Ringo's all starr band

ringo starr & Gregg bissonette's set-ups

As the drummer in The Beatles, Ringo Starr has enjoyed a musical journey that defies comparison to any other player in history.  Being a musically creative drummer, Starr’s contribution to their music has received high praise. Ringo has described himself as “your basic offbeat drummer with funny fills”.  But his popularity brought forth a new paradigm where the drummer was seen as an equal participant in compositional aspect. Ringo composed unique, stylistic drum parts for the Beatles’ songs.

Ringo Starr has announced that he and his All Starr Band will tour New Zealand this February. The band line-up features Steve Lukather (Toto), Richard Page (Mr. Mister), Todd Rundgren, Mark Rivera, Greg Rolie (Santana & Journey) and Gregg Bissonette.

“The tour this summer in the US was just GREAT - I love playing with this band and I can’t wait to get back out and play with them again,” Ringo said. “I am looking forward to revisiting New Zealand and bringing the All Starrs. Peace & Love!”
