Starr Time: A Celebration of Ringo Starr's Contributions to The Beatles
Contrary to popular belief, Ringo Starr was an integral component of the Beatles. This 60-minute program will explain how and why Ringo replaced the band's previous percussionist, Pete Best, and analyze and celebrate Ringo's contributions to the Beatles (including his singing, drumming, and personality) through musical examples and excerpts from interviews with the band members.
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
