Ringo is definitely the best Beatle drummer. His technique & style complemented the others perfectly. He always knew what each song needed, & never tried to do too much.

I remember a John Lennon interview in which Lennon during the "Double Fantasy" sessions had Andy Newmark as drummer said to him a couple of times:"Forget the fancy shit, Andy. Play like Ringo!". Well, that says it all. As Chris said, Ringo was keeping the right beat for the Beatles, giving to their sound economy yet quality. And yes, in my opinion Ringo was not only the best drummer for the Beatles but, also, one of the best of all times. "Ticket to ride", "Rain", "A Day in the life" are few examples thaI t prove his talent and how he led good songs into masterpieces. So, we may acknowledge the genius of John, Paul and George but it is unfair not to say that Ringo was an equal member to the others even though he didn't compose a "Someting" for instance. I think without him, the Beatles could have been a much different band.

I grew up in Liverpool and am old enough to have seen the Beatles at the Cavern Club with Pete Best. He's still my favorite. Always has been, always will be.
