On a recent episode of BBC’s ‘The Rock Show,’ Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain shared who he considers to be his “rock god.” Who does McBrain consider to be a god in the music world? Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.
“I’ve chosen Ringo because he was the very first drummer that really influenced me in my genre of music,” said McBrain. “I started off listening to Dave Brubeck when I heard Joe Morello playing, but Ringo was my first hero.”
McBrain also revealed that he had a poster of Starr in his childhood bedroom and thought, “‘That is the man. That is the guy I wanna be like.'”
Who do you consider to be YOUR rock god? Do you think Ringo Starr gets enough recognition?
