Of course they said that. Image that any of them would've said "We could've made it work without Ringo"... Of course they didn't say that...

Paul - a genius..but an a**hole b/c he knows that he's a genius
John - a genius and the coolest member[/quote]
Have you ever read that long Rolling Stone interview with John Lennon? John also knew very, very well that he was a genius. He could also be pretty arrogant about it... And what do you expect of Paul? "Yeah, I wrote dozens and dozens of million selling hits, but I don't find myself that good a songwriter"... Some people just don't have to be humble because there's no reason for it.

Pete Best (or anyone else for that matter) could NEVER have come up with the drum fills Ringo used in A Day In The Life.[/quote]
You can't be sure about that... Being the drummer for the Beatles meant that your full time job was to constantly jam with three of the biggest geniuses in pop music history... I think that after a while you almost "automatically" start doing brilliant things as well. Maybe Pete Best or someone else would've came up with some really brilliant stuff as well.
