I think he thinks his work was used by the Beatles but I personally don't think it was. Years back I remember Purdie saying he was in a studio at the same time as Ringo and someone put 2 and 2 together and got 7 and put this into Bernard's ear. You know how this industry works. If there are Beatles-level royalties in it, the lawyers smell blood.
I know Ringo isn't held at the same technical level as Steve Gadd, Vinnie, Bernard or indeed Jim Keltner and the other session legends but if you speak to them about Ringo, they say he plays exactly the right stuff for those songs and they really rate him as a musician because he always plays to the song, and not to impress other drummers.
My mum used to work in Liverpool and watch the lunchtime set in the original Cavern. The canteen area was shared benches and tables and she sat with them (The Beatles) often, and Cilla. No egos. She used to get in for free for the evening sets because she said the bouncer fancied her.

Not the cream of some young guy then? #waynesworld
I also learned this week that Bill Evans has a son called Evan Evans who is in the movie scoring business and it's probably a bad idea to pedal anything on the piano if you want to be taken seriously #sustainisforquitters
