How Much is Ringo Starr Worth? Beatle’s Drummer
The famous Beatle’s drummer is one of the most popular musicians to date, along with being one of the last two remaining members of the band next to Paul McCartney. Aside from his Beatle’s success, however, he has branched out onto his own avenue in 1970 just before McCartney did the same (which was when the band finally parted ways). There was a little bit of beef between the two stars over rights to certain songs. They’ve recently somewhat set aside their differences since then and even performed together again in 2014.
One thing many people don’t know is that Ringo was the lead singer of the song “Yellow Submarine” which is one of the Beatle’s biggest hits. Between the success that the famed star (yes, the pun was intended) ensued at being a member of the most popular iconic rock band of all time, he also got a lot of success over the years on numerous solo albums and singles that he’s released. Which leads to the main question in this article. What is Ringo Starr’s net worth?
Ringo Starr Net Worth
There are speculations at just how much net worth Richard Starkey (a.k.a. Ringo Starr’s real name), but every single resource out there says the same thing: $350 Million (U.S. Dollars). That’s an insane amount and makes Ringo start the 10th richest musician on the planet, shortly trailing shortly behind Mick Jagger, lead singer of the Rolling Stones who is only a stone’s throw away at 360 million dollars on the charts of the richest rock stars of the world.
Of course, Paul McCartney is the top, being ranked at number one for being worth $1.2 billion, but you may even think that Ringo’s a member of the stones since Keith Richards, lead guitarist of the Rolling stones follows behind him at $340 million.
How Did He Make It?
Ringo Starr actually has provided financial tips over the years on what he did in order to succeed, which is a lot more than some stars actually have done in order to contribute to the general public. Most stars simply know they’re rock stars, while others still know how to live frivolously and conservatively at the same time. Here are some tips that Ringo has given others that helped him get up to $350 mills.
- Pay Your Bills
If you don’t have bills to pay, you can’t get anywhere. If life was easy, then songwriters wouldn’t have songs to write about for starters. If you want to talk the talk, you still have to walk the walk, even if you’re a celebrity.
- Practice Peace
In order to turn the other cheek, you need to learn how to get along. If everyone in the world got along, the world would be a better place. With a sense of peace, you can aim to be the best person that you can be.
- Life Goes On
He once said that in order to live in the future, you have to kiss the past goodbye. At the same time, if you live in the past, you may as well kiss your future goodbye. These are very important and wise words, and they have been used by many in different wordings, both in and out of song form.
Ringo Starr Style & Early Life
Ringo’s drumming style is actually very basic, bit he’s a master of drumming. He began playing drums in England more than 65 years ago when he was just a child and had to go to a hospital after he ended up getting sick from tuberculosis. Miraculously, he ended up recovering, but all they had was the drums and a harmonica.
During his early years in school, Ringo wasn’t very good at math or reading. This led to a lot of bullying at school as well as people just treating him like an outcast. Things like this are what led to him picking up drums, because then he could feel like himself and have little of a care in the world. That means that Ringo is living proof that you can indeed thrive from all the negativity in the world and turn it into something positive and awesome!
Enter the Beatles
In 1960 Ringo’s band was actually the lead act that the Beatles were an opener for. Ringo was a very fair fellow though, and ended up doing some stand-ins to help the Beatles when they were in Hamburg England in 1960. He ended up playing a show with the original members of the Beatles on October 15th that year, and they ended up being recorded, and then he met Tony Sheridan, joining his band. That was short lived though, and less than 2 years later, John Lennon asked him if he wanted to join the Beatles. When Ringo accepted, the Beatles fired their original drummer, Brian Epstein, and thus the Fab Five were a team. That didn’t come without complications of course. Fans were upset at the original drummer being fired, and even more so, the manager of the band didn’t want to take too many risks so he had Ringo play some percussion instruments on songs like “Love Me Do” and “P.S. I Love You”. It literally only took a couple months for fans to grow fond of Ringo however, and he was already starting to get requests to sing songs like the other members of the band did.
Conclusion – Ringo Starr Net Worth & Bio
As mentioned in a nutshell all of Ringo’s success was from his life practices, as well as the enumerating success of the Beatles primarily. Not only that, but he never gave up. That’s something that many rock stars eventually do is give up, but the top and richest rock stars in the world are still playing live shows to this day, including Ringo Starr. He occasionally plays with Paul McCartney after their problems resolved, and for years he didn’t even talk to him. They literally were two polar opposites who eventually came back together for a couple reunion shows. In 2017, Ringo released another solo album named “Give More Love”, which is what his lifestyle has always been about, and in 2018, he was actually appointed as a Knight Bachelor
