  • On guitar... Ringo Starr!

    Not sure if this was already posted, but I found an interesting site detailing the various guitars and basses owned by each of the Beatles.

    It promises a section for Ringo "coming soon" but in the meantime, they had this cool shot of Mr. Starkey.

      He looks more comfortable on guitar than drums. What a weird, talented lot, the Beatles.

        Looks like it's "Starr Time!" with Rory Storme and the Hurricanes.

          To quote Early 1970- "I play guitar A,D,E. I play the piano if it's in C" Looks like Ringo is even more talented than we give credit for.

              It's always interesting to think that these well known/celebrity band members all once got their start in a band.

                John gave Ringo his 3rd Rickenbacker. Ringo still has it.

                One chord is fine. Two chords is pushing it.

                  Ringo picks up a guitar now and then, sometimes during a show. I remember seeing him play a Gibson L6-S once - just strumming it mainly. Not sure if it was his or someone's from the band.

                    I bet that photo had to be from at least the very early 60's. That scruffy beard look is pretty hip now, but back then it was totally subversive.

                      He had to shave it off when he joined The Beatles -- but they told him, 'You can keep the sidies, though ...'
