I remember sharing that on social media and was taken to task because there weren't any women drummers in the clip, which is why I love social media.

Women drummers are rare though. I can only think of White Stripes drummer and the one who filled in for Motley Crue for a couple of years that Tommy Lee wasn't in the band. Maybe throw in the one from Haim as well. I don't know their names off the top of my head.

Sheila E is such a great drummer who happens to be a woman.  She's toured with the All-Starr Band at least twice, probably more.  Worships Ringo's style. I've never read an interview with her, where the subject of Ringo Starr came up, that she didn't have anything but highest admiration for how he plays the drums.

/Happy Birthday Ringo!

I bought tickets to see Ringo in Pittsburgh 2 1/2 years ago for my kids and myself for Christmas.  Postponed twice for covid.  The show was supposed to be June 18th (which would then have been followed immediately by fathers day and my birthday) but was postponed again for Luke and Edgar having covid.

Damn thing gets rescheduled for September 10.  September 10.

...when I'll be in Toronto seeing Porcupine Tree.  You're kill me, Smalls.  KILLIN me.

He hadn't written it yet. That came out of the Let It Be/Get Back sessions and wound up on Abbey Road.

I always liked how he took the time to write Marge a very thoughtful reply.

When I watched Get Back earlier this year, I was impressed with just how professional he was.   He has the reputation of being something of a cutup but when it came time to do his job, he was there to work.

I remember going to his birthday celebration in front of Capitol Records a few years ago. He ran up and down the length of the crowd flashing to peace sign and handing out cupcakes with his face on them. It was awesome.
