Ringo, of course, polled plenty of votes in both qualifying and final Greatest British Drummer polls – proving that, despite his detractors, Ringo is still one of Britain’s best loved ambassadors for our instrument.
The Fab Four’s drily witty tub thumper created some of the finest grooves in pop history: ‘Come Together’, ‘Rain’, ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ and plenty more.
It’s worth remembering that The Beatles actively sought out Ringo’s services after Pete Best left the group, as he was known to be a great drummer for his work with Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, Liverpool’s top show band. He was integral in the band winning over US audiences too, and his performance on the Ed Sullivan Show 50 years ago inspired a whole generation of great drummers to pick up sticks and buy a Ludwig kit.
