Slightly off topic here but I didn't want to start a new thread:

I was thinking about my other fave drummers like Moonie and Charlie Watts. How would Ringo have gonne being the Stones drummer for instance?
I know Charlie had a jazz background but he put in some mighty performances, not just live. Gimme Shelter and Riocks Off are two of his best IMO.
Moonie was, well, we all know, just so out of this world but he could only have been successful playing the Who's brand of music.

I had planned to go on and on but just wanted to know what the drummers here onsite think about it. I love reading the discussions you guys have about playing the different Beatle songs and the techie stuff!!

alright stevie!well,in my opinion i think ringo could quite easily have fitted into the stones' style of music ok,it would bring in a different feel to charlie watts,but i don't think ringo would struggle with the stones.the who on the other hand were just a freak kind of band with a very freak drummer.all drummers have their own unique feel and style;some good,some fair,some not so good.moonie was a one-off.nobody has come close to replicating keiths' drumming.now some players don't get on with moonies' style,and fair play.however,he cannot be denied,and he was one of the best rock drummers ever to grace the stage.jeff beck said of keith '..his style was just like pushing a drum kit down a flight of stairs' and i think that's quite accurate!!kenney jones is a great player but was plain wrong for the who,and i think ringo would be just as-if not more-out of place in the who.it is no detriment to ringo (or kenney)to say that....a bit like replacing john lennon with jeff lynne.a great singer/songwriter,but not the right guy.moonie was incredible.check out the who at the isle of wight festival,1970.just incredible drumming by anybodys' standards.

From Ringo's solo career, I love "Back Off Boogaloo". I love to listen to that song just hear his drumming. It reminds me to Keith Moon's famous "lead drumming".

Ringo Starr: Back Off Boogaloo

I don't really know anything about drumming, but I love what he does in Rain. Does he also play drums in The End? For some reason I think that wasn't him. But I love the drums in that song. So simple but so good.

Yeah, that was him. What makes you think it wasnt Mairi? The style or did you read something? I'm just curious because I never read anything before that said it might not be him.

There's something about it that's a bit different from what he usually plays, though I don't know how to describe it. I dunno but I love the solo, can't help but air-drumming when it comes along.

Definitely "Helter Skelter." That drumming is absolutely fantastic!

I also like his drumming on his solo album Vertical Man.

Yeah, if we're going solo stuff, his drumming on Ringo Rama is incredible.

Well, I gave that member the benefit of the doubt.
