Luckily, Pete Best quit after the Hamburg tour (when they sang as a back-up band for Tony Sheridan). If Ringo didn't take Pete's spot at the drum set, this word would have never been born. Cool word, N! :-)

I like the comment of Paul, when asked if Ringo was the best drummer in the world, he said Ringo wasn't even the best drummer in the Beatles!
