Meh. If you have Russ, why do you need Ringo? And vice versa. Sounds like the smooth rock version. Joe should go back and listen to what he did 50 years ago.

Very enjoyable: but was the cameraman told not to show the keyboard player?

Why does Ringo need a backup drummer?
tHat's not why he's there; Ringo is sharing stage

(if ya think about it Bands have 5 guitar (and bass) players 2 or 3 Keyboards; As soon as Two drummers are used somebody thinks something's wrong; hell it's more for everybody; bands need three and four drummers. Just to make it fair

For some odd reason I want VB's @Vistalite Black thorough very thorough Opinion
On This.

It's clearly not as funky as the original and feels a little flat. I think a lot of the reason it doesn't sound as bouncy and funky is due to Leland Sklar... No doubt is he great -- nearly as outstanding as his beard, but his expertise with Ronstadt, Jackson Browne et al. with focused on being faultlessly smooth, not funky. If I was Ringo, I would have called in Bootsy, baby!
