Product Description

Synopsis

Considered by many as lucky to have been in The Beatles, Ringo Starr epitomises the rock n roll lifestyle. World-famous pop star, acclaimed film actor, the voice of an internationally successful children's TV series and husband to a glamorous movie star - at face value he seems to have led a charmed life. Yet behind the sunglasses and the ready quips loom the horrors of his health problems, alcoholism and deprived family background. Alan Clayson's biography remains the definitive account of the man who anchored the Merseybeat.

I was hoping to read an in-depth and interesting review about the life of Ringo Starr. Instead this book comes across as being a spiteful and superscilious overview of Ringo, with the author clearly believing that Ringo was lucky to have been in the Fab Four. What a load of rubbish! Ringo is a great drummer - and his drumming comlemented the Beatles' music perfectly. Alan Clayson is quite obviously jealous of the well deserved success that Ringo has enjoyed throughout his career - both with the Beatles and afterwards.

Another great book on the former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr. Although it contains much the same information as his other books on Ringo, it occasionally uncovers things that I never new about Ringo. A great addition to his other books.
