But then Charlie Watts is Charlie Watts. And Ringo is Ringo. An apple. An orange. Greengrocers ain't we?
Crikey - have you read Keith Richards' autobiography yet? Interesting gobbits. How about this one: the Stones didn't pay themselves, and went without for a fortnight, just so that they could afford Charlie Watts when they were starting out. He was red-hot even as a youngster.
Me - well, for all his daftness and his complete and utter chaos in his drumming, it's got to be Moony.
I get a fix every now and again from 5:15. It's just fucking mental.
Give it a go. Go on. But play it fucking loud - headphones clamped to your head.

How did the Tool guy get to amass $40 million?
From what I recall they were some average light industrial band barely known outside the scene.
Guy Manpoof sux nuts for $$.
Tomcat trained. Satisfaction guaranteed.
I am most definitely not joking.
An account from Kate Moss is included where Keef chases a man around the grounds of his house during a wedding party because this guy 'borrowed' his spring onions (for the pie)
I know how that looks - but really. It's all in there.
Regarding Ringo, I'm not big on drummers but I would say this style of beat used in Tomorrow Never Knows, was YEARS ahead of its time and deserves a nod....

Interesting story, hot off the press - I have one of those ticker tape mullarkey things on the laptop. I was right before - yay! - it was Rory Storm and the Hurricanes.
Tapes by Ringo Starr's first band found
Recordings by Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, Ringo Starr's first band and one of the most popular groups of the early Merseybeat era, have been unearthed after more than 50 years.
The band were at the forefront of the Liverpool scene but never made it big.
The tapes were recorded in March 1960, two years before Starr was poached by Brian Epstein to join The Beatles.
Found in Storm's sister's cellar, the tapes will form the group's first and only album release later this month.
BBC News - Tapes by Ringo Starrs first band found
I have always enjoyed the simple sounding but complex percussion on "Love me do"...and had always thought it was a good example of Ringo's drumming...but was it?
I went to Youtube for this download and found this...
"Love Me Do" is an early Lennon/McCartney song, principally written by Paul McCartney in 1958/59 while playing truant from school.
John Lennon wrote the middle eight.
The song was The Beatles' first single, backed by "P.S. I Love You" and released on 5 October 1962.
When the single was originally released in the UK, it peaked at number seventeen; in 1982 it was re-issued and reached number four. In the U.S. the single was a number one hit in 1964.
"Love Me Do" begins with bluesy harmonica played by Lennon, then features Lennon and McCartney on joint lead vocals. McCartney sings the solo vocal line on the song's title phrase and also its middle eight.
Lennon had previously sung the title sections, but this change in arrangement was made in the studio under the direction of producer George Martin when he realised that the harmonica part encroached on the vocal (Lennon needed to begin playing the harmonica again on the same beat as the "do" of "love me do").
This is illustrative of the live characteristics of this particular session - as, when a similar situation later occurred on the "Please Please Me" single session, the harmonica was superimposed afterwards using tape-to-tape overdubbing.
"Love Me Do" was recorded by The Beatles on different occasions with three different drummers:
The Beatles first recorded it on 6 June 1962 with Pete Best on drums, as part of their audition at EMI Studios at 3 Abbey Road, London. This version (previously thought to be lost) is available on Anthology 1.
By 4 September, Best had been replaced with Ringo Starr (producer George Martin did not approve of Best's drumming), and on that day The Beatles with Starr recorded a version again at EMI Studios.
One week later, on 11 September, The Beatles returned to the same studio and they made a recording of "Love Me Do" with session drummer Andy White on drums while Starr played tambourine. As the tambourine was not included on the 4 September recording, this is the easiest way to distinguish between the Starr and White recordings.
