The interviewer, Peter Mansbridge, is very well known and respected in Canada as a newsman, broadcaster and interviewer.....but he seems a bit starstruck (Starr struck?) in this interview...a bit off balance. I would be too talking to one of The Beatles.
He still makes me smile
"If I needed money, I wouldn't be going to Canada!"
I didn't hear any "sobering reality" about who was best or "king of the hill".
I've got the book on order. Great interview. Thanks for posting this!
That band sounds cool !
I’ll definitely check them out .
I love Ringo, his bands, and Canada.
Thanks for listening.
I've seen Ringo's All Starr Band twice now, and will again if the opportunity arises. He either sincerely loves entertaining people, or fakes it better than a $1000 call girl.....but IT DOESN'T MATTER......
He seems very authentic, and doesn't have to prove a thing to anyone, but I think I see what the other Beatles saw in him, and why they wanted him in the band.....and I'm grateful they did.
I love Ringo and he had an unusual and good style for the Beatles. Still, I believe they would have been what they were with any decent drummer. Decisions were made in the invention process and studio on what the song should be. JMHO
I like Ringo, I think he made a great contribution to the Beatles.
But the notion that he is the factor that drove the band to reach such heights is absurd.
Yes yes and yes.
I love Ringo and everything about him but as others have said, they would have reached the same heights with Mick Avory or Chris Slade or Ian Paice or any number of good English drummers.
That’s like all the numbskulls who say that the period when Mick Taylor was in the Stones produced such great music because Mick Taylor was in the Stones.
Why do we always have to go there. Is there some satisfaction derived by repeatedly saying Ringo isn't the best drummer in the world. Should the Beatles have hired Buddy Rich?
For the Beatles to become the band that they did in all their glory they needed all four parts. Each member was crucial to their success. Remove one part and you may have something but it wouldn't be the Beatles.
I didn't say he wasn't a good drummer, or that the Beatles needed someone else.
But let's be honest, the driving force behind the Beatles was Lennon and McCartney.
Ringo is a great drummer.
But let’s put it a different way - the Beatles would’ve succeeded even if they had a bad drummer.
Some of their songs might’ve had a different feel, but the vast majority of their best material wouldn’t have been ruined even if Alex Van Halen was on the throne...
Met one of those once...
I looked her over and said...NAHHHH.
The Beatles, for all their individual talents, is a great example of a band whose sum was greater than its parts.
