Watch as some of the world’s greatest drummers pay tribute to Ringo Starr

First, let’s have none of that crap about Ringo not being a very good drummer. Anyone who knows anything about drumming realizes that Ringo’s playing was extraordinarily tasteful and innovative. He also knew when to hold back and how to serve the songs created by his bandmates. There’s no arguing that he was one of the most influential drummers of all time. And even on his worst day, Ringo Starr is still a Beatle.

Check out this video from 2015 from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony where some of music’s greatest drummers got together to pay tribute to him. (Via FarOut Magazine)
