Ringo Starr in the news Plus, Our Top 10 "Sunny" by Bryan Adams hits #1 in our page views this week!
Of course, it helps if you happen to be Ringo Starr, a living part of rock and roll history and former member of that “other” band. No, not Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, as Ringo joked to the Cynthia Woods Pavilion audience on Friday night, that other, other band; the long-haired (for the time) four-piece band that changed the face of rock and roll, popular music, and pop culture in general.
Ringo isn't really on tour to make money and promote a new record. He’s more concerned with just being Ringo and sharing music and his life-long philosophy of peace and love. You've got to admire this, especially from someone who could be tuned out and relaxing on his own personal island, counting his money for the rest of his days without a care in the world.
Ringo isn't on this quest alone. He brought a group of friends along who've written their own pages of rock and roll history. Ringo Starr’s All Star Band is a revolving line-up of legendary musicians who've joined him on tour to help spread the word of peace, love, and the simple joy of music. The 2014 line-up of the All Starr Band includes Steve Lukather from Toto, Gregg Rolie, one of the founding members of Santana and Journey, legendary musician, songwriter, record producer, and recording engineer Todd Rundgren, founder and lead singer of Mr. Mister, Richard Page, Warren Ham from the bands Bloodrock and AD, and Gregg Bissonette, who among others has played with David Lee Roth.
