i'm not sure anyone here has anything bad to say about ringo as a drummer. and i'm also not sure he is that underrated as one either. he is considered, by many accounts, as one of the best of all time. that is not to say he would have been fine behind pete townshend and roger daltry. or page and plant. but he did what he did...and he did it very well. different styles for different bands.
and nice call with the petty thing, mervap...you hit it right on the head.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.
