Ringo is amongst those in the Queens New Year Honours List.

Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has been awarded a knighthood for services to music and charity work as the Queen's New Year Honours are announced.

It comes 20 years after his bandmate Paul McCartney was knighted, and 17 years after George Harrison turned down an OBE.

In a short message, signed off with his trademark phrase, 77-year-old Mr Starr said: "It's great! It's an honour and a pleasure to be considered and acknowledged for my music and my charity work, both of which I love. Peace and love. Ringo."

 

Congratulations to Ringo - and about time.

When John returned his MBE to the queen, it came with a letter stating exactly why he was doing what he was doing, and that he opposed The UK’s involvement in Vietnam. Now that’s just good activism. 

Did George have a particular reason for denying the OBE? Its definitely a George move, I just don’t know the reasoning.

He turned it down because he felt insulted by it. He felt that if Paul deserved a knighthood, he deserved the same recognition, and anything less was demeaning.

Paul agreed with George on the matter too, did he not?
