Why Ringo is the best ex-Beatle
Or should we say, "better" ex-Beatle? Since there are only two left (my math isn't THAT bad).
Why doesn't anyone ever mention how great Ringo looks? In his youth, he was the most awkward-looking of the group. Girls loved him because they wanted to mother him. He was a solid journeyman drummer, but nothing special, so what did he add to the group? Vulnerability, naivete, and an appealing homeliness.
Now he has aged into his features and clearly kicks ass, outstripping Paul (who has had a little work done, obviously). Not only that: say the name Paul and no one knows which Paul you mean, but Ringo. . .
