He’s a legend in the music industry and gained worldwide fame as the drummer for the Beatles.
And Ringo Starr, 79, cut a stylish figure as he attended the Global Citizen Prize gala at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Friday.
The musician was joined by his chic wife Barbara Bach, 72, and the pair appeared to be in good spirits as they threw up some peace signs for the cameras.
Ringo opted for an all-black ensemble at the star-studded event, donning a button up jacket with a high leather neck.
He paired this with some black jeans and laced boots before adding a pair of circular black framed glasses.
Barbara, who has been married to the rocker since 1981, also kept things casual for the evening wearing a long black cardigan with a striped T-shirt.
Barbara, added a splash of colour to her outfit with a trendy scarf covered in colourful squares.
Ringo’s appearance comes after a parking ticket issued to him in April 1969 outside Apple records in Savile Row, London, was expected to fetch £1,500 at auction.
Alan Herring, who was the driver for Starr and George Harrison, kept the ticket along with a pair of John Lennon’s round sunglasses, reports the Daily Mail.
Mr Herring said he usually managed to have a good relationship with traffic wardens – but not on this occasion.
The glasses, which have one lens and an arm detached, are expected to sell for £8,000 in The Beatles online sale at Sotheby’s from December 6 to 13.
John told Mr Herring to keep them after he left them on the back seat of Ringo’s Mercedes in 1968.
Other items in the Sotheby’s sale include a cigarette lighter kept in the car, shirts worn by the band and one of Harrison’s guitars, which is expected to fetch £60,000.
Bandmember Sir Paul McCartney spoke candidly about the Beatles heyday during an interview for Billboard’s 125th Anniversary Issue recently.
Paul said making music with John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo was an interesting experience as they would always try new things.
Sir Paul explained: ‘We’d do one song, and it’d be a hit, and instead of doing another with the same formula, we’d say, “OK, we’ve done that.” You listen to The Beatles’ output and no two songs are alike.”
And he went on to say of reworking old tracks: ‘I go through these songs, and when we remaster, I go to Abbey Road, and it’s like popping into the office. And I get to hear these songs I haven’t heard forever.’
