#Fact
1In a curious coincidence, Ringo is the actual Japanese word for apple. "Apple" was also The Beatles' record label founded in 1968.
2Profiled in the book "The Big Beat--Conversations with Rock's Great Drummers" (1991), edited by Max Weinberg.
3Author Neil Gaiman is a huge fan of Starr.
4Sixteen years before they met and married, his wife Barbara Bach was in the audience at The Beatles' 1965 Shea Stadium concert.
5"Yellow Submarine" was The Beatles' only #1 single with Starr as lead vocalist.
6While he owns property in several countries, he is officially a British citizen residing in Monaco (2001).
7His brother-in-law is Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh.
8Phil Collins states Ringo as his biggest influence as a drummer and songs such as "That's All" (by Genesis), "Thru' These Walls" and "We Said Hello Goodbye" deliberately copied Ringo's style of drumming. Collins said he particularly admired Starr's "great rolls" and "unbelievably individualistic fills" in "Ticket to Ride", his "complicated" fills in "A Day in the Life" and "the drags and his way of phrasing just slightly after the beat on the toms" in "Strawberry Fields Forever".
9Friends with Keith Moon. The two shared a house in California in the mid-1970s with John Lennon and Harry Nilsson, while they worked on each other's records.
10Starr cites drummers Jim Keltner and Cozy Cole as major influences on his career as The Beatles' drummer. Starr and Keltner performed as a team at The Concert for Bangladesh (1972), and Keltner played drums on Starr's "Rotogravure" album.
11Starr mystified many of his contemporaries with his practice of draping light towels over his snare drum in order to deaden the characteristic timbre of his instrument. He famously removed the front skin of his bass drum and stuffed the cavity with cushions to deepen the punch of the bass sound.
12In his time as a member of The Beatles, Starr single-handedly consolidated "Ludwig" as the drum set of choice among popular bands of his era.
13He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 1975 North Vine Street in Hollywood, California on February 8, 2010.
14Inducted into the Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame in 2002.
15Was originally hired as a member of The Beatles for a salary of £25 a week, with the promise of a full partnership in the band in time. The promise was kept, and after the band began to have hit records, Starr's mother discovered the top of his dresser covered with money (wondering at first if it was all come by honestly), and opened a savings account for him. Nonetheless, Starr's initial £25 salary was never discontinued, and he would pick it up every week from NEMS (Brian Epstein's management company). He used it for pocket money.
16The 2009 Sunday Times List estimated his net worth at $196 million.
17First of The Beatles to become a grandfather upon the birth of son Zak Starkey's daughter, Tatia Jayne Starkey, in 1985.
18While recording "Stop and Smell the Roses" at Cherokee Studios, he was joined by two former members of The Beatles and their wives. John Lennon and Yoko Ono, as well as Paul McCartney and Linda McCartney, came into Cherokee to collaborate with Ringo on the solo album. Ronnie Wood from The Rolling Stones also collaborated, adding guitar, bass, saxophone, keyboards and back-up vocals.
19In April 1963, Ringo purchased a slightly used drum kit at Drum City, a local outlet. In exchange for payment, their manager Brian Epstein agreed to paste the distributor's "dropped T" logo as well as the manufacturer's name, "Ludwig", on the drum. The logo, the "large T" in Beatles, was adopted into their trademark in 1969.
20He and The Beatles were awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 7080 Hollywood Boulevard.
21"Stop and Smell the Roses" was engineered and mixed by Bruce Robb in association with Bruce Robb Productions.
22Two of his biggest solo hits, "It Don't Come Easy" and "Photograph", featured ex-bandmate George Harrison on guitar and backing vocals.
23The first song he had a hand in writing for an album by The Beatles was "What Goes On", from the album "Rubber Soul" (1965) (which he co-wrote with John Lennon and Paul McCartney). He began his own first song "Don't Pass Me By" years earlier, but it did not appear until the "White Album" (1968).
24The first song he sang with The Beatles, as far as actual album cuts go, was a cover of The Shirelles' classic "Boys".
25(November 11, 2004) The Beatles were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame for their outstanding contribution to British music and integral part of British music culture.
26Played drums on several songs by Paul McCartney on the album "Pipes of Peace" (1983).
27Was the first member of The Beatles 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 could not handle the spicy cooking the camp offered, and was missing his family.
28In 1985, he accepted the role of Locke Walls on Guiding Light (1952) but pulled out at the last minute. The role was recast with Jeremy Slate.
29Is a longtime fan of the comedy troupe Monty Python and even appeared on an episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969).
30According to George Harrison, Starr unintentionally inspired a number of songs by his witty 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 was approved by the studio as the title of the film and subsequently the song, "A Hard Day's Night". John Lennon affirmed this in his 1980 Playboy interview, mentioning that "Ringo-isms" had supplied the titles of "A Hard Day's Night" and "Tomorrow Never Knows".
31Is a strict vegetarian, as is former bandmate Paul McCartney.
32Was the only member of The Beatles 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.
33Missed 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.
34Got 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 a deposit on a better drum set.
35Bought Tittenhurst Park estate from John Lennon (Lennon's last English home), when John and Yoko Ono 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"). He renamed the facility Startling Studios. Judas Priest planned to record their album "British Steel" there, but preferred the acoustics of the house itself (which they had leased).
36"Ringo Starr" was a natural stage name for a young man who had grown up loving Western movies (he particularly admired Gene Autry, the "singing cowboy"). Considered moving to Texas before joining The Beatles.
37Got the last name "Starr" from his birth name, Starkey. He got "Ringo" because he liked to wear rings on all his fingers.
38In the mid-1970s, he was involved with British singer-songwriter Lynsey de Paul and appeared on a single she wrote for Dame Vera Lynn.
39Wrote 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.
40A 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.
41Before becoming an official member of The Beatles in 1962, he played many gigs with them, guesting when Pete Best was not available. Also made one recording with them, backing a singer named Wally, before he joined.
42Born and grew up in the Dingles section of Liverpool, England. Attended St. Silas School and Dingles Secondary Modern School.
43Though Paul McCartney is the most successful former member of The Beatles, Ringo actually had more solo U.S. Top Ten hits (McCartney performed most of his Top Ten hits with Wings).
44He and the other members of The Beatles were awarded MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1965 Queen's Birthday Honours List for their services to music. John Lennon returned his MBE in protest in 1969 over the Vietnam War. Paul McCartney was awarded Knight Bachelor of the Order of the British Empire in the 1997 Queen's New Years Honours List for his services to music.
45Is naturally left-handed but his grandmother corrected him and now writes right-handed. However, he plays left-handed with a right-handed drum set and makes unusual accents and stops.
46He is three months older than John Lennon, who founded The Beatles, and the last to join the group, technically making him both the oldest and youngest Beatle.
47The Beatles had several drummers before Starr joined. Pete Best had been with them for two years, when he was fired after failing the band's audition for George Martin at EMI.
48Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Beatles on January 20, 1988.
49Had three children with Maureen Starkey: Sons Zak Starkey (a featured drummer with The Who) and Jason (born August 19, 1967) and daughter Lee (born November 17, 1970).
50Leader of "Ringo Starr's All Starr Band".
51Drummer with The Beatles (1962-1970).

#Quote
1[at a celebration in his honor on January 20, 2014] It's a weird place to be this evening. All this praise is overwhelming really. It's great to look out and see all these people I recognize and three of them are meditating... I have to play something from the drums so you can see I can still hold the sticks.
2Everything the government touches turns to crap.
3When we came out, we were this big crazy pop band with these weird haircuts - which weren't really that weird. But that is what they said. We got lucky.
4The music industry is still musicians playing music. If it has changed in any way, it is that nobody who really cares about music is running the industry. In the '80s, accountants ended up running it, and they still are. The record industry has fallen apart. But we are on to the new age, a digital one.
5I was blessed with great timing. The other blessing that makes my drumming individual is that I was born left-handed. But my grandmother turned me into a right-handed person, so I'm ambidextrous. If I throw anything - play cricket or golf - it's done left-handed. But I write and cut with my left hand. I'm a weird handy guy.
6[2012] I've been asked to write an autobiography of myself, but they really only want those eight years. And I say, "But there are 10 volumes before we get to that, and 20 afterwards.".
7[on filming Let It Be (1970)] The police came to stop us, and I was on the roof: "Come on, drag me off!". It would be so dramatic, and the damn cop wouldn't drag me off!
8Peace and love, peace and love. It's up to you. I'm always doing it.
9[on downloading individual songs] It's a different time, and I'm afraid to say that's what I do. If you made a record, I'd probably pick out tracks that I like and download that. That's just how it is. We have to go with that because it's changed.
10I love the modern technology now. I was a little opposed to it - "Oh, in my day, we used to have a donkey turning the wheel, and two guys chewing tape to make it soft.".
11I don't want to go back anywhere. I want to deal with what's in front of me now to the best of my abilities, and sometimes that's not very good. But a lot of the days it is really great.
12I had this dream at 13 to play drums, nothing else, play drums. And when I got to play the drums, when I finally got a set when I was nearly 18, I wanted to play with good people and I started playing with the best band at the time, and then the next best band and then the biggest band, the best band of all. That's how it's always worked for me. I just wanna play, I wanna support the band. I love the band mentality. I love playing with other musicians. I'm not the one who can sit in the back room and practise, but if you can play piano and guitar I'll play with you all night. I don't like it as a solo gig, where you're just banging away. That's why I never did drum solos, there's really no need for them.
13I bought one record once because of the drums, and that was Cozy Cole doing "Topsy". But all the records I bought were for the whole record. It's not like I was searching out drummers and that. Al Jackson was great, of course. It's always been the whole band and the singer that's really excited me.
14We've known Bob [Bob Dylan] since the early '60s and if he's playing L.A., I go and see him. It's just one of those things. He is a giant in my mind.
15The '70s wasn't bad. I thought the '80s was all synthesised, even the drums, and there were weird people playing the drums.
16[2011] When I started, there was rock, there was pop, there was country. That was about all. And now it's divided into 30 categories. Now I don't know one from the other.
17My stepdad was great, he taught me about Sarah Vaughan, Billy Eckstine, people like that. I learnt all the music I had from Bill Haley in 1954, Frankie Laine and on.
18Now I've realized to make the music I like there's no real reason to go to a studio. The other day, we were downloading an Echoplex machine and you just download the damn thing! I've been through quite a lot of technology, you know, but... I have two bits of wood in my hand and I hit those buggers and I love it!
19[on reaching age 70] As far as I'm concerned, in my head, I'm 24. That's just how it is. The number, yeah, it's high. But I just felt I've got to celebrate it. I'm on my feet and I'm doing what I love to do, and I'm in a profession, as a musician, where we can go on for as long as we can go on. I'm not hiding from it, you know.
20... it's well-documented, in 1964 that old Bill Ludwig, he presented it to me. I bought these Ludwig drums, and in the shop in England, the guy wanted to take the sign out, but I love everything American, the music and the instruments. So I made him leave the sign on. So I was a running commercial--on Sullivan [Ed Sullivan's The Ed Sullivan Show (1948)], and all that touring of America, it said "Ludwig" drums.
21... [Beatlemania]'s always on. There's nothing we can do about that. What's more interesting to me is that our records are still coming out. And they're the same records and the new generation gets to hear them, and as far as that's concerned, that's the most important thing to me. The music we make, it's still going on.
22I'm probably the best rock 'n' roll drummer on earth. I say that now because I used to be embarrassed to speak up for myself.
23We were the first generation that didn't go into the army. I missed the call up by, like, 10 months, and so we were allowed, as these teenagers, not to be regimented and turn into these musicians.
24I never studied anything, really. I didn't study the drums. I joined bands and made all the mistakes onstage.
25I think the most exciting thing is that you expect people our age to know the music, but actually a lot of kids know the music, and if anything is left, we have left really good music, and that's the important part, not the mop-tops or whatever.
26I've never been able to sit round on my own and play drums, practice in the back room, never been able to. I've always played with other musicians. It's how I play, there's no joy for me in playing on my own, bashing away. I need a bass, a piano, guitar, whatever, and then I can play.
27I remember the day [son Zak Starkey] was born. It was the first time I'd felt totally useless. There was [Maureen Starkey] having our baby. She kept on crying "Help!" and I kept asking "How?".
28[on is marriage to Maureen Cox [aka Maureen Starkey] She's just sort of ordinary, she's from Liverpool. And the genuine fans wrote in saying, you know, "If you are going with her, good luck and I hope you're happy.".
29I don't like talking. It's how I'm built. Some people gab all day and some play it smogo. I don't mind talking or smiling, it's just I don't do it very much. I haven't got a smiling face or a talking mouth.
30I'd like to end up sort of unforgettable.
31[on meeting Elvis Presley in 1965] The saddest part is that, years and years later, we found out that he tried to have us banished from America, because he was very big with the FBI. That's very sad to me, that he felt so threatened that he thought, like a lot of people, that we were bad for American youth. This is Mr. Hips, the man, and he felt we were a danger. I think that the danger was mainly to him and his career.
32[on his early drumming years with The Beatles] I started to be an engineer but I banged me thumb on the first day. I became a drummer because it was the only thing I could do. But whenever I hear another drummer I know I'm no good. [John Lennon] taught me the song I sing. I can only play on the off beat because John can't keep up on the rhythm guitar. I'm no good on the technical things but I'm good with all the motions, swinging my head, like. That's because I love to dance but you can't do that on the drums. I figure we're good for another four years. I don't want to invest me money in stocks or anything. I just want to have it and draw 20 or 30 quid a week. The main thing is, I don't ever want to go back to work.
