Happy birthday, Ringo

Incredibly, Ringo Starr is eighty today. When I was busy this morning, I had Classic on and Xander (big Beatles fan), paid tribute. He said that the unkind saying attributed to John Lennon that ‘Ringo wasn’t the best drummer in the world. He wasn’t even the best drummer in the Beatles.’ in fact originated in a Jasper Carrott sketch. Sometimes, I wonder how I’ve managed to live so long without knowing these things.
