How the hell can Ringo be 80? He was the Beatle with the worst health as a child and as a young adult. He was the oldest-looking Beatle...well at least until John acquired his heroin habit which aged him 10 years in the space of two. Ringo basically looked his age in the booze-soaked 70s.

And somehow Ringo looks like he is in his early 50s, and he is still going strong!! Unbelievable.

Happy 3-to-the-4th-power birthday, our dear Sir Richard! apple01 and many more apple02.

And speaking of *P*O*W*E*R* ...dig Ringo's slinky bashability in this performance, like "Helter Skelter " years early znd with bonus bump-n-grind. (He even possibly wrecks his crash cymbal halfway through!)

81 more years of Ringo! heart
