You have a point Paulrus.

 

Ok here comes one of my rants. It's not pointed to anybody, I'm just ranting.

 

I don't mind Pete Best trying to get his right place in the Beatles history. We can't erase that. Were John Paul and George pricks when they fired him? The hell yeah. But again, as George said, history has proved that they were right.

 

What It really pisses me off is why some people are willing to say Ringo was the lesser Beatle and he could have been replaced by Best? I'm not sure about Best's drumming (I have heard some of his songs with the Beatles and they sound okey to me) but for Christ's sake, if there's something that makes the Beatles songs strong is Ringo!!! He always plays well!!

 

I dunno if it's an actual quote but John said that when he plays he doesn't need to see where he's walking, because Ringo has the lead, or something like if he loses his way, he just needs to turn to Ringo and tada, he's back in track.

 

Yes, Paul and John were geniuses, yes George grew up as a writer to be at the side of Lennon/McCartney, but the fact that Ringo didn't write, it doesn't mean he was not a genius. In my opinion, and I'm sorry for saying this, but if we go to musician and instrument wise skills or whatever you call it, Ringo was at their level if better. Period.

 

How did I come to this conclusion? With this. Just listen to this. It's not Ringo, but this guy does a good job. We're talking about 1966. 45 freaking years ago.

Show me a song from that year or earlier with drumming like this, and then I can tell you that yeah, Ringo was replaceable. Again, Ringo was not a lesser Beatle. He was, sorry, he is a Beatle.

 

End of my rant. paul-mccartney Sorry. I had to take it out of my chest. Phew I feel better a-hard-days-night-ringo-9

I don't think that Pete Best was...fun enough. Ringo was hilarious.
