Ringo Starr

Ringo Starr (born Richard Starkey) got his start drumming for another Liverpool group — Rory Storm and the Hurricanes — before he was asked to step into Pete Best’s vacant spot in the Beatles in 1962. But unlike his bandmates, Starr rarely contributed songs, and his lead vocals were mostly shoehorned into goofy covers like ‘Act Naturally’ and goofy Beatles originals like ‘Octopus’s Garden.’ After the Beatles broke up in 1970, Starr, like his bandmates, launched a solo career, peaking with a pair of No. 1 singles in 1973 — ‘Photograph’ and ‘You’re Sixteen,’ both of which featured assistance by his old pals — as well as a No. 2 album, ‘Ringo.’ Starr has also acted in movies (‘Give My Regards to Broad Street’) and TV (‘Shining Time Station’). He continues to tour with his revolving All-Starr Band.

The legendary drummer is probably best known for his career-defining work behind the kit for John Mellencamp in the ‘80s and ‘90s, which was followed by a similarly lengthy stint as the drummer for another famous John -- former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty-- a highly successful relationship that remains intact to this day.
