The Beatles were really formed in 1962, after their manager, Brian Epstein, decided to fire the band’s first drummer, Pete Best, before replacing him with Ringo Starr. Then, the Fab Four set out to take over the world with their music. But John Lennon felt as though two of the band members weren’t needed throughout their journey.

Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, were interviewed in 1980 for the book David Schiff: All We Say: The Last Major Interview with John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

In the intimate conversation, he admitted that he and his songwriting team, Paul McCartney, were the core members of the band.

Lennon said, “Let’s just say, I think it’s possible that John and Paul could have created the same thing with two other men. George and Ringo probably wouldn’t have created it without John and Paul. Yes?”

Although a little harsh, it’s easy to see why Lennon thought that.

The Lennon-McCartney songwriting partnership wrote countless Beatles songs that proved to be amazing chart successes. These credits included songs like Love Me Do, Please Me and She Loves You to name a few.

However, it’s important to note that George Harrison and Starr wrote some huge songs of their own as well. The former, in particular, penned some of the band’s biggest and best songs ever, including Something, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Here Comes the Sun and In You Without You.

However, Lennon continued to praise the couple’s music. He said: “It doesn’t detract from the individual talent they have. Ringo was a star in his own right in Liverpool before we even met. Ringo was a professional drummer who sang and played and was in one of the best groups. In Britain and especially in Liverpool, so Ringo’s talent was going to show. In a way or another.

Lennon also thought that the Beatles’ drummer would become a highly regarded star even if he never joined the band.

“I don’t know what it would have ended up with,” he said. “Whatever that spark was in Ringo, we all know it but just can’t put our finger on it. Whether it’s acting or drumming or singing, I don’t know.” He added, “There is something in him that could be brought down and he would have emerged as an individual.”

It appears the feeling was mutual between Lennon and Starr, with the latter recently revealed in the new Disney Plus documentary If These Walls Could Sing.

Starr recently paid tribute to one of Lennon’s lesser-known songs. He said: “My favorite song is Yer Blues, where we took everything into a room, just not that big [small] rug “.

“We just rocked it,” he remembers. “We just turned into, you know, this incredible, amazing band. It’s one of the all-time great memories for me.”

Lennon first wrote Year Blues while visiting India and “trying to reach out to God and feel suicidal”.
