Ringo Starr

Richard Starkey, or Ringo Starr as he’s most commonly known, will always be primarily thought of as being the Beatles’ beat keeper. But, as he proved with smashes “Don’t Pass Me By,” “With a Little Help from My Friends,” and “Yellow Submarine,” he was also known to step up to the microphone from time to time.

When the Beatles’ broke up in 1970, Starr dove straight into a solo career, singing his way straight up the charts with “Photograph,” “You’re Sixteen,” “It Don’t Come Easy,” “Back Off Boogaloo,” and the “No No Song.” By 1989, he formed the touring Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band, which features performances of top hits from both Ringo and his rotating cast of guests—including members of the Eagles, the Band, the Who, and many others.

In 2011, readers of Rolling Stone magazine voted Starr the fifth-best drummer in history, and by 2015, he was personally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (following his Beatles nod 23 years earlier). Outside of music, this legend is an avid photographer and painter who often donates the proceeds of his work to charitable causes.
