Very good. The only two heated incidents i can remember are when Ringo went to see Paul in 1970 to get a compromise regarding the Let It Be/McCartney album release dates which resulted in Paul threatening him, and when George sued Ringo over his recording of the song I'll Still Love (aka When Every Song Is Sung) on the 1976 LP Ringo's Rotogravure; it was settled out of court (there may be others).

John, Paul and George were all more than willing to help Ringo out with his albums (donating songs as well helping record them) and all of them had Ringo play drums on various albums.

And then you have Early 1970, a fantastic warm song Ringo released on the b-side of It Don't Come Easy which documents Ringo's want to play with and see the others.

You can see why Ringo was, in a way, the glue that held the Beatles together; where the other three could easily clash, he was constantly dependable and easy-going and the others all individually held firm friendships with him. There's a reason why all the other Beatles invited him back to work with them again after the split; they had great respect for him on both a personal and musical level. I think John and Ringo had a particularly strong relationship. It's beautiful to watch George helping Ringo compose Octopus's Garden in the Let It Be film. And I was moved very much by this moment in a transcript of an argument from the Get Back sessions, where Paul is talking to John about how the group's power structure has been changing:

PAUL: [inaudible] Let me tell you what I think. [pause; inaudible] thing is this. You have always been at the front of the chute. Now, there have been some secondary rungs, but George has been third rung—

RINGO: And I’ve been the cabbage.

PAUL: [immediately] Never.

Never heard that. I really don't know much about those sessions I guess. But I love that bit.

 

Like everyone else already said, he was just very friendly and easy-going. I don't think you'd get in a fight easily with him.
