Oh, yeah, I love me some metal, Jeff.

But getting back to Starr, I guess the question comes up of what constitutes "greatness."  Is it raw technical prowess, or groundbreaking influence on future generations or a combination of both?  Here are McBrain's own thoughts on Starr, where he readily admits Ringo's talent was superb.  

http://www.rockradioscotland.co.uk/rock-news/nickos-tribute-to-ringo/y5u6yt5r/

I'm sure McBrain and a bunch of other 13 year kids could ape Ringo's style, but could they actually compose those beats and perfect that timing?  I don't think so.

Yeah good points Ryan!

Jeff, those Beatle covers that Nicko played were proably thier early stuff, which isn't complex drumming at all.

It wasn't until 'Revolver' in 1966 that Ringo's drums became more part of the sound. And it helped that the engineers at Abbey Road starting experimenting with new techniques for recording.

No one had ever miked a drum close to the kit before Geoff Emerick did it to Ringo.

Ringo's timing has been mentioned as unbelievable. The short drum solo on Abbey Road was looped for hours and set against a metronome - it never strayed at all.

I read last night an interesting comment from a drummer - if you isolate ringo's drums on nearly every Beatle song, you can still tell what the song is. A very telling fact.

Ok, a lot of the classic rock songs you could pick by that too - well, I could, as I have a huge mind database of songs, trivia,etc - but that's still a fair effort.

John Lennon once said his 3 three favorite drummers were Ringo, Moonie and Bonzo.

Right on guys.  Interesting pull on that article, Ryan.

You know...seriously...I don't like repeating myself over and over and being an ass.  I'm not a drummer, but my best bro, that I actually grew up with, was.  We'd jam alot.  He actually taught me quite a bit on the drum kit.

Here's what I'm going to say and I'll leave it at this.

Drumming on its own and by itself isn't "easy" for everyone by any means.  The more drums, cymbals, etc. you add, the harder it gets.  The faster and more intricate the song/beat,. again, the harder it gets.

I don't know for sure, but I highly doubt Ringo ever even played a double bass kick.  I also highly doubt he ever had a drum kit that totaled over 7 heads and 5 cymbals.

My point is simple...you can look back on anything "successful" and in no way can you deny the talent involved...at least in some way, be it football, baseball, boxing, or music.  But when it comes time to really look at what each individual was doing and how it stacks up against others, IMO, it's pretty clear where the real talent is.

For instance, I was flipping channels around last night while watching the game and settled on the Country Music Awards.  Alabama was playing, after winning their 1 Millionth award.  They're country royalty.  Their all mega millionaires.  They're all 40+ year Pros who can play music in their sleep.  But...are any of them amazing musicians?  Does the lead singer have a great voice?  Does it matter?  No...it doesn't.


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

The song is in Japanese but it's still really really good. I would recommend it if you need a break from English

What's that supposed to mean! Even though I don't know a word of what their saying I still enjoy it.

And my taste... Well, I can't really help it but I like to try out different things and came across this while watching Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

No problemo, MO  

I've been listening to these two quite a lot lately.

Awesome video for the Radiohead song by the way.

Watched them both. The video for the Radiohead song was very.. strange! Nobody can forget the second song from Fight Club

And while I am here! I'll post an English song

I see your Pixies and raise you a better song. Not the official video but it doesn't force you to watch a BS advertisement...

And just for good measure...



But at this point, I guess it doesn't really matter... We're both spreading the same type of same type of rock n' roll.
