[quote author=AnotherIdiotSavant link=board=legends;num=1072427102;start=0#5 date=12/28/03 at 21:21:46]Oh hell yeah, Billy, except... what the hell? Ringo Starr!? C'mon, mate. We're talking skill, not influence.[/quote]<br><br>I thought this thread was about who your favorite drummers were. Ringo may not be as flashy as anyone else on the list, but if you can keep a beat that well, you don't need to be flashy. <br><br>

Ringo could keep time like a rock (if a rock played drums).  he never lost that beat.
