Happy birthday, Rich. Richie? Just Richard? Either way, Richard Starkey celebrates 70 wonderful years today. Still not sure? How’s “happy birthday, Ringo Starr” work? Ahhhh!
He’s not just “the drummer.” He was one hell of singer and songwriter actually. Ringo has been involved in far too much to be left out of the INLE birthday wishes. We usually reserve multiple birthday musical offerings for those already passed, but when you’re a Beatle AND the Thomas the Tank Engine narrator, you get all the f’n cake you want. Sir Topham Hat, indeed.
Here’s a couple from Ringo and some friends. Good friends. Good result. Good day, sir. Happy birthday, Mr. Starkey.
