2014 was a great year for Ringo Starr—he reunited with his former Beatles bandmate Paul McCartney at the 56th Annual GRAMMYs and again a few days later at the GRAMMYs Beatles tribute The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute. He also had an exhibit in his honor at the GRAMMY museum, and and usual, he toured with his latest All-Starr Band.
And 2015 looks to be just as busy for the legendary drummer: he’s going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his solo work, he’s just announced his latest album, Postcards From Paradise and he’s going to be hitting the road again.
Postcards from Paradise sees him working with the above-mentioned All-Starr Band who he’s been touring with. That includes Toto guitarist Steve Lukather, guitarist Todd Rundgren, founding Santana keyboardist/singer Gregg Rolie, Mr. Mister bassist Richard Page, drummer Gregg Bissonette and former All-Starr and multi-instrumentalist Warren Ham.
Starr produced the album himself, featuring a number of special guests including Eagles guitarist/Starr-brother-in-law Joe Walsh, Benmont Tench from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, former Eurythmics member Dave Stewart, Richard Marx and Peter Frampton, among others.
