I like Beethoven,
especially the poems.

Ringo Starr

Ringo was always considered
the accidental Beatle, the classic
example of being in the right
place at the right time, and
few expected his solo career to
amount to much. But in fact he
cranked out Top 10 singles for
the next half-decade after the
Beatles' demise,

writing some catchy singalong
tunes like "It Don't Come Easy,
and getting assistance from
big-name friends, including but
not limited to the rest of the Fab Four.
He ran out of steam amid a morass
of personal problems in the late 70s,
and dropped off the scene for almost
a decade, before resurfacing as a
Superstar oldies act.

Two other notes, first, i don't
think Ringo's success was an
accident; he may well have been
the best rock drummer in England
when the Beatles decided to
replace Pete Best in 1962, and
he's not my personal favorite of all
rock drummers, but i like him
too much! Famous for contributing
only one true drum solo to any of
the Beatles' 200-odd songs, he's

the master of understatement,
aiming to complement the music
instead of pounding his drums
to death or showing off his
technical expertise.
His creativity, common sense,
and class are rarely matched.

Second, almost nobody listens to a rock record for the drumming, and I have to admit that Ringo's solo work is the least substantial of any of the Beatles'. However, he did contribute to a variety of other artist's records throughout the 70s, sometimes credited only by a pseudonym.
