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'm also ewe2 on weekends.

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.

I read a story years ago (probably the 80s or 90s) quoting Paul saying that after he put out Band On The Run , some time in the 70s, he was talking to Keith Moon, and Keith said (to paraphrase) "whoever you got to drum on Band On The Run was good!"  Paul told him it was him, and Keith was surprised.  I like Paul's drumming style, the way he uses tom-toms.  Also, he seems to have a good sense of the cool sound of the ride cymbal at key points (e.g., when it comes in during the "woo woo woo woo" parts of "Every Night " -- from the first album, another one where he did all the drumming).

That's my favourite  album by Paul. He plays every instrument on it, not just the drums. The last song on that album, Kreen Akrore is strange and beautiful. I used to think it was him, expressing the madness and bad feeling he was escaping with the Beatles at that time. It feels like he is  running, then finally stopping, to breathe and feel free. Then I learned that it was based on a documentary he had watched about an Amazonian tribe of that name and refers to hunting. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

I read that about Keith Moon too. Although listening to Moon's drumming on Love reign o'er Me  from the Quadrophenia album, you would have to say, he was being pretty generous.

Admittedly ,Paul does a good job on the McCartney album but, although rhythmic, he drums in a sort of "crash bang wallop" fashion and sounds like a bass player. However, and in true Stevie Wonder fashion, why go to the effort of asking someone else to do something you can easily do yourself...

Paul sort of did a reprise of "Kreen-Akrore" with a song on Red Rose Speedway that to me has a similar vibe, "Loup (1st Indian on the Moon)"

Paul is an above average drummer and when he plays within himself, he's very good. But Ringo has that feel and groove that is his and his alone. His fills are quirky, too, but a lot more complicated than they sound at first (you really need to dig beneath the surface, but once you try to play Ringo's fills you realize there's a lot going on there).

Haha, that's spot on! Perhaps it's just the rather primitive recording/mixing on that album, though, because I do think his BOTR drumming is good, and quite seamless.

But at the end of the day, Paul plays drums like someone who plays drums... he doesn't play drums like a drummer. a-hard-days-night-john-6 I think there's a certain feel and ease of rhythm that Actual Drummers have, that People Who Play Drums in addition to their main instruments don't.

Good points Silly Girl.  I agree about BOTR -- if you think of some of the songs, like "My Love", he's not banging around all over the place like a little kid, the drumming is quite professional.  Then for the more upbeat "Get on the Right Thing" he's drumming quite dynamically but not like a monkey.  His tom-tom work on the title track I quite like, the way he does so many rolls & frills, and no doubt he scrupulously engineered their sound (along with the bass drum) to get that certain bouncy yet deadened sound.

Paul didn't drum on either of those songs (Denny Seiwell drummed on both), and neither of them were on BOTR (both were on Red Rose Speedway , although "Get On the Right Thing" was recorded during the RAM sessions)

Woops -- you're right!  And I can't blame the drugs like Paul and Ringo can (unless one counts a Pinot Noir)!

"although "Get On the Right Thing" was recorded during the RAM sessions) "

Woah!  I didn't know that -- that's surprising, somehow...
