Ringo Starr Keeps All-Starr Band Intact For Sixth Year; Touring U.S. Starting in October

by VVN Music

Ringo Starr has finally found an All-Starr Band that he likes and has members with flexible enough schedules to fit Ringo in for a few week per year.

Starr formed his first All-Starr Band in 1989, which included Joe Walsh, Dr. John, Billy Preston, Rick Danko and Levon Helm of the Band, Nils Lofgren, Clarence Clemons and Jim Keltner. Since, he has had eleven more lineups but none longer than the now six-year running Twelfth All-Starr Band.

Returning once again are Toto's Steve Lukathar, Todd Rundgren, Gregg Rollie (Santana, Journey), Richard Page (Mr. Mister), Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth) and Warren Ham (Bloodrock, Kansas).

Ringo said of the band "The dream is still unfolding. I love to play, and I love to play with this band. I can't say that enough, and we're on the road again."
