Let's go ahead and get this out of the way

Saw him a couple of years back with his All-Starr Band. Great show.

Ringo. Don't get a big head, and remember to:

Serious question, though:  will he be able to call himself "Sir Ringo Starr", or will he have to use his
given name?

Ringo is best Beatle

Well, it's Sir Elton John, not Sir Reginald Dwight, but that would depend on if he legally changed his name to Ringo Starr or not. If he did, it's Sir Ringo Starr. If he didn't, it's Sir Richard Starkey.

Considering the knighthood is in recognition for his work under that nom de plume, I'm sure it'll be just fine to use the honorific title as Sir Ringo Starr

The man came from extraordinarily humble beginnings & now seems extremely happy,  both personally & professionally, so good for him!

We visited Liverpool a couple of years ago and took the Beatles' tour. Saw where they all grew up. John and Paul's houses were actually pretty nice. George's was alright. Ringo's old neighborhood is a total sh*thole; every house on that block is boarded up today.

Seeing as they only knight celebrities these days, the entire concept of knighthood in great Britain is nothing more than a joke.

Nice!  Ringo is the MAN!  He always played in the song, in the moment.  It was never about him, it was about the song and the show and what he was doing.  That makes him a good example of how to conduct yourself no matter what you are doing.

*sigh*

Stop. Lennon didn't say this and never would have said it. It's a bad joke from a British comic circa 1983. Stop propagating this ignorant and incorrect internet bullshiat.

Awesome.

Has had a great career; not simply because he was in one of the greatest bands of all time.

There are millions of people who think The Onion articles are real and that months with 5 Fridays only happen once every 763 years.

Ringo is so badass, he was a member of a group that basically invented music as we know it:

YOU may not but there arw a shiat ton of people on Fark who do.  And in every Beatlea thread several people who actually believe he said that try to qote it as "evidence" Ringo is a sub-par drummer. Frankly it is a bit of a time saver as it lets people bow immediately any view you might have on music is invalid. You might bor care for their music, and that is okay, but it doesn't mean they were not some of the best at what they did.

Did you intend to post that in 1460?

This was long overdue. Congratulations to both Starr and Gibb.

Would you joke about Jesus?
 
2018-01-02 01:21:04 PM  
You probably would I guess. Would you joke about Jesus and your mother at the same time? Because that's equivalent of joking about Living Beatle

It is only symbolic?  You mean if the Queen coomands a crusade to invade the holy lands, there will not be a mass joining of We Are the World Choir to take up arms and represent the knighthood?

He kinda reminds me of the proto-Dave Grohl in that he genuinely appreciates where he came from and the opportunities he has had made available for him and to be able to just play music and enjoy life.
 
2018-01-02 02:24:14 PM  
I always found it kinda ridiculous that rock stars get knighted.

I'm going to go with "Yes, I probably would joke about Jesus and my mother" as my answer.  So I'm good, right?

So when are Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Robert Plant getting their knighthoods?

Ringo Star deserves all the accolades he can get heaped on him.

John was the mind of the band.

Paul was the heart.

George was the soul.

And Ringo was the drummer.

[Ringo narrated The Point. Therefore Ringo is always best beatle ever.]
