"Arise, Sir Ringo" - Wogblog - Ringo gets his knighthood 50 years after getting his M.B.E.

WogBlog


Posted: 27 Dec 2017 05:36 AM PST

Still from the film Lisztomania.

Several UK newspapers are reporting that a certain Richard Starkey MBE, is one of the the names on Queen Elizabeth II's New Year's Honours list over who are going to be knighted in 2018. This is something Ringo can't have dreamt about when he recorded the song Elizabeth Reigns for the album Ringo Rama i 2003. After the song finishes, we can hear him say: "Well...there goes me knighthood"!

The news was first published by scandal paper The Sun, but has since been confirmed by The Daily Mail, The Mirror, as well as other, reliable sources.
We have to admit that there has been a bit too many of these knighthoods of late, after Paul McCartney was knighted in 1997 at the age of 55. After that, Elton John, Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart and Ray Davies have all been honoured this way.
Neither John nor George received this honour, but George's friend and teacher Ravi Shankar was knighted in 2001.

Ringo is said to be "chuffed to bits" about the news, but the official announcement will be made on January 1. In the summer of 2018, Ringo and his All Starr Band is undertaking a European Tour, but no British dates have been announced.

A source added: “He’ll feel ten feet tall when he goes back.
"Sadly, two of the Beatles, John Lennon and George Harrison, are no longer here to be honoured in a similar way.
“But giving Ringo a knighthood will go some way towards recognising the enormous contribution The Beatles made to popular music.
"He is a beacon of Beatlemania.”

Sir Paul, 75, had told of his frustration for his pal in an interview.
When it was suggested he could ask the Queen to knight Ringo, Macca replied: “The last time I went by she was out.
"Otherwise, I would have popped in and said ‘Look, love, Sir Richard Starkey’. Because I do think it’s about time.”
Ringo, who is said to be worth £300million, was born and raised in a two-up, two-down terraced house in Madryn Street, Liverpool, to a docker dad and bakery worker mum.

He missed so much schooling that by 15, he could barely read or write. But he had an aptitude for woodwork, mechanics and music.
He took early jobs as a delivery boy, a trainee joiner and a barman on the Mersey ferries.
His dream came true when his stepfather bought him a drum kit for Christmas 1957, and he promised to be “the best drummer ever”.

'Pot at palace'

JOHN Lennon claimed the band smoked dope in a palace loo before getting MBEs in 1965.
Ringo has always insisted he cannot remember.
He said later: “It was a groove meeting the Queen, and it was far out.”
Lennon gave back his medal in 1969 in protest at the Vietnam War.
Ringo said: “I was never sending mine back. It meant a lot.”
By the time the Beatles were formed, Ringo was already on the tour circuit with the successful band Rory Storm and the Hurricanes.
The Fab Four’s manager Brian Epstein poached him to replace Pete Best as drummer in 1962 and it completed the magic formula that catapulted the group to international fame.
Pop historians believe Ringo’s comedy and acting talents were as important as his musicianship, providing the key ingredient of humour and stability that kept the group together.
While most of the songwriting was the genius of Lennon and McCartney, Ringo had more than his fair share of input.

He is credited with inventing the phrase A Hard Day’s Night which became a hit single, album and film.
It followed a long day in the studio when Ringo collapsed in a chair and panted: “I’m bloody knackered, man.
"It’s been a hard day...” — then noticing how late it was, he added: “...night.”
Lennon then penned the song.

Ringo was given at least one song to sing on every album, his most popular numbers being With a Little Help from My Friends and Yellow Submarine.
After the band broke up in 1970, he released several successful singles including It Don’t Come Easy, You’re Sixteen, Back off Boogaloo and Photograph.
He also made a new career in TV and film and was loved by a generation of kids for narrating cartoon Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends.

His wit and wisdom

RINGO has entertained us for years with his comments — some of them daft, some genius.
Here are six of his most memorable quotes . . .
  • I like Beethoven, especially the poems.
  • Drumming is my middle name.
  • That’s all drugs and alcohol do, they cut off your emotions in the end.
  • The Beatles was a short, incredible period of my life. I had 22 years leading up to it, and it was all over eight years later.
  • I never studied anything really. I didn’t study the drums. I joined bands and made all the mistakes on stage.
  • People only look at me as a Beatle, but my friends look at me as a whole person. That’s how life works, but it’s not bugging me any more.
Ringo wed long-time sweetheart Maureen Cox in 1965, with whom he had three children Zak, Jason and Lee.
Zak followed in his dad’s footsteps to become a drummer, playing with The Who and Oasis.
The couple split in 1975 and he married actress Barbara Bach, who played a Bond girl in 1977’s The Spy Who Loved Me.

Ringo sold his 200-acre estate in Cranleigh, Surrey, for a reputed £20million in 2014.
He now divides his time between Switzerland and California.
Ringo has said Britain should get on with Brexit, calling it a “Great move”.
He said recently: “The people voted and they have to get on with it.
“Suddenly it’s like ‘Oh, well, we don’t like that vote.’ You had the vote, this won, let’s get on with it.”

Arise Sir Ringo Starr – Beatles legend to be knighted, finally More than 50 years after receiving the MBE, Ringo Starr is to be made a knight in the New Year Honours (Photo: Getty) Padraic Flanagan 3 daysMonday December 25th 2017 Ringo Starr, the Beatles drummer, is set to be knighted in the New Year’s Honours, it has emerged. The 77-year-old musician will join his bandmate Sir Paul McCartney as a knight, 52 years after receiving an MBE. Sir Paul was knighted in 1997 but, according to newspaper reports, Starr had given up hope of a further honour until a letter arrived from the Palace several weeks ago. 

The knighthood will be awarded for services to music and charity and announced next week along with a full list of official recipients. Chuffed A close family friend told the Sun on Sunday: “It came as a bolt from the blue. Ringo was totally knocked sideways but is chuffed to bits.” “He’ll feel ten feet tall when he goes back. Sadly, two of the Beatles, John Lennon and George Harrison, are no longer here to be honoured in a similar way. “But giving Ringo a knighthood will go some way towards recognising the enormous contribution The Beatles made to popular music. He is a beacon of Beatlemania.” 

In 1965, all four members of the Beatles were awarded an MBE at Buckingham Palace. John Lennon famously returned his honour to the Queen in protest at the Vietnam War. Deserved Sir Paul has previously suggested his friend, real name Richard Starkey, had been robbed of a deserved knighthood, telling NME in 2011 it was “about time”. Asked whether he could put in a word with the Queen, he joked: “The last time I went by she was out. Otherwise I would have popped in and said ‘Look, love, Sir Richard Starkey’. Because I do think it’s about time.” 

Ringo was totally knocked sideways but is chuffed to bits Starr’s charity work includes donations to causes supporting AIDS awareness, abused children, human rights, poverty around the world and the creative arts. He made headlines this year by suggesting he voted Leave in the Brexit referendum, saying afterwards: “The people voted and they have to get on with it.”
