    Ringo Starr’s first show as the Beatles’ new drummer was nearly ruined by a hostile audience that wanted him out of the band. Although he was finally accepted as one of the Fab Four, he was still targeted by those who did not wish him well. French-Canadian separatists in Montreal threatened to kill him. Mexican Federales tried to lock him up and throw away the key. And a decades-long running gag that he wasn’t creatively on par with his fellow Liverpool lads nearly undermined his legacy. It wasn’t until Ringo conquered his own beaucoups of blues that he got the respect he deserved and the world recognized him for what he is: in the words of his old mate John, “the greatest.”

Killer Content

One of my top 3 podcasts of a time. Even the ones about people you don't listen to are interesting. Keep up the good work Jake.

This is episode I'll be thinking about for days

I've always loved this podcast. It was actually the very first podcast I ever listened to right before the second season came out. I remember listening to the whole first season that night. I have never had a bad thing to say about the show. I even enjoyed the episodes about musicians I don't really care for. But you hit on everything with this episode. Tom Petty's death was such a tragedy and a huge loss to the music world and you could really feel it in the way you told it. You need to do one on Chris Cornell when I heard he died it was such a gut punch. You are the one person that would tell his story the right way just you did with Tom Petty. Keep the awesome work!! 🤘🏻🎸

So happy I found this one!

This is such a great show! Well-researched and told stories, surprising details, and Jake’s voice is all I want to listen to all day. Badlands is also good - highly recommend!

could have been great.

I would really like to listen but the profanity is too much and not necessary. Really unfortunate how far we have fallen as a society.
