Inspired by the virtual trophy on the wall - I think it's time for an ongoing Ringo appreciation thread.  Even if I am the only one to contribute - hah - just kidding :)

I think we all know how often Ringo pops up on other projects; while he himself loved the company it is also obvious that he was a great contributor to anything he worked on; musically as well as helping create a great 'vibe' in the studio.  To get things going, let's take a look at a (very) few of the places he turns up post 1969:

  • With George; Bangladesh, All Things Must Pass, Shankar Family and Friends
  • With Paul; Broad Street, Flaming Pie
  • With John; Plastic Ono Band
  • With The Band; Last Waltz
  • With Carl Perkins; A Rockabilly Session
  • With Harry Nilsson; Pussy Cats
  • With ELO; Zoom
  • With almost everyone on his All-Starr tours

I'll add a few more from time to time, but please chime in with some Ringo spotting that builds the legend.  We have a thread elsewhere discussing a newspaper article suggesting it is time for a re-evaluation, I think the history shows his significance from day 1.

there's a very good book in italian, written by a friend of mine Help! by Vincenzo Oliva in wich all the records the Four played are accounted wonderfully. unluckily no edition in english is to be published. Ringo and george played as musicians in an incredible number of records, especially in the 70's

Yes, I get the impression the two of them felt the split more than Paul and John - they certainly added spark to a lot of the records of that time with some very interesting collaborations.

Okay, obviously the most well known are The Magic Christian and Caveman. 

But I just had to post this clip of Candy (1968). 

Ringo plays a horny Mexican in 'Candy' (NSFW!)

If you want to see Ringo talk about it on The Jonathan Ross show click Here. It starts at about 4:55. Includes a not as raunchy clip from Candy. (Btw I don't like Jonathan Ross)

And let's not forget his greatest role EVER

(I am SO sorry if some of these aren't available for you to watch! I don't know how to embed videos in the response. paul-mccartney)
