Ringo Starr has insisted that he has no plans to retire.The Beatles drummer celebrated his 71st birthday last July, but recently told USA Today that he doesn't need to stop performing in order to enjoy his golden years."As long as I can hold the sticks, I can play… I want to put a jam band together, where we do a two-minute song and a 40-minute fade like the Grateful Dead," Starr quipped.He went on to say: "I joke that I'll end up in a blues band and play very, very slow."http://www.digitalspy.com/music/news/a363357/ringo-starr-ill-retire-when-i-cant-hold-a-drum-stick.html
