i've said this before, but Richard "Ringo Starr" Starkey is an AWESOME drummer. The only reason why most people don't think so is because, like Dsnito said, he DIDN'T WANT to do all the fancy solos and stuff. Ringo said that his job as a drummer is to just keep the beat, and that's what he does. If Ringo really wanted to, he could go off on the drumset. As mentioned, just listen to 'The End.' He can do it when he wants to. He just usually doesn't want to.
PS--Dsnito, I LOVE 'The Song Remains The Same'!!! That film is amazing!! And guess what? That was actually Led Zep on a BAD night!! When the group saw the film, they were dissapointed with their performance!! Can you believe that?? I heard they were particularly dissapointed with the 29-minute long 'Dazed and Confused', (which is unbelievable because I think it's the highlight of the concert.) But I think I heard on good nights, they'd actually play D&C for 45 minutes!! If you can believe that!!
