Hahaha... wouldn't you just know it, after my last post variance came and bit me in the ARSE today.. Karma, so i'd like to say sorry variance i'll never doubt you again, now please go away...
There was an article on the news earlier about Ringo Starr and he is the luckiest person ever to have lived. Now I HATE the Beatles completely. They are shit shit shit and I don't stand for this "you must like them because they're popular" argument. Susan Boyle sold million of records as have Robson and Jerome, Bob the Builder, The Cheeky Girls, Milli Vanilli, Level 42, Daniel O'Donell and Ricky Martin and you can't say that they're musical brilliance can you? Also if you look in the top selling albums of all time you have The Backstreet Boys and AC/DC in the top 10 who also arn't classed as brilliance and how many Beatles Albums?? None... Top selling singles then.. Baccarra - Yes Sir I can boogie ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGuFn0RPgaE ) has sold nearly twice as many as the biggest selling Beatles song and has anyone heard of it?? Nope.. and are they huge?? Nope..
So given the weirdness to me that the Beatles are as big as they are, take Ringo who wasn't the original drummer in the Beatles, that was Pete Best. Ringo was playing in a band called Rory Storm and the Hurricanes and joined the Beatles when Pete Best left. On the whole it seems Ringo didn't really contribute to the band at all in terms of creativity. At one stage John Lennon was asked if Ringo was the best drummer in the world, to which he responded "he isn't the best drummer in the beatles".
Ringo a few years back opened the "Liverpool capital of culture" celebrations and then a few days later told Jonathan Ross he missed nothing about living in liverpool.. well done there Ringo.
So Ringo star is now worth millions for playing the drums a little bit not very well.
Saying that he did read Thomas the Tank engine which is also shit...
