Must be a great feeling to be considered as a hugely influential force on modern music, yet still to be, how can I put this, not considered a virtu0so.
Thats the status given to Ringo Starr, iconic drummer for the Beatles. Probably the first answer if you were to ask a total stranger the question "Can you name a drummer?
In this fruity tribute (f-bombs in case you are concerned about such things) from Dave Grohl (Nirvana), Stewart Copeland (The Police), Max Weinberg (Springsteen), Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson (The Roots), Jim Keltner (numerous studio recordings), Tre Cool (Green Day) and Chad Smith (Red Hor Chilli Peppers), Abe Laboriel Jnr (Steve Vai, Seal) and Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters).
The video was put together for the Hall of Fame piece on Ringo Starr.
Our favourite quote: "What is a great drummer, is it someone who is technically proficient, or someone who sits in the song?" - Dave Grohl - amen to that.
