Ringo Starr Biography
Ringo Starr, born Richard Starkey, was the drummer in the
Beatles from 1962 to 1970 and thus one of the most famous musicians of
the '60s. Though the least prominent member of the quartet, he
distinguished himself as an occasional singer of good-natured material
and as an actor. Upon the group's split, Starr went solo with two
novelty projects: the first, an album called Sentimental Journey, found
him covering pre-rock standards, and the second, Beaucoups of Blues,
was a country music collection.
Starr then scored Top Ten hits with two non-album singles, It Don't
Come Easy in 1971 and Back Off Boogaloo in 1972. In 1973 he paired
with producer Richard Perry and, with assistance from the three other
ex-Beatles, made Ringo, which featured two number one hits,
Photograph and You're Sixteen. Oh My My, a Top Ten hit, was also
included. Almost as successful was the 1974 follow-up, Goodnight
Vienna, which featured the hits Only You and No No Song.
Starr continued to release albums through 1981, though with diminishing
success. His 1983 album Old Wave did not find a U.S. distributor. Starr
was also suffering from the excesses of his lifestyle, but by the late
'80s he had cleaned up, and in 1989 he toured with his All-Starr
Band. In 1992, he signed to Private Music and released a new studio
album, Time Takes Time. Vertical Man, his first album for Mercury,
followed in 1998, as did a disc culled from his performance on the VH1
Storytellers series. Starr's first seasonal effort, I Wanna Be Santa
Claus, appeared a year later. Two studio records appeared during the
early 2000s: Ringorama from 2003 and Choose Love two years later. In
2006 he made a guest appearance on Jerry Lee Lewis' album Last Man
Standing and toured with another edition of his All-Starr Band, this
time featuring Sheila E. and Edgar Winter. The 2007 release PBS
Soundstage Live featured a show recorded two years earlier in Chicago.
