Ringo in Rolling
The current edition (RS #875) of Rolling Stone magazine has an interesting
Q&A with Ringo prior to the start of the tour in
which he talks about life, touring, and taking care of himself. David
Wild writes, "Sitting in the yard of his Los Angeles home surrounded
by his dogs Ying and Yang, Ringo Starr looks like a happy man. He's
just back from the acupuncturist and is getting ready to head out on
the road with his All-Starr Band, an ever-changing outfit that has become
a semiregular fixture on the summer-tour scene since 1989. . . ."
The Rolling Stone site also has a photo collection of Ringo, past album
reviews, and news clips.
