There are two dates but I’m going Wednesday, June 18th, 2014 and it has been so long (early 00s) since I’ve seen young(ish) Starkey croaking and charming between other performers playing songs you never ever want to hear again

Would it be safe to say he is the least favored Beatle? I think so, drummers rarely get their props. His All Starr band has been a staple of music, nothing that dynamic nothing that bad just there, almost like a hobby to a formal mega act.
