Top-10 Ringo Starr Quotes

  • "I love being in a band, I love playing with other human beings. I've never practiced drums unless there was another human being in the room. If you could play, I'd play with you all night. But if I'm just playing by myself, it gets boring pretty quick."
  • "I've never really done anything to create what has happened. It creates itself. I'm here because it happened. But I didn't do anything to make it happen apart from saying 'Yes'."
  • "I met The Beatles while we were playing in Germany. We'd seen them in Liverpool, but they were a nothing little band then, just putting it together - in fact, they weren't really a band at all!"

  • "I felt I was a much better drummer than he (Pete Best) was."
  • "It may sound like a joke - go and have a look in my bedroom, It's covered with Gene Autry posters. He was my first musical influence."

  • "I couldn't put my finger on one reason why we broke up. It was time, and we were spreading out. They were spreading out more than I was. I would've stayed with the band."
