: I posted on a messageboard about how sloppy a certain bassist was in a band, and everyone flamed me, saying "but they're in a big rock band and you're sitting at home drooling over them." They obviously think that fame grants you talent..I'm pissed..wahhh
: ohh, the smell of the luthite is giving me a headache!! ;)
Everyone can say what they want about Ringo Starr, but he kept great time, allowed the guitar and vocals to be heard, did not over play paul, and he was
perfect for the best band ever, The Beatles could have hired any drummer they wanted to, they knew what they had in Ringo. I've played with double bass "monsters" (in their own mind) give me a Ringo anyday, and I've been around a long ,long time. the worst thing a band can have, is a loud drummer.
