Ringo Starr filming documentary about life in The Beatles

Ringo Starr is making a documentary about his life.

The Beatles legend is tired of hearing myths and lies about himself and has decided to reveal the truth He said: "It's an anthology we are doing on me."

The 66-year-old drummer, who battled alcoholism after The Beatles split, will film the programme and speak to the people who know him best in the music industry.

A source told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "To most of the general public, Ringo is still the Liverpudlian who simply got lucky by hooking up with Lennon and McCartney at the right time.

"Less is generally known about Ringo's story. He is speaking to people such as Beatles producer Sir George Martin in the film, and it is hoped people will go away with a better understanding of him."

Ringo was once described by the late John Lennon as the "heart" of The Beatles.
The documentary is set to be broadcast on British TV next year.

I'm pleased to hear this news. Ringo wasn't hanging around and only got lucky; Paul and John sought him out. Because they'd met him in Hamburg and probably saw him playing drums and knew he was the right one for the band. The documentary will surely reflect that. I hope it puts a lot of false and pernicious misconceptions right.
Viva Ringo!

I  was hoping that this would be finished by now, it looks like it will be very interesting.
been waiting for over a year, but haven't anything recently on it.
When it's done, i hope it will be released on dvd too.

Can't wait to see that. The George Martin Anthology would be quite interesting, too.

I'd love to see a Ringo Starr documentary. He got rather short shrift in the biography department compared to the others.

But then he didn't join the group until August '62.  :)

Yes, but I meant the lack of dedicated biographies about Ringo. He has, like, 2, neither very good. John has a billion. Paul and George fall somewhere between.
