Ringo Starr was born and lived his childhood in Liverpool, Great Britain. He had a lot of health problems in childhood, and this was a reason to leave school when he was 13 and continue home schooling. However, he was great pupil in drama, art and also mechanics. He became Beatles in 1962 as a drummer, instead of Pete Best. He was not only great drummer, but also amazing singer, singing along with John in majority of Beatles songs, including hits as “Yellow Submarine”, “Octopus’s Garden”, etc. He’s drumming was different because he was left-handed but nevertheless played on right-handed instruments. Ringo’s drumming style was major influence for modern drum players.
