Ringo's drumming draws praise
All of the Fab Four's records have been remastered and repackaged and will appear on the shelves on Wednesday.
Although they are widely regarded as the finest albums in rock history, the contribution of drummer Ringo Starr has been frequently mocked over the years.
Sam Belkin of the Examiner has hit back at the ridicule, describing Starr's performances as sophisticated, distinctive and carefully calculated.
"What makes a good drummer is creativity, originality and the ability to interpret song structure," he commented.
Mr Belkin added that Paul McCartney's occasional stints behind a drum kit on Beatles records were more of a testament to the bass guitar player's "musical megalomania", rather than his views on Ringo's playing.
McCartney played the drums on several Beatles songs, including Back in the USSR, Dear Prudence and The Ballad of John and Yoko.Posted on 7 Sep 2009 16:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
