Thats why drummers usually write fuck all in terms of their bands output. While ringo was busy tuning his kick drum to his room the other 3 were making music. You dont want to be that guy in the interview
"so how do you feel looking back on the beatles music all this time later?"
"Im never happy when I listen back to our old records, I dont think we ever really got the kick drum sound right"
worth noting Ive spent the last 3 days fighting kick/snare vs sub sounds till my ears hurt
