John Lennon was once asked by a reporter, in the Beatles heyday, was Ringo the best drummer in the world, John replied, No, he's not even the best drummer in the Beatles.. :D

Be careful with quotes that do not give a reference (where? to whom?). I found this by googeling:

A quote from Mark Lewisohn:

“The London Times newspaper quoted John Lennon ‘famously saying that Ringo wasn’t even the best drummer in the Beatles.’ John Lennon never said that, famously or otherwise, and that is the London Times quoting him,” Lewisohn said, making a point about his motivation for trying to separate fact from Fab Four mythology.

“For me, it’s [a case of tracking down] when did he say this? I’ve heard every John Lennon interview, I’ve read every John Lennon interview, I never saw that quote. So when did he say it, let alone when did he famously say it?” he said. “I determined to get to the bottom of it. And it’s actually a TV comedian’s joke from three years after John was killed, in 1983. So John Lennon never said it -- and wouldn’t have said it.”

2 . The line often attributed to John Lennon - "Ringo isn't the best drummer in the world. He isn't even the best drummer in the Beatles" - was actually uttered by British comedian Jasper Carrott in 1983.

Ringo did what needed to be done. Ringo is not rudimental drummer, his fills were simple but they fit perfectly. Good drummer.
