3 Books Every Ringo Starr Fan Should Read

Alongside Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and John Lennon, the charismatic and talented Ringo Starr changed rock and roll music forever. After stepping in for Pete Best as drummer for the Beatles in 1962, Starr helped keep the beat through until the band’s breakup in 1970.

Since then, Starr has enjoyed plenty of success as a solo artist, still embracing the songs and moments he shared with his former bandmates. The now 83-year-old talent still actively tours with his aptly-named All-Starr Band and continues to record music, including a new EP set for release this October.
