BSBdG's today to Richard Starkey aka Ringo Starr, 64 today. It's simply impossible to imagine how different the music of the (arguably, alright?) most influential pop group in music history would be if not for Ringo's rock-solid and imaginative drumming.
Ringo solo? Well, My favorite will always be 1973's Ringo, which assembled a cast of thousands in support of some pretty darn good pop songs and imaginative production, and remains, in my opinion anyway, one of the best, and enjoyable, albums of that decade. Underrated? Uh...well...actually, I've always enjoyed Ringo The 4th a lot more than the experts told me I should, so go figure. Must to avoid: 1975's Ringo's Rotogravure.
