Ringo the Fourth is meant to be shit, i haven't heard but he's meant to have went with the music scene at the time and adopted a bit of disco. No wonder it did naff all in the charts and signalled a real low time in his life.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Do we need to highlight the music low points of Ringo's career tho? We haven't got one for either John, Paul or George and neither do i want one. Lets celebrate the good not bring up the bad (otherwise we will end up with another round of P.S. Love Me Do).

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Haha, I haven't heard that one in many years, it's pretty bad (and I personally really enjoy Disco!).  This late 70's-early 80's period of Ringo's is something that he himself would probably like back, even his interviews which had traditionally always been very entertaining were getting sad, his drinking was obviously preventing him from further growth musically and it's not much fun really to listen to, or watch for that matter:

 

 

I actually like that Ringo didn't take this interview all that serious for John Davidson set the tone himself early by mispronouncing "Paul McCarthey" during the introductions, where Ringo misses his cue to enter!  But it was no doubt a troubled decade for Ringo and it's no small wonder that his music released during this time is amongst the worst ever to be released by a Beatle.  Thankfully, Ringo took an extended break from recording during the 80's and got himself back on track for the 90's and started to make some good music again.  I'm most curious about the album that he never released which was recorded in the late eighties, sounds like Ringo was the one who blocked its release, he was quite happy to release 'Ringo The 4th' so it'd be interesting to hear what exactly he wasn't happy about  http://www.beatlesagain.com/br.....trngo.html  when you read about the people involved it sounds like it may not be half-bad, worse than 'Ringo The 4th'?...:-)

Thats a horrid video to watch, seeing Ringo so heavily pissed is deeply sad to witness. Its like watching a video back of one of your family at a deeply unhappy time of their lives.

Some of the songs from those unreleased mid-80's Memphis sessions have been booted, a couple are on youtube. None are at all inspiring and deserve to remain unofficially released.

I thought that 'I Can Help' wasn't too bad (if however unnecessary for the original's much better) but if 'You Better Move On' is any indication of what the rest of the album sounds like then, yeah, good call Ringo...:-)

I've never found I Can Help to be a decent song, always bores the pants of me and the guys vocals are so dreary. a-hard-days-night-paul-3 So that doesn't my liking of Ringo's, which as you say is a straight cover.

What's even sadder, is that this is the state which Ringo was in during the last summer while John Lennon was still alive.  I believe that 'The John Davidson Show' broadcasted out of New York City, and it's interesting that the date of this show here coincides with Lennon's return from Bermuda (Late July 1980) and it's quite possible that the two met up (as the boys often did when each other was in town) for what would be one of the very last times.  Lennon's death obviously hit Ringo very hard and to think that he'd carried on like this for about another 7-8 years after this TV Appearance while dealing with such a tragic loss must've been really rough.  I'd hate to see how things would've turned out for him had it not been for Barbara and his family's support, good on him for not only just "surviving" it, but using the experience as strength to return to his rightful place amongst the rock'n'roll elite, and that would be centre stage in sold-out venues around the world...:-)

Says a lot for the strength of Barbara and Ringo's marriage and love for each other that they both went to Betty Ford's (is that the right one?) when they knew they both needed helped, that it and they survived thru, and are going very strongly together. 

A heart-warming tale. heart

Thepicture of the Paul, George and their families at Ringo and Barbara's wedding is lovely. And there is no doubt that John would have attended.
