Ringo Starr once explained why George Harrison never joined the All Starr Band

Ringo Starr rose to fame as the drummer for the Beatles, but he didn’t rest on his laurels when they disbanded. He launched a modestly successful acting career before the group disbanded, consistently releasing solo records since the 1970s (barring a semi-retirement in the 1980s), and touring with several iterations of his all-star band. Ringo and fellow Beatles George Harrison remained so close that the drummer shared some incredible final moments with his former bandmate. Though Ringo repeatedly asked George to join his all-star band, the guitarist essentially refused in the best possible George way.

Ringo Starr has been building his All-Starr Bands for more than 30 years

Ringo entered a musical hiatus following the release of his 1983 album Stop and smell the roses. When he emerged late in the decade, it was with his first version of his all-starr band. He was joined by the likes of Joe Walsh (The Eagles), Clarence Clemons (The E Street Band), and The Band’s Rick Danko and Levon Helm.
