Ringo's favorite Beatle song
Ringo's favorite Beatles song
Give yourself 9 points if you guessed "Rain." Ringo adapted well from live musician to studio musician. The same can't be said for all drummers. Dennis Wilson was replaced on tape by a studio drummer on several of the Beach Boys hits like "Little Deuce Coupe."
There are restraints on studio drummers. The exception in the case of the Beatles was "Rain." Ringo was turned loose. Forget the idea of this being a hit record. Let's just record what to create a song we're happy with. John did a lot of "masking" on this track. It can be heard especially well toward the end of the song.
True or false? The Safaris were so sure they had a hit with "Wipe Out" because of playing it for their high school teen hops that they actually bet their friends as to whether ot not they would get on the charts with it.
