It wasn't Ringo, but Pete Best who was the penultimate drummer of the Beatles. Just saying.
I don't know what penultimate means but I'll take your word for it.
It means next to the last.
Well why didn't he just say that then? OP is a vocab show off!
I thought it was Top Topham?
I thought it was John "Stumpy" Pepys. Or was it Eric "Stumpy Joe" Childs. No wait, it was Peter "James" Bond. Or was it Mick Shrimpton. And what about Joe "Mama" Besser?
Cool song, but I'm thinking Ringo is a better drummer.
RIngo's solo stuff is cool too.
Like them both.
No, that would be using "propreantepenultimate" (pro-pre-ante-pen-ultimate) -- fifth from last
How would you like to live with that for the last 60+ years? I could have been a Beatle!
Of course, then you might also ask who was the penultimate (or, in this case, first) bass player for the Beatles.
(Stu Sutcliffe of course)
"Just saying?" ZZZzzz
Blowtorch's favorite Beatle !
What about Ian Stewart, piano player with the Rolling Stones?
Seems that he was given the heave-ho because he didn't look like the rest of them. Except he died two decades later.
Pete is a Beatle.
Oh yeah, you're right. I forgot about that.
What about Billy Preston.
I would consider Billy to be the fifth Beatle.
Poor Jimmy Nicol. Forgotten again.
Pretty sure he's lived a pretty mean and disgruntled life from the tiny bit I've read about him, and interviews he's done. I'd be pretty resentful too, so I don't blame him.
In the George Martin biography, the point was made that Pete was not a good drummer. After their first demo was made, Martin and the engineer planned to replace Best for another demo because he couldn't keep good time in addition to lackluster drumming. Pete Best was destined to be replaced, it seems.
