Ringo Starr was never the deep thinking Beatle the others were. But his music and other works were fun and he has always been a fun entertainer. As a friend of mine and I agree, while Ringo is rarely a person's favorite Beatle, he is often described as a person's second favorite Beatle. That was the case with us. My favorite Beatle has always been John Lennon. Tim's favorite was George Harrison. But both of us quickly declared that Ringo was our 2nd favorite. He is a really likable person. So I am glad to hear he will get his own entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Of course he deserves it. Why not?-Otto
