Starr receives his own star
The rock legend - who sat behind a Ludwig drum kit on hits such as She Loves You, Ticket to Ride and I Want To Hold Your Hand - has expressed his delight at the accolade.
Commenting on the news, he said: "A star for a Starr - what an honour and a privilege it is to be walked on."
"Peace and love."
The announcement comes only two months after Starr's former bandmate George Harrison received a similar honour.
Fellow Beatle Sir Paul McCartney joined Harrison's widow Olivia and other famous faces including Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne to unveil the star.
April also saw Ringo briefly reunite with Sir Paul for a special live performance in the US, in which they performed a number of Beatles songs including With A Little Help From My Friends.Posted on 22 Jun 2009 14:33 to category : Band / Celebrity News
