Ringo Starr once revealed the happy way the Beatles got on The Ed Sullivan Show and he was right about how it changed their careers

Ringo Starr has been in the music business for six decades and he shows no signs of slowing down. The drummer rose to fame playing with the Beatles, but those years represent only a fraction of his career. He has contributed to a number of other artists’ classic albums (and not just as a drummer), in addition to his steady stream of solo work and concert tours. Ringo’s career might have been very different had it not been for a chance encounter with Ed Sullivan that propelled The Beatles to international superstardom.
