    Ringo Star

    I just got done watching him on the Jimmy Fallon show. He played four songs, two Beatles tunes and a couple off his new album. The old stuff was okay, but the new songs were so bad and he sounded so bad it was embarrassing.

    I respect that he founded the original super pop group, but damn, know when enough is enough. Stop living off your cred and fade away gracefully.

    stopped watching after conan tonight so i didn't see it...overall not a big beatles fan but in defense those light night talk shows are horrible venues for sound quality and to actually get your music out there. i hate when i tell someone about a great up and coming band and they tell me "oh i heard them on conan and they SUCKED!"

    Get out and go to the concert in person and actually leave your house and then judge the music. not a knock on the OP, i just don't think it's a fair judgement of an artist's music to go off what they did on a late night TV program.

    that being said I think Ringo is by far the weakest talent of all the beatles and i think your seeing that in anything solo he does and i think they all need to just let it go at some point...

    Ringo has a unique voice. He sounds great in "With a Little Help from My Friends" and some of his solo songs, but his voice doesn't really suit him to be a rock or pop singer. Actually, a lot of his Beatles songs are almost old style country music. Great musician, just doesn't have the voice that John, Paul, and George had.
