The official Twitter account of Ringo Starr posted this light-hearted photograph of the acclaimed drummer sitting on the lap of late A-list singer Harry Nillson. The photo originally came from Nilsson’s Instagram with the caption: “This holiday season, hold your friends close and keep your shades on. Merry Christmas to all and to all…” It should also be noted that both are dressed in Santa garb for this photograph. You can view it below. Ringo Starr unloads on Paul McCartney ‘hatred’.
In other news regarding Ringo Starr, fans recently took to social media to discuss one of Starr’s most classic albums – ‘Ringo’, originally released from 1973. One fan stated: “Yeah, Ringo was the “limited” Beatle, his singing was, at best, serviceable, and his drumming would not rank as journey-level Sheila E! But, this 1973 release stills ranks as one of the 1970’s best pop albums. Richard Perry, the then red-hot producer, has surrounded Ringo (nee Richard Starkey) with his former bandmates Lennon, McCartney, and Harrison, Tom Scott’s masterful arrangements, Billy Preston’s keyboarding, and even Martha Reeves and Linda McCartney on background vocals.” Ringo Starr recently revealed why Paul McCartney ‘ended’ The Beatles.
