Kenny Aronoff

I consider him one of the
greatest innovators of rock drumming
and believe that he has been one of the
greatest influences on rock drumming today.
Ringo has influenced drummers more than they will ever realize or admit.
Ringo laid down the
fundamental rock beat

that drummers are playing today and they probably don't even realize it.
Ringo always approached the song more like a songwriter than a drummer.
He always served the music.
