Anyone remember Vinnie Poncia ? This guy seemed to be one of Ringo´s best friends and was always heavily involved in album tracks, production, etc. during most of the seventies. Around ´78 he simply disappeared - out of Ringo´s life for ever since.
What happened to their friendship for it to go sour ? Does Anyone know ?
I always thought he was a lightweight composer, but I suppose he did alright by Rings. He also wrote with KISS, even wrote one for Elvis (for his hideous Harum Scarum flick). He got a Grammy with Leo Sayer for You Make Me Feel Like Dancing--like I said, he's a bit of a lightweight (although jazz axeman Lee Ritenour did a decent version of that one).
I've observed that co-writing is generally a temporary arrangement, and it's probably a good idea, except in the case of our beloved Lennon-McCartney. Berks, have you ever read that their friendship went sour? Seems to me that there is a dearth of Ringo info/auto/biographies. I wunnerwhy. [?]
