You understand that Ringo was a great drummer right? He could play many different styles, had perfect tempo, and could play odd time signatures. He is also very creative and distinct, in fact, he changed drumming due to his unique positioning and playing. Just listen to his drumming on "Rain", "The End", or "Come Together". He wasn't just lucky, he was amazing and the Beatles were actually lucky to have such an amazing drummer. By the way, he is an excellent singer as well! Just listen to the beauty of his voice in "With A Little Help From My Friends", "Good Night", "Yellow Submarine", and "Octopus's Garden" (An amazing song that HE WROTE). So don't write off Ringo, he was creative in his own way and deserves appreciation. (Edit: Grammar)

He's better than a lot of people make him out to be, but a lot of people could've been the drummer in a band with 3 super talented people setting the standard for a long time to come. Lucky bugger was he.

Ringo is a really good drummer. The drums are not designed for soloing. They should elevate the song, which Ringo always did. To suggest that the drummer in the most successful band in history is not good is to suggest that the drummers don't matter, which is dead wrong. Go listen to the recordings with Pete Best. They're really bad. Ringo changed everything for the Beatles. People just rip on him because he's less talented than three of the most talented pop musicians who ever lived. But in most bands, he'd be the most talented member.

Many songs from the white album inspired Manson and I wouldn't say Helter Skelter necessarily inspired him more over others. He was inspired a lot by Revolution 9 and piggies as, even putting quotes from piggies on the wall in blood at some of the murder sites.

Billy Preston, who is the only person to get a joint credit on a Beatles song. Although that was more due to contractural problems than the band's feelings about him and other artists.

And then there is the story maybe true maybe not that during George's disappearance during the Abbey Road recordings that John and Paul had numerous conversations about firing him and bringing in Clapton to at least finish the album and perhaps be a permanent replacement.Nonetheless he for sure played on one song on the "White" album and very likely played on one or more songs from Abbey Road.

According to George Harrison, the only people worthy of that title are Derek Taylor and Neil Aspinall, although everything I have read about the band (and it's a lot) suggests George Martin contributed a lot to the music, and much more than anyone besides the actual band members.

First live rock concert I ever went to---reluctantly, at the time---was when a woman who was friends of my folks asked me if I would please drive her and several teen girls to it because she didn't want to fight the traffic and asked me to "watch out" for the girls. Said she had a free ticket for me. The Beatles, Cow Palace, San Francisco, 1964.

^ Yes, John was very egotistical, wasn't he? Ringo is an excellent drummer (and singer), who was not appreciated (at least by John). It's no surprise that John became a house-husband; to me his greatest achievement (Imagine) was behind him.

I never thought of it that way before, but I bet that it is an LSD reference. It isn’t clear from the full acronym, but just the three nouns is Lucy Sky Diamonds (LSD).
