Love is in the air, and so are wedding bells! The son of The Beatles drumming icon Ringo Starr, Zak Starkey married his long-time love interest of eighteen years, Australian artist and singer Sharna Liguz during a humble ceremony in front of their loved ones in West Hollywood, California. Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder would serve as the best man for the occasion. Eddie Vedder ‘struggled’ before key 2022 tour dates.
Starkey and Liguz have one child together, a daughter named Luna Lee Lightnin.” In a statement that was shared to People, the happy couple would state: “After 18 years together, Luna’s umbilical cord kinda tied the knot but we wanted to make it official and share with our friends and family in the U.S; before doing the same in Jamaica and the U.K.”

In other Pearl Jam news, earlier this year, fellow rock and roll living legend ‘The Boss’ Bruce Springsteen interviewed with Vedder in promotion for the Pearl Jam singer’s latest solo album ‘Earthling, which was released on February 11th of this year. Here, Springsteen makes note of hearing punk and heavy metal influence on some of Vedder’s continued works and asks where that portion of music was influenced from?

“The stuff that got put in my blender started with the Jackson 5 as a kid, then the Beatles … and the Who took over big time,” says Vedder, who then points to the Boss. “And, my friend.”
The star-studded Vedder solo album would contain a multitude of special guest performances from fellow A-list musicians such as Elton John, Stevie Wonder and the aforementioned Ringo Starr. The album would debut at number one on Billboard’s Top Album Sales’s charts.
