Yoko Ono Calls Ringo Starr “The Most Influential Beatle”


As Ringo Starr became the final member of the Beatles to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Yoko Ono proclaims that he was “the most influential Beatle”.

Ringo and the Hall of Fame finally came together last night in Cleveland Ohio where the 2015 induction ceremony took place. Speaking to Rolling Stone, Ono praised Starr saying that he “embodies peace and love”.

“John would go up and down and all that,” she said, “but Ringo was always just very gentle. And he really believed in peace and love.” Ono commented that the night would have been complete if it wasn’t for one thing: “It would have been better if George and John were here too.”

Among the others show who also entered into the Rock Roll Hall of Fame this year were Joan Jett, Green Day, Bill Withers, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the “5” Royales.
