Richard Starkey

People have often derided the Beatles' solo careers, but each of them was hugely successful as a solo artist during the first five years after breaking up. Compare Ringo, for example to any of the former members of Pink Floyd, the Who, Led Zeppelin or the Rolling Stones, none of whom had anything close to as much success as solo artists....

Very true. Put together a 'best-of' CD of Ringos stuff from the 70s til now, anf you wind up with a very enjoyable disc. It's no "Plastic Ono Band" by any stretch, but quite a good roof on the car down sunny day type of good.
