Ringo Starr once mistook “Weird Al” Yankovic for another musician

After more than 60 years in the music business, Ringo Starr has met many other musicians. Of course, there was the rest of the Beatles, but the former Richard Starkey has worked with several musicians over the years. He even contributed to a classic rock album in the early 1970s, but not as a drummer. He’s worked with many musicians in his career, but Ringo once mistook “Weird Al” Yankovic for another artist and introduced him to a concert audience, and we think it happened when Ringo should have known better.

Ringo continued to work with musicians long after the Beatles broke up

Ringo had a second career in acting (which allowed him to watch an Oscar winner staring at a spoon), but he never stopped making music. All of the Beatles contributed to Ringo’s self-titled album in 1973 (the third of his seven solo works in the ’70s), but they did not play together.
