Ringo Starr

Happy birthday, Ringo Starr! The Beatles drummer was born Richard Starkey in Liverpool, England on July 7, 1940. When the Beatles first formed in 1960, Starr was a member of another Liverpool group, Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. After achieving moderate success with them, he was asked to join the Beatles to replace their drummer, Pete Best. Soon after, Starr was on the fast track to fame in what would become one of the biggest and most influential bands in music history.
