Let's Give Ringo Some Respect!!!

I was talking to my good friend about solo Beatles songs. I noticed that there was a time when it was Ringo that had the hits. As a SOLO Beatle, he had the most hits post Beatles, pre John Lennon being dead. Actually Paul had more hits but he was in Wings for most of them. So here are some of his hits from the 70's

Here's a very well done video promo done in the 70's. Note the 16 girl. Carrie Fisher!

Back Off Boogaloo, standard video of the 70's. Cool Song, weird hair.

Here's a 90's version of Ringo's biggest hit Photograph


This is a poor copy of another hit of Ringo's It Don't Come Easy.

This is a blooper reel of Ringo with Marc Bolan of T-Rex. Ringo was the director of Marc Bolan's movie, who was at the top of his game. That's respect!

My favorite Ringo video is this clip with the Smother Brothers. The No No song was a cute hit for Ringo about giving up drugs but dig the marihuana leaves on the set and what's the deal with the cardboard cutout politicians? And dude! Check out Super Dave Osbourne before he was Super.
