Some see him as the the Beatles' [[LesserStar Garfunkel]], having only been credited for writing two Beatles songs which are mostly viewed as AlbumFiller (although "Octopus's Garden" appeared on a GreatestHitsAlbum). Ringo himself is often very [[SelfDeprecation Self Deprecating]] about this. The other Beatles tried to avoid this, however, by giving him at least one song to sing on every album, and have repeatedly declared his importance for the band in interviews. Music/JohnLennon, who often hired Ringo as his drummer after the break-up because he had gotten used to his groove, noted in an interview that "Ringo's a damn good drummer. He always was a good drummer. He's not technically good, but I think Ringo's drumming is underrated the same way as [[Music/PaulMcCartney Paul's]] bass playing is underrated".

Oh, and did we mention he provided narration for the first two seasons of the ''WesternaAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' series, and also played the Conductor. As well as the first surviving Beatle to appear on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' in "Brush With Greatness".

Added DiffLines:

* RagsToRiches: Was maybe the poorest of all four Beatles as a child, having lived in low-income housing to a single-parent family, missing much of his education due to frequent illness, but he became very well-to-do as Beatlemania took off.
