Celebrating Ringo Starr’s 84th birthday

July 07, 2024

Today marks the birthday of Ringo Starr, The Beatles’s legendary drummer, whose unique style and charismatic presence have made him a legend in the world of music. Born Richard Starkey on July 7, 1940, in Liverpool, England, Ringo Starr rose to global fame with the Fab Four, helping to shape the sound of the 1960s and beyond with his musical talent.

As we celebrate Ringo's birthday this year, we reflect on a career that has spanned more than six decades. Beyond his iconic role in The Beatles, Ringo has enjoyed a successful solo career, releasing multiple albums and singles that showcase his versatility and enduring appeal. His music, characterised by its warmth and humour, continues to inspire and delight fans of all ages.

Ringo Starr is not only celebrated for his musical talents but also for his contributions to various humanitarian causes. His peace and love-filled messages, often shared with his trademark peace signs, resonate strongly in today’s world, advocating for kindness and understanding across the globe.

Today, fans around the world will no doubt be spinning classics like ‘With a Little Help from My Friends’ and ‘Yellow Submarine’, in which Ringo's distinctive voice and personality shine through. His ongoing All-Starr Band tours are a testament to his lasting appeal and ability to bring musicians and music lovers together.

As Ringo Starr celebrates another year, we are reminded of his profound impact not only as a musician but as a cultural icon who continues to inspire with his legacy of creativity, collaboration, and love.

Happy Birthday, Ringo! May your day be filled with peace, love, and rock 'n' roll!
