Apparently, the Modern Drummer community loves their post-Beatles drummers. When we reached out on our Facebook page to query you about your favorite drummers on the solo albums of Paul, John, George, and Ringo, we received quite a flurry of comments—even one from drumming icon Mike Portnoy. As always, thanks for sharing your views, and please look out for future Readers’ Platform questions on Facebook. Fab!
