Ringo did kinda luck out with the Beatles thing.

I don't dispute the man's talent at drums, but c'mon now...
The situation was lucky for him, yes, but he was also the perfect drummer for them. He fulfilled his roles - drummer, once-an-album singer, and the less-serious one - to a T, and his drumming was always tasteful and never flashy, allowing the songwriting talents of the rest of the group to shine.
