My guest today is musician/singer/songwriter/producer Luther
Russell - you may recall him (SATB
192) as one half of Those Pretty Wrongs, a duo with Jody
Stephens (ex-Big Star). As a devout fan from birth and a drummer
himself, Luther possesses considerable insight into what made Ringo
the essential Beatle: how a combination of unique
skills, background and chemistry with the others made him the
band's most valuable player in a very real sense. This sprawling
conversation addresses Ringo's singular gifts that not only served
his band so well over the course of their live and studio career
but also how he built the vocabulary that countless others followed
in his wake.
