RINGO STARR AT RYMAN AUDITORIUM NASHVILLE: ‘I’M REALLY BLESSED’

By Posted on 1 7

Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band at Ryman Auditorium Nashville.

“When I was living in Liverpool, England,” began Starr, who performed Wednesday night at the hallowed Nashville venue, “and listening to Ernest Tubb and Willie Nelson — when he wore a suit … the idea I’m on this stage is mind blowing.”It’s just far out,” he continued. “I’m really blessed. Thank you.”

Ringo,two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee returned this week to the Mother Church of Country Music as part of his All-Starr Band’s 30th anniversary tour.
The 2019 All-Starr band features a collection of classic pop rock hitmakers: Steve Lukather (Toto), Colin Hay (Men At Work), Gregg Rolie (Santana) and Hamish Stuart (Average White Band).A two-plus hour show of nostalgic radio bangers.
The sold out night kicked off Starr’s third stop at the Ryman this decade, following appearances in 2012 and 2016 — the former resulting in his 2013 live release “Ringo at the Ryman.”

Opening the show with “Matchbox,” he sauntered to each side of the stage, flashing a smile and the occasional peace sign. He’d tease playfully between songs, taking advantage of the zealous audience — especially when Lukather kicked into the “Day Tripper” opening riff, only to have Ringo cut him off. “Oh,” Starr joked, flashing a bit of his time-tested charm. “We’re not doing that one.”
A Beatles song that actually made the cut? Country-tinged “Don’t Pass Me By,” which Ringo introduced by sharing “when I joined the Beatles, I’d written a lot of songs. None of them were recorded until we got to this one.”
Ringo traveled as far back as his pre-Beatles tenure with “Boys,” a 1960 rock ‘n’ roll number he covered before (and during) his time with the Fab Four.”It’s that time where I’m gonna do a number with a band I used to be in,” Ringo said, earning a rousing cheer. “Yeah, Rory Storm and the Hurricanes”.Before his first take on Santana canon, “Evil Ways,” Rolie reminded onlookers that he played the cut 50 years ago this month, at Woodstock. “(This was) the first hit from Santana,” Rolie said. “I was just a child … 50 years ago. My God.”
Band members toss the spotlight to one another at any moment,from Lukather ripping an extended solo during “Black Magic Woman”to Hay taking lead on the “Africa”chorus.Ringo said:”Ready to listen to some good music?I can promise everyone in the audience tonight that they will know at least one song.That’s a promise.”

RINGO STARR CONFIRMS BOX SET REISSUE OF BEATLES “ABBEY ROAD”

By Posted on 0 , 6

Ringo Starr says 1969’s Abbey Road will be next in the Beatles‘ expanded box-set reissue series. Noting the album’s looming 50th anniversary, Starr says he’s particularly thrilled with sound improvements over the years.

“I’ve loved all the re-releases because of the remastering,” Starr tells Billboard. “You can hear the drums, which got dialed down in the old days.”

The Beatles have already remastered and expanded 1967’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and 1968’s self-titled “White Album,” adding acoustic versions and alternate takes to give fans a fuller picture of how these now-familiar songs evolved. Starr, who just kicked off his latest All-Starr Band dates, admits that he prefers to focus on the originally released material.

“I get a bit fed up, personally, with all those, like, Take 9 or Take 3, the odd takes that we didn’t put out,” he said, “but that’s part of the box set and you have to do stuff like that. But I’ve always just listened to the record itself, what we put out in the ’60s or 1970, and it’s brighter.”

Starr’s latest All-Starr Band, which also includes Steve Lukather, Gregg Rolie, Colin Hay and Hamish Stuart, played Thursday night at Caesars Windsor in Ontario, Canada. Their dates together continue through a Sept. 1 appearance at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

Last night’s set was highlighted by a performance of the Rubber Soul deep cut “What Goes On,” which Starr noted was the only Beatles song credited to John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Starkey. “The names,” he quipped, “should have been the other way around.”

Abbey Road was released in September 1969 in the U.K., and that October in America.
