Did Lennon really make this famous joke at the expense of his Beatle pal? Let’s find out…
It’s one of the standing jokes in the music industry. And it reportedly came from the mouth of John Lennon himself:
“Ringo wasn’t the best drummer in the world… Let’s face it, he wasn’t even the best drummer in The Beatles”
Now Lennon was known for his caustic wit, and this is a prime example of how biting he could be - even having a pop at his former Beatle colleague.
