Ringo Starr, Drummer, Singer, Songwriter, Man of Our Times
We hear Ringo as the lead singer on songs with The Beatles from "Yellow Submarine", "I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends" from Sgt Pepper's. He is the singer and the songwriter on "Don't Pass Me By" from The Beatles White Album and "Octopus's Garden" from Abbey Road. Ringo has produced a new album in 2010 Y Not and we hear two tracks with Paul McCartney playing bass and singing. His deep heart and personality shine forth in the 10 new songs he has written with various co-writers from Van Dyke Parks to Dave Stewart. We close with a quote from John Lennon about Ringo's unique genius.
