    I wonder if he will get together with David for a bit of a do? Social distancing permitting of course.

    Interviewer: John, is Ringo the best drummer in world?

    John Lennon: He's not even the best drummer in The Beatles.

    Although that's a good story, apparently it isn't true.

    John Lennon, what a spiteful, pi*sy piece of work he was. My least favourite Beatle.

    “Ringo wasn’t even the best drummer in the Beatles.” Never said by John Lennon. Jasper Carrott’s office claimed it as 1983 gag; proof now it was said earlier, in BBC comedy Radio Active in Oct 1981. File here. Voice by Philip Pope. Written by Geoffrey Perkins. Not by John Lennon.

    "I am the ******** click track"

    And, for someone supposedly so wised up and cool, he was incredibly credulous. It was like every fake and grifter- Magic Alex, Allen Klein, Tim Leary, Arthur "Primal Scream" Yanov, the Yippies, the White Panthers, the IRA, Phil Spector, Yoko Ono- in the world was magnetically drawn to him to him (and his money and fame) and he to them.
