The Beatles Through The Years has been one of the leading internet entertainment sites related to the Beatles since its incarnation in 2011, for one simple reason: we focus on the fans. While we do provide the history of The Band, talk about the latest Beatles-related news in our blogs and on the Tea and a Butty Podcast, discuss their albums and movies, and swoon over pictures of the lads, we also highlight the individuals that make up this particular fandom, because Beatles fans are what keeps the legend of the Beatles alive.

Live: Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band at the Winstar World Casino, Oklahoma, 5/7/2014



"I'm Ringo and I play the Drums..."


Last night I fulfilled a lifelong dream. A dream that I had since I was about 8 years old. To see Ringo Starr play his drums live.

Ringo was performing at the Winstar World Casino and Resort just over the Texas border in Oklahoma with his All Star Band, which was comprised of Todd Rundgren on Rhythm Guitar, Steve Lukather (Toto) on Lead guitar, Gregg Rolie (Santana & Journey) on Hammond Organ, Richard Page (Mr. Mister) on Bass, Mark Rivera on Sax and Greg Bissonette on the drums.

Ringo usually has a second drummer to play while he gets up front to sing and the 2 hour show is not only made up of Ringo's material from his solo career and that huge band he was in back in Liverpool (Rory Storm & The Hurricanes) :-P

Steve Lukather, Todd Rundgren, Richard Page and Greg Rolie all performed hits from their respective bands ('Rosanna', 'Bang On The Drum', 'Broken Wings' and 'Africa' were among the non-Ringo songs played).

If you haven't seen Ringo and his All Starr Band yet, you are missing out on a treat. The Winstar Global Event Center which is attached to their Casino and Hotel, was the perfect venue, quite intimate yet big enough for Ringo and the band to rock out.
