Right, but this is because he was in the Beatles, which of course, he's already inducted. Ringo's solo career deserves ZERO consideration as a potential second time inductee. He's got a handful of solo hits, but come on.
I totally understand your point but as I said...I tend to lower my criteria when I see some of the names on the list of inductees...I agree that Ringo would be hard pressed to come up with just one greates hits CD that warrants induction but I do think he is one of the greatest drummers of all time...with The Beatles and as a solo artist...plus, there are plenty of inductees that just play instruments...Your point is well taken by me Rick.
