Ringo Starr And His All Starr Band

Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band (Steve Lukather, Richard Page, Gregg Rolie, Todd Rundgren and Gregg Bissonette) is the same line up he has played with since 2012, with the addition of Warren Ham, who will replace longtime All Starr Mark Rivera who is on tour with Billy Joel. “I love playing with this band,” Ringo said, “and I can’t wait to get back out and play with them again.”

ABOUT RINGO STARR: On January 20, 2014 Ringo's musical legacy was celebrated when The David Lynch Foundation honored Ringo with the "Lifetime of Peace & Love Award". The event included a star-studded tribute performing from Ringo’s extensive catalog. January 26 saw Ringo perform his song “Photograph” on the GRAMMYS, followed by him jumping on the kit during his old band mate, Paul McCartney’s performance. The two then performed together again the following evening, this time for several songs for the CBS taping of The Beatles Tribute celebrating the 50th Anniversary of their first U.S. visit and appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. It will be broadcast on the exact date, February 9. In February 2014, Simon & Shuster published "Octopus's Garden", a children's book based on Ringo's lyrics. This book comes on the heels of December of last year's PHOTOGRAPH, the Genesis Publications book (http://www.genesis-publications.com/photograph-by-ringo-starr-the-signed-limited-edition/). PHOTOGRAPH was first released as an e-book in conjunction with The GRAMMY Museum exhibit "Ringo: Peace & Love," a record-breaking exhibit that opened in June 2013 and closed late April 2014. The exhibit had more than 90,000 visitors and was the first major exhibit to focus on a drummer. (http://www.grammymuseum.org/on-display/special-exhibits/ringo-peace-love) 2013 also saw Ringo tour with his All Starr Band, first in February to the Pacific Rim and then in October in Latin America, concluding with two Stateside shows at the Palms in Las Vegas. In September 2013 Ringo was awarded the prestigious French Medal of Honor, being appointed Commander of Arts & Letters in recognition of his musical and artistic contributions. Ringo's most recent solo release was Ringo 2012 (Hip-O Records/UMe). In January 2013 UMe released the live DVD "Ringo at the Ryman." April 20, 2013, in conjunction with Record Store Day, UMe released a Ringo Starr seven-inch vinyl singles collection, featuring “Photograph,” “It Don’t Come Easy” and “(It’s All Down To) Goodnight Vienna.”
