Ringo Starr’s Compliment of Brian Wilson’s Work Ethic Was Higher Praise Than He Thought: ‘It Was Incredible’

Ringo Starr rarely hesitates to call it like he sees it, even if he’s the target. Yusuf / Cat Stevens cut his drumming from an album, and his reaction to the slight was pure class. So when Ringo complimented Brian Wilson’s work ethic, it was massive praise from The Beatles drummer to the Beach Boys frontman.

Ringo Starr said watching Brian Wilson work ‘was incredible’

Thankfully for him and music fans, he committed to a healthier lifestyle and continued making music. The drummer also inspired another legendary musician to get sober.
