RINGO STARR MOVES 2020 ALL STARR BAND TOUR TO 2021

By Posted on 0 1

Ringo Starr has announced that he is rescheduling his 2020 North American tour with his All Starr Band to 2021, citing concern and caution for the well being of fans, crew and staff due to the Covid-19 crisis. The lineup remains intact: Steve Lukather, Colin Hay, Gregg Rolie, Warren Ham, Gregg Bissonette, and Hamish Stuart. The spring 2021 tour will include a mini residency at New York’s Beacon Theatre.

“This is very difficult for me,” said Starr, in the March 27 announcement. “In 30 years I think I’ve only missed 2 or 3 gigs nevermind a whole tour. But this is how things are for all of us now, I have to stay in just like you have to stay in, and we all know it’s the peace and loving thing we do for each other.”

Two dates will include Americana band, the Avett Brothers. (No longer on the schedule are performances in Bangor, Me., and Mexico.) Tickets already purchased for the 2020 dates will be honored at the 2021 performances. Tickets are available for purchase here.

The original 2020 tour was announcement on Nov. 4, 2019, on the heels of the release of Ringo’s 20th studio album, What’s My Name. The title track is a rousing anthem written by a returning All Starr Band member, Colin Hay, that turns a familiar chant from Ringo’s live shows into a rousing rocker.

The album is the latest in a series of recordings that Starr has produced in his home studio and a distinguished cast of musical friends playing along with Ringo, including Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Winter, Dave Stewart, Benmont Tench, Lukather, Nathan East, Hay, Richard Page, Warren Ham, and more.

Ringo, who turns 80 on July 7, recently released Another Day in the Life, the third in his series of books with Genesis Publications, that follows the sell-out success of Postcards From the Boys (2003) and Photograph (2013), and features previously unpublished collection of his photographs, captioned with his own thoughts and anecdotes.

GEORGE HARRISON’S FOUNDATION DONATES HALF A MILLION TO COVID-19 RELIEF

By Posted on 0 , 9

George Harrison’s Material World Foundation has donated $500,000 to COVID-19 relief. The foundation — started by the late Beatle in 1973 with the release of the LP Living in the Material World — donated the funds to MusiCare’s COVID-19 Foundation, Save the Children, and Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders).

In addition, the foundation launched “The Inner Light Challenge,” in which users across the globe share a line, verse, or chorus from the Beatles’ 1968 B side — featured in a new lyric-video below. One dollar will be donated to pandemic relief for every person who posts the clip with the hashtag #innerlight2020, with a maximum of $100,000.

Harrison’s son, Dhani, covers “The Inner Light” in the clip above. “Without going out of my door/I can know all things on earth,” he sings, ringing a Tibetan singing bowl while sitting on a couch. “Without looking out of my window/I could know the ways of heaven.”

“These lyrics sung by George are a positive reminder to all of us who are isolating, in quarantine, or respecting the request to shelter in place,” Harrison’s widow, Olivia, said in a statement. “Let’s get and stay connected at this difficult time. There are things we can do to help, and we invite you to share your Inner Light.”

Dhani recently revived his father’s record label, Dark Horse Records, and has plans for previously unreleased material to see the light of day. “It’s the family business, as they say,” “It’s funny — if you’re a plumber and want to be in the family plumbing business, no one would think anything about that. That would be normal. But in our family, the family business is music, so I’m just doing what mum and dad did. No one is making us do it. We have to do it.”

Ringo and Paul on initiative #innerlight2020…
“I am sending Peace and Love to everyone and hope you are staying healthy and safe. I want to thank and support Dhani and Olivia for this great campaign to help to fight Covid 19. Peace and love,” Ringo

“When we find ourselves in times of trouble… Happy to support Dhani and Olivia with this very worthwhile cause. Great song, wonderful initiative #innerlight2020” – Paul


PAUL MCCARTNEY AND RINGO STARR SAID THE NEW BEATLES DOC WILL BE SO DIFFERENT FROM “LET IT BE”

By Posted on 0 , 3

From the January 2019 announcement that Peter Jackson was working on a new Beatles documentary, we started hearing the narrative that it would be an answer to Let It Be (1970), the contentious doc produced by Michael Lindsay-Hogg from early ’69 Fab Four sessions.

Digging into 55 hours of unused footage — and more than twice that amount of audio material — Jackson said he’d found a different side to what we’ve considered the most bitter of Beatles days. According to the director, the footage would change everyone’s conception of those sessions.

“I was relieved to discover the reality was different to the myth,” Jackson said. “Sure, there’s moments of drama — but none of the discord the project has long been associated with.” For those who recalled the George Harrison-Paul McCartney flap in Let It Be, this claim sounded interesting.

Jackson wasn’t the only one who’s made these claims. Along with Paul, Ringo Starr has gone on the record saying the Fab Four was doing quite well when it appeared otherwise.

Before there was the Let It Be album and film, The Beatles aimed to return their roots as a four-piece band in what they called the Get Back sessions in January ’69. Lindsay-Hogg planned to film their rehearsals and eventual return to the stage for a live performance.

But the Fab Four got in their own way before that happened. (They did, nonetheless, perform for the last time on the roof of the Apple building.) Lindsay-Hogg caught some ugly moments between Paul and George on film for all to see. And George quit the band briefly during this period.
Yet the surviving members of the group seem to remember things differently these days.

In a release announcing the premier date of Jackson’s doc (titled The Beatles: Get Back). Ringo spoke of how happy he was to see the other side. “I’m really looking forward to this film,” he said. “There was hours and hours of us just laughing and playing music, not at all like the version that came out. There was a lot of joy and I think Peter will show that. I think this version will be a lot more peace and loving, like we really were.”
Paul McCartney said the doc showed ‘the truth’ about Beatles sessions. “I am really happy that Peter has delved into our archives to make a film that shows the truth about The Beatles recording together,” Paul said. “The friendship and love between us comes over. It reminds me of what a crazily beautiful time we had.”
