She had two children already out of this body when this shot was taken. Yikes.

Love Ringo. While I dont agree with the first part of Lennon's quote about Ringo not being the best drummer but the perfect Beatle. I do agree that The Bealtes would never be the same without him. His songs were kid friendly as a way for the youngers to find the group musically like Yellow Submarine, A little help, and Octopuses Garden.  And he was the everyman face of the group with a charming get along with anyone personality. Everyone loves Ringo.

As far as his drumming I know he takes alot of guff about not being a great drummer. I totally disagree. He was a professional timekeeper. And his drumming on He said,she said tomorrow never knows and many others are amazing. He was not flashy but he did perfectly what drummers are supposed to do. Keep time.

Happy birthday Rings!

FTFY. A simple timekeeping role would have never worked for ELP or the 73-74 King Crimson or Yes in the early 70's, let alone for bands like the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return to Forever and so on. Just like there's more to bass playing than laying down root & 5th 8th notes.

40 quotes about Ringo's drumming

Buddy Rich called him "...adequate. No more than that" which is probably the best thing Buddy Rich ever said about another drummer

Nice to see some positive quotes about his drumming in there. I like his sound and don't really care whether it's technically proficient or not, and beyond which he despises drum solos- the tiny little bit of one he did in "The End" had to be forced out of him pretty much. Which makes him a candidate for best rock drummer of all time all by itself.

Bill Bruford or Phil Collins he ain't, but you can't argue that he's made quite a career out of being average.

   As a bass player as well as a songwriter I love that Ringo put the song first, that is the most important attribute for any musician. I am quick to ditch any musician who plays in an ensemble and only hears themselves. Playing compelling music is putting your ego aside and doing what is necessary to make a great song, that might mean simplifying your part to make space for someone else.

omg she's so creepy looking!

Ringo is the best living beatle.
If you get the chance to see Ringo Starr's All Star Tribute Band, do it.
Especially if you  like the other musicians, they all get to play their hits.

Buddy Rich told one guy "You could have been a good drummer."  (Note, not a GREAT drummer, like Buddy.)
The guy?  Mel Brooks.
