Starr is the final solo Beatle to be inducted
Paul McCartney inducted Ringo Starr into the Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame on Saturday [April 18, 2015].
In his speech, quoted by Rolling Stone, McCartney said, “We were four guys from Liverpool that set out on this journey. Eventually we got on The Ed Sullivan Show and got really famous.
“Ringo is just something so special. When he’s playing behind you, you don’t have to look and wonder if he’s going to speed up or slow down. It’s just there. It’s a great honor for me to induce him — oh, induct him — into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”
Later, McCartney joined Starr on stage to perform “A Little Help From My Friends“.
Starr is the final member of The Beatles to be inducted.
McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison were inducted as solo artists in 1999, 1994 and 2004 respectively.
The Beatles themselves were inducted in 1988.
