Ringo Starr gets by with a little help from his friends
Infobeat (E-zine. Unavailable online)
18 November, 1999
It was 26 years ago today that Ringo Starr's third album, "Ringo," entered the album charts.
The album went on to become his most successful solo album to date, rising to No. 2 on
the album chart and spawning two No. 1 singles: "Photograph" (co-written with George
Harrison) and a cover of Johnny Burnette's "You're Sixteen" (featuring Paul McCartney).
One track on the album, "I'm The Greatest," brought about a near Beatles reunion; John
Lennon wrote the song and played rhythm guitar, Ringo sang lead vocals, and George
Harrison played guitar. Ringo says he's always gotten by with a little help from his friends -
even back in the days of the Beatles, John and Paul were writing songs for him.
In the earlier days of the band, Ringo picked out songs that he wanted to cover, but later on,
when John and Paul wrote songs like "With A Little Help From My Friends" and "Yellow
Submarine," they wrote them with Ringo's vocals in mind, "They were all written for me.
The earlier records - I picked 'Act Naturally' and the Carl Perkins songs like 'Matchbox' - I
picked those and said, 'I wanna do this,' and then they started writing for me specially."
