When we started, we didn't even use Ringo's drumming on the records. We almost kicked him out of the band because he was so bad.
I'll tell you why we did so few live concerts. I'll tell you in one word. RINGO. HE COULDN'T KEEP A BEAT!!!
This is not a list of the most CREATIVE drummers, or the most ESSENTIAL-TO-THEIR-BAND drummers, it is a list of the best. And I consider it a personal insult to all of the drummers below him on this list that Ringo is at number 13. No offense to my good friend Ringo.
