Actually, I played the hell out of the 'Ringo' album in high school, and think his music overall is highly under-rated. 'It don't come easy' will always get the hair up on the back of my neck. Many of his songs have a comedic aspect to them which I like, and I think many of the comedic vibes from the Beatles' earlier period/movies were helped by his presence.
Ringo was my favorite Beatle. There, I said it. I can live with it. And when I see him on the late-night talk shows, laid back, still cracking jokes, I don't feel so old.
And I can still remember when I was a kid, sitting in the barber's chair, looking at photos they had on the wall of the Beatles so you could decide which of their hair cuts you wanted. And I used to love the Beatles cartoon show, which I think was on every Saturday morning.
Yeah, I'd want to be young again, but only if I could know everything I know now, and do it back then, instead of today. Grumpy old man alert-- I think the old days were better days.
