Ringo in concert today

I don't mean to wail on the old guy, and this is hearsay (albeit very reliable), but:
My brother went to see Ringo and his All Starr Band in Sydney earlier this year and came away a little...

True, Nikki.
I suppose this raises the question: when does a riff or fill become a solo. I'd rate those two bars as a fill, but you're right--they are being showcased and no other instruments are...

The other drum solo

It's widely said that "The End" features the only drum solo by Ringo Starr with the Beatles.

Beatles rule!
