Of course, what people forget about Ringo is that it's not HOW he played, but WHAT he played. He litterally put the BEAT in the Beatles and if the Beatles didn't have that infectious beat, I'd be scared to think where music would be.
Bottom line: Ringo rocks. :)
Nicely put. He was no where near as good of a drummer as John Bonham or Keith Moon. He's also not even close to being as good of a drummer than his son. With that being said his style fit the bad perfectly.
Ringo is cool in my book.
