Ringo Starr and His 11th All Starr Band Return to Hard Rock Live on July 15

Ringo Starr and his 11th All Starr Band return to Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Thursday, July 15 at 8 p.m.  Tickets are on sale, now. 

With a new decade, comes a fresh band featuring Edgar Winter, Gary Wright and Gregg Bissonette returning on drums with All Starr newcomers Rick Derringer, Richard Page (Mr. Mister) and Wally Palmar (Romantics).

Since 1989, Ringo Starr’s All Starr tours have rocked sold out venues with great musicians who share Starr’s love of performing. Each All Starr member  lends his most popular songs to Ringo’s already impressive hit list which includes such classics as “With A Little Help From My Friends,” “Don’t Pass Me By,” “Octopus’ Garden,” “Photograph,” “It Don’t Come Easy,” “Back Off Boogaloo,” “You’re Sixteen (You’re Beautiful And You’re mine),” “Don’t Go Where the Road Don’t Go,” “The No No Song” and “Never Without You.”

At age 17, Starr joined the Eddie Clayton Skiffle Band. In 1959, he hooked up with the Raving Texans, which later became Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. In 1962, while playing a summer gig with Storm, Starr was asked to join The Beatles and on August 18, 1962, Ringo Starr officially became a Beatle and his fame skyrocketed.

Since then, Starr has enjoyed a successful and dynamic solo career as a singer, songwriter and drummer, an active musical collaborator, and as an actor. Drawing inspiration from classic blues, soul, country, honky-tonk and rock ‘n’ roll, Starr continues to play an important role in modern music with his solo recording and touring.

In 1970, Starr released his first solo record, entitled Sentimental Journey.  The following year, Starr released Beaucoups Of Blues, a country-western album that he recorded with Pete Drake in Nashville in just two days. That same year, The Beatles announced they were breaking up.

Starr’s passion for creating music continued to drive him forward, and in 1971, he became the first solo Beatle to score seven consecutive Top 10 singles, starting with the release of “It Don’t Come Easy,” with a B-side of “Early 1970.” His second hit single, “Back Off Boogaloo”/”Blindman” followed in 1972, and was written with and inspired by T Rex front man, Marc Bolan. In 1973, Starr released his self-titled smash hit Ringo, which yielded three Top 10 singles, including the #1 hits “Photograph”/”Down and Out,” and “You’re Sixteen (You’re Beautiful And You’re Mine)”/”Devil Woman.”

Starr continued to release more hits, including the Top 10 singles “Only You”/”Call Me” and “The No No Song”/”Snookeroo” and the albums Goodnight Vienna (1974), Blast From Your Past (1975), Rotogravure (1976), Ringo The 4th (1977) and Bad Boy (1978).

In 1981, Starr recorded Stop and Smell the Roses, which was his most critically-acclaimed record since Ringo, followed by Old Wave in 1983, for which he teamed up with producer Joe Walsh. A hits collection, Starr Struck: The Best Of Ringo Starr, Vol. 2, was released in 1989.

Additional Starr releases include Time Takes Time (1992), Vertical Man (1998), I Wanna Be Santa Claus (1999), Ringo Rama (2003) and Choose Love (2005), Liverpool 8 (2008) .

Starr’s latest solo album, Y Not, was released earlier this year and features “Walk With You,” a moving song about the power of friendship recorded with longtime friend and Beatles band mate Paul McCartney.

Since 1989, Starr has also found consistent success as a live act with his revolving All Starr Band Past friends and members have included  the Eagles’ Joe Walsh and Timothy B Schmidt,, E-Streeters Clarence Clemmons and Nils Lofgren, former Band members Rick Danko and Levon Helm, Dr. John, Billy Preston, John Entwistle, Jack Bruce, Peter Frampton, Eric Carmen, Burton Cummings, Ian Hunter, Dave Edmunds, Todd Rundgren, Sheila E., Starr’s son Zak Starkey and many more..
