Ringo Starr is a famous English musician, songwriter and singer, best-known as the drummer of the famous band, ‘The Beatles’.

When ‘The Beatles’ was formed, he was a member of another band called ‘Rory Storm and the Hurricanes’. After receiving moderate acclaim with that group, he joined ‘The Beatles’, replacing Pete Best – it was a move that changed his life for good! With his inclusion in the group, the band peaked with their albums on most international music charts and although his contribution to music with the band was not lauded as expected, he at least became a well-recognized figure on his own. Apart from music, this famous personality has been featured in a number of documentaries, television shows and has also hosted the television series, ‘Thomas & Friends’.
