2015: The Year of the Starr
Happy New Year, everyone!
Ringo Starr has recently announced some exciting news for this new year, including a new album and tour! The former Beatle said the LP has been recorded and mixed and also teased of concert dates with his All Starr Band in February and March of this year.
In addition to a new album and tour, Backbeat Books is releasing a book on the recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee entitled Ringo: With a Little Help, written by Michael Seth Starr (no relation to Ringo). The book is set to be released on Ringo’s 75th birthday, July 7!
Ringo: With a Little Help is the first in-depth biography of Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, who kept the beat for an entire generation and who remains a rock icon over fifty years since the Beatles took the world by storm. With a Little Help traces the entire arc of Ringo’s remarkable life and career, from his sickly childhood to his life as The World’s Most Famous drummer to his triumphs, addictions, and emotional battles following the breakup of the Beatles as he comes to terms with his legacy.
