Default Was Ringo A Crap Drummer.

Ringo Starr...was he any good on the skins?

In my opinion Ringo has always had a bad press and has always been slagged off as the least talented of The Beatles.

He was always the first to admit that he wasn't the most talented drummer and often put himself down.
But in reality would the other 3 have had him in the band if they thought he was crap, particularly a perfectionist like McCartney?

i think ringo was a fine drummer. i mean, he was definitely not as talented as others, but i think he contributed to the beatles sound.

i know for a fact that drummers can change the sound of a band completely. my band, who recently found a new drummer that is about 324349720348987 times better than our last one, has a noticeably revamped sound because the drummer is capable of different and more complicated fills and beats.

i think in the way you are looking at it, that ringo was part of the original sound of the beatles, and they didnt want to change that. they got together, and liked the sound they had and they didnt want to change it, and they didnt need to. if they really thought he was that bad, they probably would have ousted him, but they didnt because they liked the sound they had.

...thats the way i see it.
