(Damn u2 that makes me write Plastic Bono and then I'm like  a-hard-days-night-paul-1 and I go back to delete the b)

 

I got this album and there was something about it I couldn't really identify. There's something truly strong in this music that's not only John's voice and lyrics.. until I noticed I caught myself tapping a pencil at the rhytm of the drums in Well Well Well and then I was "The drums!!". I wasn't sure it was Ringo but I checked the album and yes, it's him.

 

Genius. I love it.  a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

Yeah, he is one of the more characteristic drummers, with the backwards fills etc. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

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.

Oh. My. Gosh. 

The "Plastic Bono" thing made me laugh out loud. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Something similar happened to me. Throughout the whole album I kept thinking "who is that on Tea & Sympathy"?

Then I checked the credits – it's Mal Evans! mal-evans

I'd be willing to wager the tea was perfectly brewed and the sympathy was genuinely heart-felt.apple01

I absolutely love Ringo's drums!

In fact, sometimes, when I'm listening Rubber Soul/Revolver, I can't help but listen to the drums (and percussion) only. My brother, who is a drummer, and me think that if you could isolate the drums from every Beatles' songs, you can identify them from the percussion pattern.

 

OFF TOPIC: mithveaen: you make me remember I can't go to U2 this time, they're playing in La Plata (a little too far away from my home) and the tickets are too expensive!

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

Marcelo, you have made a point that has rarely ever been made but which I think is very telling.

I have little doubt that if you played only the drum tracks from any Beatle song I could identify that song – and I think most hard core Beatle fans could identify the song.

I cannot think of any band that could even make such a claim. And it is a testimony to the absoulte character of Ringo's playing.

Well said Marcelo!

I'm doing that next time I sit down to listen the double RS/R.
 

And Marcel I'm so sorry!! The tickets sure are way too expensive!! U2 is also coming to Mexico and I got the third cheapest seat and it was almost as expensive as Macca's most expensive ticket! I asked for a loan to my sister and I paid it with my Christmas bonus!

This remains one of the most powerful and unique performances by a three-piece rock and roll band on record and Ringo's drumming is a major factor.  More proof that the ostensibly happy go lucky Beatle could get as heavy as anyone.  A devastating statement from the first to the last song.a-hard-days-night-ringo-9a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

I don't want to argue – seems like I'm always doing that, Robert, without trying to! – but I'd say that John Bonham and Elvin Jones had styles that were pretty instantly recognizable.

As for Ringo's playing on Plastic Ono Band, and the Lennon-Starr-Voorman trio in general, it's interesting to compare it to the playing on Yoko's (more frequently rocking) companion LP. Too bad there's no Rock Band-style multitracks of that  stuff going around to give the detractors the option of a Yoko-less listen…

I think what is obvoius, is that without even trying, Ringo becomes the standard against which other drummers are measured. Even people who don't like Ringo's playing invariably wind up comparing their favorite drummer to him. I think that's the point.

I don't there's many people comparing John Bonham to say Charlie Watts. Or Charile Watts to Elvin Jones. Everyone compares everyone else to Ringo. Now don't argue with me – just don't!!!

Wouldn't think of arguing, Robert!

I'll just add that part of what makes Ringo the frequent comparison-standard is not merely his being a great drummer, but being a great drummer in the world's most famous and popular band, as well as a larger-than-life personality on his own. (By comparison, Charlie Watts is a total cipher.)  But you knew that already.
