A look at the members of The Beatles.


Richard Starkey is better known by his stage name Ringo Starr. He was the last band member to join The Beatles. Born on 7th July 1940, in Liverpool, England, Ringo was very ill as a child and sufered from appendicitis andpleurisy. He played in a number of bands before meeting John and Paul while they were on tour in Hamburg. He eventually replaced Pete Best as the drummer.

Ringo sang at least one song on each Beatles album, most notably on “Yellow Submarine” and “With A Little Help From My Friends”. His unusual expressions such as “a hard day’s night” and “tomorrow never knows” were developed into successful songs by the band. Ringo went down with another illness in 1964, forcing him to pull out of an international tour. As a result, he was replaced by a session drummer. He has often admitted that he was worried about being replaced permanently because he wasn’t very good, but his band mates insisted he was a vital part of The Beatles.

After the end of The Beatles as a group, Ringo also went onto a solo career. Other ventures for the musician include starting a furniture company and setting up his own record label. He is also well-known for narrating the popular children’s TV programme Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends.
