Ringo

I dont think the title of the thread fits exactly what you posted. He is most definitley not a jerk, and he is entitled to his opinion. But you have your right to an opinion, so I'm not trying to argue what you said, asr.

I did think the Police performance was a little boring, but the Chili Peppers just brought me down (as much as I love them)


And the Beatles aren't underrated!!!

And of course George and Ringo are less talented than their counterparts, Lennon and McCartney. Who isn't? That doesn't make them talentless. George not only wrote some beautiful songs, but played some fine guitar as well. Ringo held his own, and offered a sense of humor and calmness that complemented the group.

I still get lost in their music.

I think George, John, and Paul were equally talented. Three out of four isn't bad. Ringo was very APPROPRIATE for the Lennon/McCartney songs. That's why he was a good replacement
for Pete Best. If John Bonham was the drummer of the Beatles, they would have sucked. And I love Bonham.

It's ridiculous to descend into personal attacks over something as subjective as this. No one is required to have any particular opinion of Ringo Starr or the Beatles, no one is required to have any particular opinion of The Police or their Grammy performance. If you want to disagree with someone's evaluation of either and explain your reasons why, fine, but keep it constructive and civil.

I want Adam Clayton to slag off Bono.

And with regards to this thread's topic, Ringo Starr is actually the only Beatle I like, and not for anything musical (I find the Beatles to be very dull really), but for being the narrator of Thomas The Tank Engine. I think I loved Thomas The Tank even more than I ever loved U2's music.

Best episode was when the Fat Controller punsihed Henry by trapping him inside a tunnel..

"He'd been a very naughty engine!"

Long live TTTE

"[B]ands that still exist and are productive". The Police? :eyebrown: What's so productive about their reunion $how$? And is Ringo really sitting on his ass when he's touring with his own band?
And BTW, is it really an insult when you say that a performance was boring, thinking that it could be livelier, God bless that band? Well, in that case I think this place is one big insult fest...
And with your comment you've already committed a worse character murder than Ringo did with his comment.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

The performance the Police gave at the Grammy's was horrible. Period.
