Ringo Starr is back touring and he wouldn’t have it any other wayRingo Starr is feeling 'ready to rock' ahead of his U.S. tour with his All-Starr BandThe two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee recently spoke to CNN about his current tour with his All-Starr Band.“We all have a lot of fun. I mean, I love to play, you know, as a drummer it’s pretty awkward to go out just on your stage on your own. You need a few guitars and I call up friends … I had to stop calling people, otherwise, we’d been like an orchestra.”The band is considered a rock supergroup, with a rotating lineup of Starr’s musician buddies that has featured everyone from its current members like Colin Hay to former members Joe Walsh and Billy Preston.Last year, Starr had to pause his North American tour after testing positive for COVID-19. The tour, which is primarily taking part on the West Coast with dates in states like California, Arizona and Nevada, will wrap up on June 17.
