You'd have to go with Rain, A Day In The Life, or Oh! Darling.

I´ve heard that it was Paul who played the drum solo in The End.

In my opinion best drumming is Strawberry Fields Forever, and the most complicated is Happiness Is A Warm Gun.

The two obvious choices are...the End, and Rain. Although it should be noted that Ringo gets bashed often from rock fans AND critics. He's an awfully underrated drummer. He was as solid of a backbeat as the Rolling stones Charlie Watts, IMO.

Glad I was the first to suggest this one...the drumming on Tomorrow Never Knows is as good as Ringo has ever been. Maybe one of his all time career highlights.

I've read sometime ago that Ringo's basic drumming pattern for TNK was suggested by Paul.

You might be right. I think I've heard before that much of ringo's drumming was "suggested" be either John or Paul.
