Richard Starkey, MBE (born 7 July 1940), better known by his stage name Ringo Starr is an English musician, singer-songwriter and actor best known as the drummer for the rock group The Beatles. Between the ages of six and fifteen, Starr experienced serious health problems, necessitating extended hospital visits, so that his schooling suffered due to the amount of time he had to be absent. The early illnesses left Starr with allergies, and when The Beatles travelled to India, Starr had to take his own food with him.

When The Beatles formed in 1960, Starr belonged to another Liverpool band, Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. He became The Beatles' drummer in 1962, taking over from Pete Best. In addition to his contribution as drummer, Starr featured as lead singer on a number of successful Beatles songs, and also as songwriter with the songs "Don't Pass Me By", "Octopus's Garden", and in collaboration with the other members, the song "What Goes On".

After The Beatles' break-up in 1970, Starr achieved commercial success with a number of solo singles and albums, and continued occasional work with each of his fellow ex-Beatles as they too developed their post-Beatles musical careers. Starr has also appeared in a number of films; he played the central character in several Beatles films, and has appeared in numerous other films both before and after his time with The Beatles. He has also featured in a number of TV documentaries, hosted TV shows, and acted as the narrator for the children's TV series Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends. He now tours with Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band.
