Quoted @shinola90

@CTowersCBS Literally cannot believe you are digging yourself into the "Paul is actually a bad musician" hole. Keep going, I'm close.

"Paul McCartney, the most important bass player of all time, was a bad drummer, especially during his time with the Beatles" = "Paul McCartney is actually a bad musician." Interesting reaction! https://t.co/V5pTDQTvO9

Quoted @pedromvg

@CTowersCBS What a joke , He wasn’t even the best drummer in The Beatles

I don't know how this became a thing, but ... Paul's drumming was really, really bad. Listen closely to "Dear Prudence" or "Back In The USSR" and you can hear him constantly hitting the sides of the drum head. It's bad. https://t.co/nXqTf1D18k

But real talk, Ringo's impact on the Beatles' sound is totally under-appreciated. The early, iconic Beatles sound is as much about his drumming as anything else. And the songs where he isn't drumming, you can really tell. They should've let him re-record "Dear Prudence"

John Lennon was an abuser who literally wrote anthems about being an abuser. This is also why the contrarian "Actually, Rubber Soul is the best Beatles album" takes fall apart.

Quoted @bigTvassallo

@CTowersCBS I agree. He's the best. Besides George. George is the best. Maybe I don't agree...

The thing we have to be able to agree on is that John was the worst Beatle. https://t.co/Gf5o3Td63o

Quoted @BurrisDylan

@CTowersCBS I dunno about best but I think he makes top 5 easy

If we're keeping it a buck, Billy Preston is the second-best Beatle. https://t.co/msEudqXaD6

Quoted @ryaneggersjr

@CTowersCBS just maintain your "I don't like The Beatles" take and avoid any further discussions

I've had a lot of contrarian takes in my time, but this is certainly not a position I've ever held. https://t.co/rDWbldjzWj

@CTowersCBS lol what a dog shit justification.

lol imagine getting mad at it https://t.co/rSvUnhpwd3

At the absolute least, there's no question Ringo Starr was the best hang among the Beatles. Not sure I'd really want to spend more than 5 minutes with any of the rest, but I'll take a weekend road trip with Ringo.

Quoted @PanasonicDX4500

@CTowersCBS No, the first drummer was the Best Beatle.

I've been owned. https://t.co/1JxyL1a4gC

Quoted @BTRowland

@CTowersCBS good lord chris

Look, he wasn't the most talented, but I think he's wildly under-appreciated as a drummer. But most importantly, John was a crappy person, Paul has some pretty unflattering moments, and George just seemed like a tremendous bore. This is a Ringo stan account. https://t.co/99Y2gFjR56

A contrarian take I think I actually believe: Ringo is the best Beatle.

Happy birthday SIR RICHARD alias RINGO. Have a great day my long time buddy! - Paul https://t.co/qVMxQ1J3hq

The only Cancel Culture i believe in is the Culture of Canceling the Fantastic Beasts and Cursed Child from Harry Potter canon and also ignoring everything JK Rowling has said since the last book was published.

When I say Pedro is the GOAT pitcher, there’s exactly two (2) counters that I’ll even entertain: Satchel Paige and Bob Gibson. Every other answer is wrong and you should feel bad about being wrong

DiMaggio hit a weak single up the middle in the TENTH inning off Paige and scouts were like “Whoa nelly that kid’s the real deal!” 

Paige didn’t play in the MLB for 12 more years after this. https://t.co/5ebT5MlUo8 https://t.co/aZqylP6E6X

I’m not going to defend everything Rita Skeeter did. Her methods were unethical. But she was the only one telling the truth about Albus Dumbledore. She’s presented as a villain for speaking unpopular truths. Cancel culture run amok!

Also, we're going to have a discussion about how JK Rowling is a free-speech warrior now, but she had Hermione literally trap a journalist she didn't like in a glass jar and blackmailed her. #JusticeForRitaSkeeter @netw3rk
