Ringo Starr will always be best known as the drummer for The Beatles. He played with the rock legends from 1962 - 1970. When The Beatles disbanded, Starr went solo with two projects. The first, called "Sentimental Journey," featured covers of pre-rock standards. The second, "Beacoups of Blues," was a country music collection.
Starr then scored Top 10 hits with two non-album singles, "It Don't Come Easy" in 1971 and "Back Off Boogaloo," in 1972. In 1973, with assistance from the three other ex-Beatles, he made "Ringo," which featured two No. 1 hits, "Photograph" and "You're Sixteen." "Oh My My," a Top 10 hit, was also included. Almost as successful was the 1974 followup, "Goodnight Vienna," which featured the hits "Only You" and "No No Song."
Starr continued to release albums through the '80s. In 1989 he began to tour with his All Starr Band.
In 1992, Starr signed to Private Music and released a new studio album, "Time Takes Time." "Vertical Man," his first album on the Mercury label, followed in 1998, along with a disc culled from his performance on the VH1 Storytellers series. Starr's first seasonal effort, "I Wanna Be Santa Claus," appeared a year later.
Starr and his band will be embarking on their next global tour kicking off in February 2015 with a stop in Vegas. Starr explains, "We have so much fun playing together, we don't want it to end!"
