Ringo Starr is “crap” at Beatles: Rock Band

Thursday, 14th January 2010 14:45 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has admitted on US TV he is “crap” at Rock Band.

Speaking on Jimmy Fallon’s show (via CVG), he said: “I’m absolutely crap at it.”

He did, however, give a lot of praise to developers Harmonix on the game.

We tried it when they were putting it together and they’d bring all these geniuses out to play it. It’s too frantic for me.

The graphics are great, I love the game and I love the music. But it’s for young folk.”

So Ringo is crap at it, and Sir Paul thought it originally looked a “really bad band“.

Who’s next to try it? Ah, Heather!

    Let’s not forget he narrated Thomas the Tank Engine, before we start dismissing him as a talent.

    Never heard of him. If Thomas had legs he’d kick his ass I’m am sure.
