Billy Idol understood from a young age that the life of a drummer wasn’t for him, thanks to Ringo Starr, as the singer revealed to BBC Radio 4.

Idol revealed that upon seeing the Beatles, the singer wanted to be like John and Paul rather than be Ringo.

“I didn’t ever have guitar lessons,” Idol said, recalling the early days of his career. “I just taught myself. It really was just a way for me to have something to sing to. I did try to learn the drums at one point, but then I soon realized Ringo was at the back, you know? John and Paul were at the front of the Beatles, so maybe it’s better to write the song and play guitar, you know?”

So, when Idol was deciding what he wanted as a performer, the dynamics of the Beatles helped him realize who he wanted to be as an artist. Billy Idol chose to front his act rather than play the drums and sit in the back. So, in a way, Ringo convinced him not to be a drummer but to be like Lennon and McCartney, standing at the front of the stage.
