| Fresh from a nondescript Liverpudlian musical group known as Rory Storme and the Hurricanes, Ringo Starr made the quantum leap to superstardom in 1962 when he replaced Pete Best as drummer for the burgeoning Beatles. Starr was regarded by many music aficionados as the least creative of the foursome, though he may well have enjoyed the largest fan following — especially among young ladies who felt the urge to "mother" the diminutive Mr. Starr (though he appeared to be the baby of the group, Ringo was in fact the oldest of the Fab Four). In the Beatles' first two films, A Hard Day's Night (1964) and Help! (1965), most of the comedy material went to Ringo, whose Chaplinesque demeanor and droll, deadpan dialogue delivery paid off in big laughs. Upon the group's breakup in 1970, it was Ringo who fared best as a solo screen actor. He had already brightened up the dull proceedings of Candy (1968) and The Magic Christian (1970); after the Beatles' split, he was seen to good advantage as the Pope in Ken Russell's Lisztomania (1975), as one of Mae West's bewildered amours in Sextette (1978) and as a bumbling Cro-Magnon in Caveman (1979), in which he co-starred with his second wife, Barbara Bach. In 1973, Ringo produced the bizarre horror movie spoof Son of Dracula, appearing onscreen with fellow rock icon Harry Nilsson. A big draw all over again in the 1980s thanks to his All-Star Band tours, Ringo Starr remains a most welcome, if infrequent TV guest star; he has also shown up in several entertaining commercials, including a 1995 Pizza Hut spot in which he co-starred with ex-Monkees Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork.
- Drummer with the Beatles (1962-1970).
- Tours with group "Ringo Starr's All Starrs"
- Father of Zak Starkey (with Maureen), a featured drummer with the Who and daughter, Lee Starkey.
- Inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of Fame as a member of the Beatles January 20, 1988.
- He was not the original drummer for the Beatles. He replaced Pete Best after Best was fired by the other band members.
- He was the oldest in age to be a member of the Beatles, and the last to join the group, technically making him both the oldest and youngest "Beatle".
- Fully convinced the fame of the Beatles would be short-lived, he sent large amounts of money to his aunt to deposit in a bank account while he was on tour with the band. His intention was to start a hair dressing salon once the Beatles faded from public memory. To this day, he is known to be savvy with his finances, and even appeared in a TV commercial for an investment consulting service.
- Is left-handed, though he plays drums right-handed.
- Appointed an MBE in 1965.
- Though McCartney is the most successful ex-Beatle, Ringo actually had more solo US Top ten hits. (McCartney performed most of his Top Tens with Wings).
- Born and grew up in the Dingles section of Liverpool, England.
- Attended St. Silas School and Dingles Secondary Modern School.
- A single of his, "The No-No Song", was a song against drug abuse. But in a darkly ironic note, the song was banned from several radio stations because of the drug references.
- Wrote the song "Octopus's Garden" while on vacation. He claims to have got the idea for the song after conversing with a chef about octopi.
- In the mid 1970s he dated British singer-songwriter 'Lynsey de Paul' and appeared on a single she wrote for none other than Dame Vera Lynn.
- Got the last name "Starr" from his birth name, Starkey. He got "Ringo" because he always wore lots of rings on all his fingers.
- "Ringo Starr" was a natural stage name for a young man who'd grown up loving Western movies (he particularly admired Gene Autry, the "singing cowboy"). Considered moving to Texas, before joining the Beatles.
- Bought Tittenhurst Park from John Lennon (Lennon's last English home), when John and Yoko decided to move to America; the deal came complete with Ascot Sound Studios, located on the grounds, and home of several albums ("Plastic Ono Band", "Imagine", and "Fly").
- Got his first set of drums as a present from his stepfather, who brought them back from London. Was able to turn professional with a £25 loan from his Grandfather Starkey, to make the deposit on a better set.
- Missed several years of school, because of illness growing up. Learned to read and write with the help of a neighbor girl, who became his babysitter.
- Was the only Beatle to willingly accept Yoko Ono in John's life (and consequently theirs); he offered them the use of his London apartment, while John and Cynthia Lennon settled their divorce. Yoko tried to return Ringo's kindness over the years, and years later, when John was murdered, Ringo and future wife Barbara Bach flew to New York, to keep Yoko company.
- He is a strict vegetarian, and suggested that his bandmates, Paul McCartney and George Harrison should become vegetarians, as well.
- According to George Harrison, he unintentionally inspired a number of songs by his off-the-cuff remarks. For example, after a long session on The Beatles' first film, he was heard to say, "It's been a hard day's night." That became the title of the film and subsequently the song, "A Hard Day's Night".
- He is a massive fan of the comedy troupe Monty Python, and even appeared on an episode of _Monty Python's Flying Circus_(1969) .
- In 1985 he accepted the role of Locke Walls on "The Guiding Light" (1952) but pulled out at the last minute. The role was recast with Jeremy Slate
- Was the first Beatle to "drop out" of their visit to India in the spring of 1968, to study with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Despite packing some home comforts (like cans of baked beans), he couldn't handle the spicy cooking the camp offered, and was missing his family.
- He was the oldest member of the Beatles.
