    It's a bit sad to watch this one because of George and John, but it reminds us as time passes life's not so sad after all.

    Ringo should not be discounted musically.

    Ringo's All Starr Bands have been superb, including such as Jack Bruce, Joe Walsh, Peter Frampton, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, on and on...

    Ringo's solo album was great. I am keeping my eye out for an LP copy to add to the collection.

    Thanks.
    I still enjoy that song, and that album.

    I've seen his All Starr Band twice now.....and am ready for another as soon as he comes around. Ringo himself seems like a great guy, and watching other artists serve as (amazing) backup musicians for their fellow performers is just inspiring. Possibly the GREATEST "cover" band EVER!!!!!! ;)

    I had the pleasure of meeting him and shaking his hand after his All Starr Band played the Hammersmith Odeon in 1992. The show was fab. I was working for a backline company and was tasked to go to the venue to pick up some mics and a cheque, I was told by the boss NOT to go to the backstage party even though I had an all access pass. Anyway...I thought bo****ks to that and went. I passed him just outside the 'green room' told him I loved the show and we shook hands and he said 'thank you'. I then stopped shaking and went to the 'green room'...had a beer or two...shook hands with Joe Walsh and Dave Edmonds...left and went to the works van which I had parked round the corner...and found it had been broken into. I couldn't call the police as I'd had one beer too many (naughty I know)...drove back to the yard. Following morning the boss had calls from the police who'd reported the break in anyway and I got sacked !!! Well worth it though !

    PS. I'd met George earlier in the year rehearsing in Bray studios Windsor....yes I know you're all jealous :)

    In my opinion, Photograph and It Don't Come Easy are as good as anything that any ex Beatle released after their demise.

    I finally got to see Ringo this past summer, the entire band was great...I just regret not seeing him a few years back with Rick Derringer and Edgar Winter. I will say this...Ringo played drums almost the entire show, and of course sang almost every song. His stamina for an old guy was amazing, I expected him to look bad, but he looked really good! Go Ringo!

    Ringo really does seem to be a thoroughly decent person who manages to combine massive accomplishment with a light, funny touch. You don't see that combination often, in any area of life. And I hope not to incite another flame war by saying that for me, in my own individual opinion, just for myself, don't slaughter me, his drumming is musical, human, swinging, and beautiful in a way that is freaking fantastic and unique.

    "I was told by the boss NOT to go to the backstage party even though I had an all access pass." - Great story but that's my favorite part.

    ringo explained his swing and being off beat was bec he was left handed tryin to play a right hand kit. he had to play everything backwards and it took him a beat to get his left hand back across the set. said he wasnt a genius he was just left handed trying to play drums backwards :)

    Yep, and right-handed drummers have been cursing under their breath for decades trying to play his parts authentically.
