McCartney on Ringo –by Bruce Hilliard

Ric Brit Flag

He would say to us, “God, it’s been a hard day’s night.” We’d say, “Say that again.”

He would say to us, “God, it’s been a hard day’s night.” We’d say, “Say that again.”“Tomorrow Never Knows” is also one of his. According to Paul McCartney, Ringo talked in titles.

We had to follow him around the notebook and pencil. You never knew what he would say next.

McCartney says Ringo had a native wit. He didn’t know when he was being funny.

The three of us went to grammar school, Ringo didn’t. Ringo said he only went to school for three days because of this bad operation he had when he was a kid. Ringo had peritonitis (inflammation of the stomach lining). His stomach had a lot of scars on it. His parents were told that he would die age 3, so with Ringo everything was always a bonus.

“Yellow Submarine”, “With a Little Help From My Friends”, “Octopus’s Garden” and the hushed lullaby “Good Night” from The Beatles a.k.a. “The White Album” were some of his best known lead vocals with the Beatles.

He was responsible for a massive amount of percussion contribution to the rhythm section that backed the vocals of one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

Since 1989, Starr has toured with more than twelve variations of Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band.  He gets by with a little help from his friends.
