Richard Starkey, better known as Ringo Starr, was born this day in 1940 at 9 Madryn Street, Dingle, Liverpool, England.
The last to join the Beatles, Ringo might have been the most loveable. Though he is often thought of as the weak link in the group, Ringo was (and is) a fantastic drummer, and without him there would have been no Fab Four.
He's touring now with his All-Starr Band and will be in my neck of the woods (Windsor, Ontario, Canada) this Friday. I'm tempted to go catch his show.
