I wonder if the girl with the mic at 5:44 could hear any of The Beatles music on her recording. I wonder if she still has the recording.  

Quite possible. Question is, what percentage of it would be drowned out by the screaming? =)

If she does still have it it probably has no audible Beatles, and sounds like being on the tarmac as a plane is taking off. I heard that the decibel level of the screaming was even greater than that of a jet engine. beatlemaniacs_02_gifa-hard-days-night-ringo-10

She might appear in the Live documentary and we get to hear the tape whilst everyone talks over it.

I can get behind this list. I have a weak spot for drummerboys.

Lolz. So what? I don't see 100% technical perfection as a requirement for or a sign of pure musical talent.

Music is emotion. Music is feeling. Ringo "feels" the music. And it works. heart

In a recent interview, Ringo lamented the breakup of The Beatles. http://uproxx.com/movies/judd-.....stbusters/

"...we were trying to get him to talk about how, sometimes, when bands break up it’s good because different members get to be really creative and have more control over what they do. And I said, “ ‘Did you ever feel that way?’ ” And he said, “ ‘No, The Beatles breaking up was a huge mistake. We never should have done it!’ ”

I appreciate Ringo's appreciation of The Beatles.

Today being Ringo Appreciation Day, I'm appreciating Richy with all my might! beatlemaniacs_02_gif

First of all, I must share some love for his grin (which I'm currently rendering on paper). Ringo has always reminded me of a sad Walrus (especially with the mustache)

but when he smiles, he is transformed into the happiest person on the planet, and you can't help but smile with him!

I also appreciate his appreciation of the Beatles. He really loves those lads. heart

I like Ringo as a drummer, but I like him as a person even more. He's a real class act and seems like a really nice guy. 

Respect.Image Enlarger

Happy Birthday , Ringo.

Yes, Ringo is an inspiration. He reminds me to be happy and to not make my life too complicated.

I bashed around on my bandmate's kit today, and I have gained an enormous new appreciation for anyone who can drum at all, let alone well. And Ringo could play and sing?! heart

 I'd second this. I have a great respect for anyone who can play drums, let alone play drums well. I'm a pretty lousy drummer.

I'm afraid of the noise that would result from me trying an actual drum kit. Many kudos to Ringo for being able to multitask like a Bawwssss. Amidst screaming crowds, flying jelly bean bullets, shaky drum stands, not to mention his mic was at the wrong volume, then again the crowd was probably impossible to gauge.....I can't even carry on a coherent conversation while playing Rock Band on any instrument, without lapsing into what would resemble dyslexic Tourette's syndrome most of the time. And Rock Band got nothing on the real deal.

BTW, would that invisible person please quit hitting him in the left shoulder? Haha. ;P

He also got kinda "attached" to his stool at the end. Oops...

I love to hear Ringo tell this story.

http://www.musictimes.com/arti.....ignore.htm

"Coming to America, was a most incredible moment in my life," he told Fox News. "We landed in New York. All the music I loved came from America, and we were weeks before like unknown, and we were worried. 'Well they don't know us there. They knew us in Denmark. They knew us in England. They knew us in Spain.'"

I not sure about this sentence from the article though.

"At 76 years old, Starr surely has gone a long way from being a founding member of one of the most influential bands in the world." The Beatles really "became" "The Beatles" when Ringo joined them, but I'm not sure about calling him a founding member. Comments? Thoughts?

He wasn't. More lazy journalism. 

There is a Ringo quote out there where he says he was the last the join. Or they could take 3 seconds and just look it up on wiki or Joe's site.

Loving all the silly pictures in the booklets that come with the "Live At The BBC " CDs. Looks like Ringo and co. had so much fun back then.

I remember someone making a remark about Ringo's drumkit at the Nashville show at the Ryman in June. Seeing it in person, he mentioned how it's not quite so big. Come to think of it, next to Greg Bissonette's, it was a definitely a bit smaller. Indeed, I thought: "Awwwww look at it..."

Up until today I had only heard a couple of Ringo's solo songs, but today I bought his Blast From Your Past LP on vinyl.  I really, really liked it!  The only songs I had heard before were It Don't Come Easy, Photograph, and I'm The Greatest, but I honestly really liked every song on there. You already knew this, but Ringo is awesome!ahdn_ringo_09a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Indeed - glad to have another 'convert' on board 😉

There is a lot of love here for Early 1970 amongst others on that album.
