Paul McCartney, a former "The Beatles" band member, took to Instagram to share a lovely photo of the celebrant. The snapshot showed Starr behind some colorful fabric with only his face in view as he bore a bright smile. McCartney wrote about Ringo, his long time pal:

"Happy Birthday, SIR RICHARD alias RINGO. Have a great day, my long time, buddy!"

Yoko Ono's post on Twitter was a photo of her and Ringo Starr, seemingly at an event. The two rocked black garbs. While Yoko Ono looked evergreen in her signature style, Starr's luminous skin contrasted with his outfit. Fans in the comments joined in the funfair and shared their well-wishes.



Last year was memorable for fans who witnessed Paul McCartney's performance at Dodger Stadium. While McCartney did beautiful renditions of his hit tracks, he decided to spice things up as he brought his former bandmate, Ringo Starr, on stage.

He also received a lifetime achievement award.


The audience's response was resounding as they cheered Ringo. Starr and McCartney had a field day juggling fans' memories with some of "The Beatles" sound including, "Helter Skelter" and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." At the time, Starr had celebrated his 79th birthday a week before.



Ringo Starr, an award-winning entertainer, was born Richard Starkey Jr., and he started playing for "The Beatles" in 1962. Ringo got his alias due to how much he fancies wearing rings.

Ringo Starr is a left-handed drummer who plays a right handed kit. He has 27 Grammy Awards nominations and was a winner nine times.

The award-winning drummer is married to Barbara Bach, a former Bond girl. She appeared alongside the fictional "James Bond" in movies like "The Spy Who Loved Me."

Starr had been inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He is also a recipient of the lifetime achievement award.
