Ringo Starr Still Rocking At 70

(Gibson) As Ringo Starr prepares for another tour with his All Starr band, the Beatles drummer has been reminiscing a little with U.K. newspaper the Daily Mail.

Ringo explained why he still hits the road at 70 years of age. "I still love to play. I go down the front and sing 'Photograph' or whatever, then I get to go back to the drums and play with all these other musicians," he said. "It's a win-win situation. I get the chance to be both the entertainer and the musician. Everyone's a star, but I'm the big star. The band gets to play 12 numbers between them and I do 12 numbers."

Talking about the early days in Liverpool, Starr points out that The Beatles were lucky to have him. "It wasn't just that I was a big shot; I was a cool drummer," he said. "Brian Epstein asked if I would play lunchtime at the Cavern with them. That's how I got started." more on this story
