The Drummer Gets None of the Glory.
How producer Sir George Martin described The Beatles when George Harrison died. Who is Ringo? The cute one who married a Bond girl, who doesn't dye his hair, who gets the least press and most paltry royalties, wasn't knighted, got along with everybody, just did as he was told, who doesn't need to practice and can sit down and hold a rock-steady in a second, without whom The Beatles would've been a rhythm-less consortium of hapless twats. But what do I know? I'm JUST A DRUMMER TOO.
