Maybe listening to some of these Ringo lyrics would bring on a similar reaction.
Yeah, and Lennon wasn't shy about doing it either (Glass Onion...How do You Sleep), but at least it was in the same era. I watched him on Letterman last night, and he's just old Ringo. I love him and all, but to see him ding out front and then go to his kit with a minute left in the song was somehow kind of sad. Kind of like if Paul was singing at a mic sans instrument and then picking up the Hof for a few notes at the end.
