Shanghai Surprise which Harrison also had a cameo in as a singer at a nightclub, the film featured Sean Penn
2. Sean Penn was in Mystic River with Kevin Bacon

I knew that without even looking anything up. ;D

I think the response from McCartney probably solidified that image:

Interviewer: Is Ringo the best drummer in the world?
Paul: He's not even the best drummer in the Beatles!

I'll be back.
You can't take anything that megalomaniacal jerk says seriously.  Paul thinks he was the only Beatle that really mattered.
Lennon said it, not McCartney.

All the better then  ;D

1.  Stravinsky's "Fire Bird Suite" appeared in the 1980 feature, Bird.
2.  Which co-starred David Hyde Pierce,
3.  Who voiced Silent Bob's brother on the Simpsons
4.  Which George Harrison also appeared on.

Well good, but actually I was asking Swipe to do it.  :)

It might actually be possible to do it with person to person conections too  :)

I don't know if that's possible, but I DO know how to connect him to Mozart.

Ah, I stand corrected.  Well done, mrbasehart.

Go on then, let's see the Mozart connection.

Because even I can't do that, at least not with any ease. ;)

1.  George Harrison was in a little Merseybeat group whose name escapes me.
2.  This obscure band released an album called Abbey Road.  Track #8 on this album ("Because") contains a harpsichord line that was adapted from Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.
3.  Beethoven's music was performed before Holy Roman Emperor Leopold II...
4.  ...whose predecessor, Joseph II, thought Mozart's music contained too many notes.

(Beethoven and Mozart also might have met each other at one point, but nobody really knows if they actually did).

And I didn't even have to do any research. :P

You can't take anything John said seriously, either, he was like Rivers Cuomo, changing his mind about everything every twenty minutes.

Either way, I think he's a better drummer than people give him credit for.

I have to agree with cameage.  Ringo is an excellent drummer and I'm pretty sure Lennon's statement was in jest.  Keep in mind that when the Beatles were performing live they couldn't hear themselves over the screaming girls.  Ringo had to keep time to nothing and pulled it off.  He also hates drum solos and it apparently took quite a bit of work to get him to do one on Abbey Road.

But likewise so it the reputation that he is a bad drummer, regardless of who it comes from. Nobody is seriously decrying his drumming, it's just a bit of light hearted mockery. :)

Very good by the way.  :clap:

Ok so who's next?

But not involving Neal Diamond?

1. In 1947 Al Jolson appeared on the Steven Allen Radio show on KNX  in Los Angeles to promote Jolson Sings Again, during which he made bitchy comments about TV to Allen.
2. Which is funny when you think that, for a time later on, Allen had a pretty popular television show, firstly The Tonight Show and then The Steve Allen ShowThe Ed Sullivan Show as well.
4. A few years after The King swung his pelvis about in front of the massive early TV cameras, a quartet of scousers also strutted their stuff for an adoring crowd on The Ed Sullivan Show. One of the four was a kid by the name of George Harrison.

Oh and I had to look up where Steve Allen ran into Jolson, but I knew that he had at some point. :)
