What do people Think of Paul's drumming abilities? I think he is good not great, but I Definitely think Ringo is the best drummer

I just don't think that it would be the same without Ringo as the drummer.

I don't think Paul is a very good drummer.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I think Paul is a pretty good drummer, like in Dear Prudence and Back In The USSR, but it wouldn't be the same without Ringo

This. Ringo's character is unmatched as a drummer.
You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

There is a bit of a debate on the songs page on Dear Prudence because of those fills at the end of the song, which were above and beyond anything Paul ever really did. Legend says it was him, but it really sounds like Ringo. I think it's impressive that Paul is talented enough to be a competent drummer, but that's about the extent of his skill. I was surprised to learn that Paul did all of the drumming on Band on the Run because I've always really liked the drumming on that album.

I'm not quite sure about the end of Dear Prudence. If you listen to the vocal track from the rock band tracks then you can tell that there are some other drums in the background, which probably means that the fills on top were overdubbed; but that could be Paul or Ringo.
