Just to make it clear, I'm not saying and have never said that Ringo was a bad drummer. He could keep a beat, and was an excellent Pop drummer, but he just wasn't a great hard rock drummer. For me to say that he was a mellow drummer the other day was more of a mistake, since he did at times pound the drums hard, the problem was, he was limited on how he played. Ever notice that he always had a tiny drum kit? That's because he only played a few drums at a time, so he was totally limited in that way. Ringo never could have drummed in a Heavy Metal band, that's for sure, and because of his limits, he couldn't drum in a hard rock band regularly, either.
On all of the hardest rocking Beatles songs, Ringo wasn't behind the kit, it was usually Paul and sometimes John there in his place. For example, on the hard rocking "Back in the U.S.S.R.", it was a combo of Paul, John, and even George playing the drums in different parts of the song, but no Ringo on that tune at all, since that was one of several songs that Ringo wasn't around for when he had quit the band for a few days when they were making the White Album. Had he been there for that one, that song won't have rocked as hard, IMO. But on the White Album alone, Paul played the drums instead of Ringo on 5 songs, while John played them on at least 2 songs.
