In April 1978, Ringo Starr was behind an hour-long TV special simply called 'Ringo.' Built around a 'Prince and the Pauper'-style premise, the show looked a lot like many other variety programs from the era. Right down to its eternal cheesiness.
Some Beatles are greater than others. And some Beatles solo albums rank right up there with the band's best records. It should come as a surprise to no one that John Lennon and Paul McCartney made the best of them. And that George Harrison was responsible fo
It's not clear what Joe Walsh is working on exactly, but the lineup he's assembled is certainly intriguing. The Eagles guitarist teased fans with a photo that indicates something very cool will be coming soon.
Few things seemed more incongruous on children's television in 1989 than Ringo Starr's time on PBS' show, 'Shining Time Station' (apart, of course, from when George Carlin took over for Ringo a year later). Starr is about to make the year spent as 'Mr. Conductor' look perfectly normal later this year when he lends his talents to a Cartoon Network special of 'The Powerpuff Girls.'
Last July Ringo Starr celebrated his 72nd birthday with a stage full of players familar to fans of rock and country music. This star-studded performance will now be released on DVD. Look for 'Ringo at the Ryman' to arrive on March 11.
Harry Nilsson was one of a kind. Ace songwriter, amazing singer and outrageous drinking comrade to the stars are just a few of the fine things on his resume. In 1971, he recorded an album called 'The Point,' which accompanied an animated film of the same name.

He sang lead on
In the episode 'Brush With Greatness,' Bart uncovers several portraits that Marge made of Ringo Starr when she was still in high school and crushing on the Beatle. She explains that she had sent Starr one of her portraits hoping for an honest opinion but
The tapes of Rory Storm and the Hurricanes that surfaced recently do not feature Ringo Starr. That's the word coming from Starr, who was Storm's drummer before leaving to join the Beatles shortly before their recording career began in 1962.
Before there were the Beatles, Richard Starkey was a group called Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. The drummer, who would go on to change his name to Ringo Starr, recorded with the band before joining the Fab Four, and now some of those early recordings have surfaced after more than 50 years.
