Screw It, We're Just Gonna Talk About the Beatles

Friends from the Los Angeles comedy scene discuss the Beatles, one album at a time. We have no special qualifications nor reason to do this. And we often get facts wrong or leave them out. We just want to because we're obsessed with the Beatles, like any rational human. TOPICS INCLUDE: Reasons we love them! Stories we've read! Opinions we hold! Excitement we cannot contain! THE BEATLES!

Our silliest idea yet? We got 4 drummers, each with his own drum kit, into a recording studio to talk about Ringo Starr and his drumming. Surprise: we love him and it. 

Was it necessary to have 4 drummers at once? No, not at all. Was there some gain to be had for having more than one drummer play Ringo's licks at the same time? I mean, not that I can explain. But let me tell you this: once you get in your head that you're going get 4 drummers and 4 drum kits into a studio, all playing Ringo Starr drum parts at once -- it's a very tough idea to let go of. And we had a blast.

Our drummers / Beatlemaniacs are: Manny Hagopian, Chris Kula, Adam McCabe, Alex Scordelis

Do we do Ringo's big drum solo? Of course. Do we play and sing along to Octopus' Garden? Big yes. Is there a metal band in the adjacent studio playing speed thrash for much of the session? Yes again. 

Thanks so much to the drummers for coming and doing this! I wasn't able to give us much (any) time to rehearse together, and our sound check was minimal, but they crushed it! Don't Pass This (Episode) By!*

*I just realized we do not reference that song for the entire episode.

    I love Ringo. I have always admired him. His talent was underappreciated, and he is a good fellow.

    Ringo has been my Number One since the beginning! His smile, his positive attitude that he has been able to maintain in a world of ups and downs. There's a strength in him that's endured. Peace and love.
