Happy Birthday Ringo!

I just recently saw a Beatles tribute band called "1964 a Tribute" they were amazing, I saw them at the Coronado Theater In Rockford, they did so many great Beatles tunes, it was as close as one can get in 2018 to actually seeing the Beatles back in the day, the icing on the cake? I saw them for free!

I remember seeing a video, I think it was with John Lennon, a reporter asked John if Ringo was the best drummer in the world,...John responded (in his Liverpool accent),...."He's not even the best drummer in the Beatles" I lol-ed at that.

But seriously, Ringo was the right man for the job, he fit them like a glove, he was a very solid drummer, no frills, just beats. Oh, and he could sing too.
