correct me if i'm wrong, but i don't think white's drumming is even near lollipop...it's hard ass....maybe simple...but still, she does the trick....i think anyone could have replaced ringo and noone would have known the difference....white's asketic yet hard drumming is what makes the white stripess so great ( along with the amazing guitar work from mr. white of course )...oh, i don't think ringo's drumming was crap...i just think it's nothing special....

Ringo was a good drummer, he just gets slammed a lot because he's in a band with fricking John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison. :P

Yeah because we all know that every Beatles song is lolipop sh*t, just listen to Helter Skelter or I Want You (Shes So Heavy), those could have been Backstreet Boys songs.

Yeah. Thank God for Bob Dylan introducing them to the almighty dope.

I agree. Ringo played what the music needed, not some over-drumming bull**** like a lot of players tend to do.

since when has it been such an artform to it the drums hard? if your saying anyone can do ringo's job, then the same can be said for meg white. and this misconception you have of the beatles being lollipop is both ignorant and stupid, have a deeper understanding of a band before you go labelling their music, you only look foolish if you dont.

sheesh, a person can't even make half-assed, unbacked statements on this forum without being called out on it anymore. i suppose i'll have to get that sgt.peppers album everyone is talking about. but i just have a thing against the beatles i suppose. and fair enough, if ringo can be replaced, so can meg white, i never said she was a fantastic drummer, she doesn't have the muscle to be really great, i just think she has a specific style, one that any good drummer can undoubtedly immitate without breaking a sweat...probably even ringo.....i still don't think ringo was anything special...

boo boo; Helter Skelter is a superb example of Ringo's drumming abilities.
At the end of which Ringo can be heard to scream "I've got blisters on my fingers".
Another good example of his competence, 'Tomorrow Never Knows.'

Personally I believe Ringo was overlooked (due to the talents of the others) and was a far better drummer than he was given credit for.

Brilliant, no. Definitely above average.

adidasss...get the album and go suck a lollipop.

Moons style was much more intense and wild than it was complex, in fact he was rather sloppy at times, hes still one of the greatest.

On Ringo, i wouldnt call him great, but he is a good drummer dispite what anyone says, his drumming on Come Together for example, its so subtle but its brillant.

How could Ringo be categorized as a crap drummer? He never ****s up, he keeps the beat, and the music doesn't really call for anything else. I realize this is just me, but I never really listen to the Beatles and think, "Oh, Ringo should've played a nice, rolling fill there." I personally don't see how he can be criticised. Even if he doesn't play enough fills for someone's tastes, that doesn't make him a bad drummer, if anything it just makes him boring. I suppose you could call boring bad, but I'd rather be a boring bad than a losing the beat, throwing everyone off bad.
