Based on solo work alone is Johns solo catalogue all that remarkable based on music alone? Aside from Plastic Ono Band and Imagine none of the others are great bodies of work or that well known. Same can be said for George's with the standout being All Things Must Pass. The same can be applied to Ringo, Ringo (the LP) was massive back in '73 (its also a damn fine album) Goodnight Vienna was also incredibly successfully. If anything Ringo did better success-wise than John ever did before he died. George had the early 70's up to 1974 when Dark Horse and the US tour was disastrous and things began to fall apart.

If anything, based on all of that Wings should be in giving Paul his third entry.

So I presume that its other factors that get added in (charity work, status, Johns murder, influence, legacy etc) when decisions are made and votes are cast.

What are the factors that get you in?

I'm back from Ringo's celebration, and the best of my cell phone photos are up at Instagram: 1 2 3 4 5

I got there a bit too late to get a good picture-taking spot. If anything decent came from my DSLR, I'll share. I know I caught a couple of Ringo doing the peace sign, but since I wasn't right up front, by the time you zoom in, they're a bit crap. But that's okay, I just wanted to be a part of it all. The first guy in line got there the night before, and the second person got there at 4am. There was no way.

The ceremony started a few minutes before noon. Don Was introduced John Varvatos, who introduced Ringo. There were a few jokes about John Varvatos finally turning Ringo into a male model. Then Ringo had us do a test-run of the peace-and-love moment we would do at noon. And then David Lynch said a few words about the initiative to raise money for bring Transcendental Meditation to "at-risk" children and adults.

At noon, we all held up the peace sign, then Ringo posed for selfies with his onstage guests. I think after that we were lead in singing happy birthday to Ringo. Then things got wacky. The cupcakes were brought out, and then Ringo and a couple of other people started tossing out rubber bracelets – white ones that said Peace and Love and black ones that said #peacerocks . I couldn't get photos of Ringo tossing them for all the people jumping in front of me trying to catch one (and, yes, I got one). But I did watch him for a bit. And that was my favorite moment because, as someone once pointed out, Ringo once had this reputation as being this fun, wild guy, and now he's more and laid-back, and as he ran around with a big smile, it seemed we got a little glimpse of the gleeful kid still inside.

It was brief but fun. How many times do you get to sing Happy birthday to a Beatle in the flesh?
