The world’s greatest rock drummer? Consider the obvious evidence. Yet this man is also a solo artist of repute. As the bedrock of the Beatles sound, Ringo's distinctive on the beat style and pioneering tom tom work ensured that the diminutive percussionist won plaudits from peers and more importantly his own esteemed colleagues. Without Ringo - John, Paul and George often said, there was no Beatles and on the occasions he did walk out, they generally wooed him back with hugs and flowers laid in front of his kit.

Though making no claim to the finest singer around, nevertheless Ringo’s easy going vocals appeared on most of the Fabs discs. A confident enough country singer, his version of “Act Naturally” became the standard and defined his good-natured approach. His role as a featured singer on stage was never in doubt and the Ringo moment was a highlight of every show the Beatles played from 1962 until they effectively quit live performing in 1966. He also enjoyed commercial acclaim for his talents on “With a Little Help From My Friends” and “Yellow Submarine” while his delightful childlike “Octopus’s Garden” and “Don’t Pass Me By” were self-penned and resilient additions to the canon.

Once the Beatles split for good in 1970, Ringo got back in the saddle and made a sequence of fine albums in his own right, which we are proud to detail below. His sales were based on genuine respect for his work rather than as mere nostalgia. Albums like the self-titled Ringo and Goodnight Vienna both featured high on charts and he notched up a straight run of eight Top Ten singles in the USA between 1971 and 1975 during what one might call his heyday. Around this time you will also see Ringo’s name on a slew of recordings for others – the other Beatles, of course, as well as Harry Nilsson and Stephen Stills, amongst many more.

Music aside his acting skills were always credited in the Beatles brilliant knockabout movies but he made more of a name for himself as a straight actor later and he has also directed music documentaries, designed furniture and published the excellent Postcards From The Boys, a poignant home thoughts from abroad hardback featuring a fascinating selection of cards sent to him by the other Beatles. He has the MBE and retains a place in the hearts of everyone who grew up with or came to adore The Beatles. And as will be seen his own output is far more varied and eclectic than a cursory glance at his career might indicate.
