Ringo has inspired more people to take up the drums than any other single drummer. What he did didn't look that hard and he was obviously having a good time doing it. As rock got more complex through the 1960's it was routine to write off Ringo's beats as easy and therefore brand him as an avergae drummer - the one who got lucky. Many people knew better. Today his contribution and influence are widely recognised - the ultimate fat groove, perfect playing for the song, the unique sound of Ringo's beats tied to the greatest rock tunes fo all time.
