Ringo Starr’s first band missed their chance to share a bill with Eddie Cochran, but it might have saved the Beatles

Before adding Ringo Starr as their drummer and making their mark on the music world, the Beatles drew inspiration from American musicians. Artists like Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry and Little Richard influenced the Fab Four and countless English musicians. Eddie Cochran was another influence on the development of English rock stars. Ringo’s first band missed a chance to share the same bill with the legendary rocker, and it might have saved the Beatles as we know them.
