that's unique, I want to be around that person. To me, there's something to learn there."

That's the best vocal performance I've heard from Ringo. Nice find, BF.

I think this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBx_D42opkI) is Ringo's best vocal performance.

Well i feel Ringo is perfect for the beatles, but he is no Mitchell or Bonham for sure. Ive read that it took Ringo 15 hrs and over 100 takes to get the drums to Happiness is a warm gun. They said his problem was that he would only play in 4/4.

That's baloney. He played a lot in other than 4/4


This complicated song, which involved various different time signatures, (the 6/8 middle section was made more convoluted by Ringo continuing to drum in 4/4), took 15 hours and over 100 takes to nail. The first half of one take was combined with the second half of another to form the complete song.


One of the most salient musical features of the song is its frequent shifts in time signature. Beginning in 4/4 time, the song has one measure of 6/4 time for the line "She's well acquainted..." before changing back to 4/4 time for the next line ("The man in the crowd..."). It then uses a measure of 5/4 followed by a measure of 4/4 for the line "a soap impression of his wife which he ate and donated to the National Trust" . The subsequent guitar solo features a measure of 9/8 followed by two measures of 12/8. This pattern is repeated in the "I need a fix..." section. This gives way to alternating 9/8 and 10/8 measures in the "Mother Superior..." section before returning to 4/4 for the doo-wop style ending. The "When I hold you..." section slows down dramatically and employs one of the few examples of polyrhythm in the Beatles' repertoire: the drums play a duple rhythm while the rest of the instruments and background vocals use a triplet rhythm.

He played as he was supposed to. More gossip from the
Ringo haters. Good lord. You only wish.
