[quote by=Strawberryfields67 link=Blah.pl?b=cc,m=1085621502,s=33 date=1087396481]Paul-annoying sometimes but insanely talented.
John-when Yoko came he got annoying,but was also insanely talented.
George-what the other two were to songwriting he was towards music.
Ringo-o_0 uhuhuhhhhhhh...he got them the gig.[/quote]
Ringo was the base, the foundation and the back up for the other three. He grounded these three bobbing balloons and kept them from flying off forever.
Imagine if he too had been a mercurial ego-driven genius drummer. The Beatles surely would have splintered before the mid-60's from the masive tension.
George was also a grounding force, obviously. He had talent but not that competitive ego-driven need to top everything that went before. He too anchored J & P and let the group survive far longer than it would have otherwise (think of 'supergroups' made up of equal partners: CSN&Y, Cream, Blind Faith, etc.---how they shortly exploded into conflicts due to not having those grounding forces).
