Two For Tuesday: Ringo Starr

Ringo Starr, The Beatles’ legendary drummer who sang a couple of songs with The Fab Four, had five top ten hits that spent a total of 26 weeks during my high school days. Two of them reached #1, both within a few months of each other.

His first #1 was “Photograph,” which he co-wrote with fellow Former Fab George Harrison. It spent seven weeks in the top ten in November 1973.

His second, a cover of Johnny Burnette’s “You’re Sixteen,” entered the top ten in January 1974 and spent six weeks there.

Ringo is still at it, and as of last June was working on an album with his All-Starr Band. He’s considered one of the most distinctive rock drummers of all time.
