RINGO STARR HAS SPOKEN OUT ON HOW HE DEALS WITH STAGE FRIGHT

By Posted on 0 3

Ringo Starr has spoken out on how he deals with stage fright and revealed his pre-show ritual.

The Beatles may have broken up almost 50 years ago, but Ringo has been keeping himself busy with his solo career ever since. In fact, it’s now been 30 years since he started touring with his supergroup, Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band. And Ringo may be about to turn 79-years-old, but the former Beatle still gets struck by bouts of stage fright. Speaking with NBC News’ TODAY, Ringo revealed how he deals with it.
Speaking with Al Roker, Ringo said: “I do [still get stage fright].
“Seconds before I go on, I want to go to bed. I wanna go anyway bar there.
“And then I run on. Once I’ve run on, I grab the mic and I’m fine.”
Ringo continued: “I do one ritual while I’m touring.
“That is an hour and half every night before I go on stage.
“I have a baked potato, some vegetables and a vegetable drink. And that keeps me settled.”

By Posted on 0 , 6

On Thursday night, Ringo Starr, stepped out to support the premiere for a new music documentary Echo In The Canyon. He was accompanied by Barbara Bach.

The documentary stars Jakob Dylan, the 49-year-old son of Bob Dylan, who interviews a roster of rock stars.He also performs some of the songs for the era  such as The Beach Boys‘ I Just Wasn’t Made for These Times and The Mamas and The Papas‘ Go Where You Wanna Go.

The film is directed by Andrew Slater, a music industry veteran who once managed Dylan’s band The Wallflowers and former CEO of Capitol Records.’The period we’re talking about is ’65 through ’67,’ Slater explained to The Hollywood Reporter last September when the documentary was screened at the Los Angeles Film festival.

‘It’s how The Byrds were listening to The Beatles, and The Beatles were listening to The Beach Boys, and The Beach Boys were listening to The Beatles and how all that cross-pollination happened to create this music that resonates across the world and across time.’
Among the legends who contribute to the movie are Brian Wilson, Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Michelle Phillips, Jackson Browne, Eric Clapton, Roger McGuinn and Lou Adler. The Byrds frontman Roger McGuinn, 76, also showed up to support the event as did Stephen Stills, 74.

Echo in the Canyon will open in select theaters in LA on May 24 and New York City on May 31.
