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.

Oh, and re ^ - it's apparent that Ringo is the 'goto guy' for so many people - I'm sure he didn't invite himself :)

The Doris Troy album -some of his best work, in my opinion. Doris had a lot of nice things to say about him, think she was taken aback by his performances?

Ah - nice find.

How about with the Manhattan Transfer in 1976 - played drums on one of their albums (Coming Out).  This guy gets around :)

Another interesting one, VERY interesting in fact.  I took a look at the personnel on that one, Klaus was there as well.  Kind of nice that they could still work together even after the split.

"When he drummed on my Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band album, I was totally amazed that he had no difficulty in following the very complex improvisational vocals I did – again, no overdubs."

If you've heard the album, you'll know what she means!

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.

Was any of this under cover names, as was the popular thing in the late 60's/70's? I knew Ringo and George had done a few things, but this sounds much much bigger.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele synthesizer penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele synthesizer penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.

I know George used a number of pseudonyms, not sure about Ringo.

What about all of the films he's been in? Or is it just records?

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)

^ I remember all the fuss when Candy came out!

And yes, that commercial is just classic.

They need to make a best (or worst?) of Ringo boxed film set!!

Great clips! Thanks for bringing them to the forum's attention.

As a side note, I never knew Pizza Hut had garlic dipping sauce.

Back when the Paul Appreciation Thread thread popped up I thought "Paul don't need a thread like this" since Paul is the most talked about Beatle on this forum.

 

Ringo meanwhile despite still being alive, is the least talked about and too many times when people are talking about the Beatles influence and dynamics, Ringo is left out. His Beatles songs are cast aside with a big chunk of the last 30 in the canon poll being Ringo songs.

 

This will be the thread for people to talk about the great Ringo Starr!
