As we head towards the midpoint of only the second month of 2014, it’s already been a busy year for Kenny Aronoff. The legendary drummer is probably best known for his career-defining work behind the kit for John Mellencamp in the ‘80s and ‘90s, which was followed by a similarly lengthy stint as the drummer for another famous John -- former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty-- a highly successful relationship that remains intact to this day.
Despite a two-hour parade of musical tributes featuring the biggest names from every genre of modern popular music, Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney effortlessly stole the show at 'The Beatles: The Night That Changed America.'
For all of the many superstars who made appearances and thrilled fans with performances at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, the night will probably best be remembered as the night the Beatles dominated the airwaves again . . . almost 50 years to the day when they first landed in the U.S.
The Recording Academy is going all out to honor the Beatles at this year's Grammy Awards, honoring the band with a Lifetime Achievement Award and helping round up an all-star cast of performers to commemorate their groundbreaking 1964 appearance on 'The Ed Sullivan Show,' and it's all got Ringo Starr in a rather nostalgic mood.
It's official. After much speculation, the two surviving members of the Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, will play on an upcoming TV special commemorating the 50th anniversary of their arrival in America.
Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr may mark the 50th anniversary of Beatlemania hitting U.S. shores next month by performing together. Showbiz 411 reports that the two surviving Beatles could show up on David Letterman's late-night show during his network's week-long celebration of the Fab Four.
He’s been one of rock’s premier sidemen for nearly 40 years. Now Benmont Tench, the keyboardist for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, is stepping into the spotlight with his debut single, and he's brought along some old friends.
Although they wouldn't officially disband until April 1970, the first signs that the four-headed beast known as the Beatles was starting to come apart at the seams took place on Aug. 22, 1968. A little more than six years to the day that he performed his first show with the group, drummer Ringo Starr walked out during the recording sessions for 'The Beatles.'
In April 1978, Ringo Starr was behind an hour-long TV special simply called 'Ringo.' Built around a 'Prince and the Pauper'-style premise, the show looked a lot like many other variety programs from the era. Right down to its eternal cheesiness.
