Ringo Starr rose to international fame as The Beatles' drummer, then launched a long-running solo career following the band's split in 1970. Born as "Richard Starkey" on July 7, 1940, he was raised in the inner-city neighborhoods of Liverpool and joined the Beatles in 1962, at the personal invitation of John Lennon. After The Beatles' breakup, Ringo Starr released two solo albums within the same year: Sentimental Journey, featuring cover versions of his favorite standards, and the country record Beaucoups of Blues. However, it was his third album, 1973's Ringo, that proved his most successful. Full of big-budget pop and featuring contributions from former bandmates John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison, Ringo reached Number 2 in the US and produced the chart-topping singles "Photograph" and "You're Sixteen." "Oh My My" and "No No Song" also became big hits in the US, laying the foundation for a long, diverse solo career that includes 20 solo albums, collaborations with artists like Tom Petty and Joe Walsh, and countless tour dates with his All-Starr Band. Ringo Starr was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2015 and continued working with his All-Starr Band not only on the road, but also in the studio. Members of the group appeared on his nineteenth solo album, Give More Love, in 2019. What's My Name followed in 2019, featuring a collaboration with Paul McCartney on the John Lennon song "Grow Old With Me." Maintaining his prolific pace even during his older years, Ringo Starr returned in 2021 with the star-studded Zoom In EP, which had been recorded at the musician's home studio during the previous year.
