I think this Rolling Stone article deserved its own thread, and I couldn't find another one that fit. But if there is one, feel free to move. Thanks!

Since the Beatles called it quits in 1970, the three men who stood in front of the stage have had no problem building their legacies — John Lennon wrote the iconic "Imagine " and "Give Peace A Chance ," George Harrison released All Things Must Pass and spent time as a Traveling Wilbury, Paul McCartney headlines Super Bowl halftime shows and Olympic opening ceremonies. Drummer Ringo Starr , alas, has not been afforded the same luxury: After a string of hit singles in the early Seventies, he's mostly been out of the musical spotlight, reappearing as a consummate session man (he's drummed for Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Ben Harper among others) or as a voice actor.

Starr's Award for Musical Excellence at this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will give the drummer some well-deserved, and long-overdue, props as both a sideman and a solo artist. In the latter role, he's released 18 albums, with his latest, Postcards From Paradise, due this month. Catch up with the career of our cover star with these 20 songs.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George
