Ringo Starr Says Beatles Re-Masters Brought Him New Respect

Ringo Starr Says Beatles Re-Masters Brought Him New Respect
2/21/2012 1:16 PM ET

Ringo Starr has revealed that the re-mastered Beatles albums have helped bring him new respect as a drummer.

While speaking with M—Music & Musicians, the Liverpool legend says the re-mastered albums helped bring new clarity to the drums, and with that came a new level of recognition.

"I love the remasters. And you know why? You can hear the drums! Suddenly people [were saying], 'Oh, we better look again at his playing.' Sometimes that's been in doubt in a lot of people's minds. Of course, with Lennon and McCartney in the group, what do you expect?" he explains.

"The first clue was when we remixed Yellow Submarine. Paul and I went to Abbey Road to listen to it, and we both said, 'Who the hell played that?' So yeah, suddenly people were saying, 'Oh, maybe he could play.' The one thing I can always look at is that The Beatles' music is great. What we did, the four of us, is incredible."
