Is it an idea to put all news on Ringo's tour in one thread?

Starr at Mohegan
By MaryEllen Fillo on June 28, 2010 8:37 AM



Ringo Starr, a member of one of music's most influential and popular bands of all time, The Beatles, was inducted into Mohegan Sun's Walk of Fame Sunday. The prestigious award presentation was not only special for the former Beatles drummer who was there to unveil his star, but also the fans who turned out for the event.

    "It is so nice and great to be here," he said. "My shows started out in a tent and look at this place now.  I want to thank Mohegan Sun for putting me in the Walk of Fame."

 Starr joined The Beatles in 1962 as the band's drummer, and also did additional songwriting and vocals as part of the hugely-successful rock band.  He has gone on to a successful solo craeer that includes the recent release of his 15th studio album, Y Not.

"Ringo did speak briefly, saying he and the casino went back a long way playing
the tent (he actually had played the old bingo hall, and a tent on the property while
the arena was under construction). He asked whose star was on the floor next to his;
when he was told it was Journey, he said, 'Oh, so I'm in good company,'" she said.
