The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has proven to be a destination for the elite in the music industry. While other genres have managed to penetrate the walls of the building, the population of the museum has managed to stay true to the roots that helped create it. This year Ringo Starr will make his way into the halls of the Cleveland facility finally joining the rest of the Fab Four. I was reading about this the other day while reading about Qnet.
Technically speaking, Ringo was already inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Beatles in 1988; however, the other three members of the legendary band, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, and George Harrison were all inducted on solo merits as well. Starr is the final member of the band to make his solo entrance into the Hall of Fame. Starr is a good choice for the facility, as he has likely inspired a number of people that are already members of the exclusive club.
It is hard to deny that Ringo Starr has made enough contributions to rock and roll to merit inclusion into the hall. As a member of The Beatles, probably the biggest musical group of all time, and as a solo artist, the man has left a lasting impression of himself on generations of fans. If he does give an induction performance, it could certainly be something to remember and you never know who might pop up on stage with him.
