Ringo Starr is one of the world's brightest musical luminaries. He has enjoyed a successful and dynamic solo career as a
singer, songwriter and drummer, an active musical collaborator and as an actor. Drawing inspiration from classic blues,
soul, country, honky-tonk and rock 'n' roll, Ringo continues to play an important role in modern music with his solo
recording and touring.
Ringo Starr's music, as a solo artist and as a Beatle, is permeated with his personality. His warmth and humour, and his
exceptional musicianship have given us songs we all know and love, including ‘It Don't Come Easy’, ‘With A Little Help
From My Friends’, ‘Yellow Submarine, ‘Don't Pass Me By’, ‘Octopus' Garden’, ‘Photograph’, ‘Back Off Boogaloo’, ‘You're
Sixteen (You're Beautiful And You're Mine)’, ‘Don't Go Where the Road Don't Go’, ‘The No No Song’ and ‘Never Without
You’.
The All Starr Band has toured consistently since its inception in 1989. Based on the concept “everybody on stage is a star
in their own right”, each concert sees Ringo performing songs from his solo and Beatles’ career and each Starr performing
hits from their own careers. Over the years the revolving line up has included such stellar artists as Joe Walsh, Dr. John,
Todd Rundgren, Timothy B. Schmidt, John Entwhistle, Peter Frampton, Sheila E., Rod Argent and Paul Carrack.
Returning to the stage for the 2011 tour are the six All Starr band members who toured with Ringo in 2010:
Rick Derringer is a noted rock guitarist, vocalist and entertainer who was just 17 when his band The McCoys recorded the
No.1 hit 'Hang On Sloopy' in the summer of 1965, knocking 'Yesterday' by The Beatles from the top spot. He later played
with both Edgar Winter and Johnny Winter and found further success with his hit single ‘Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo’ and
with his eponymous band Derringer. Throughout the 70’s and 80’s he appeared on numerous albums with artists Alice
Cooper, Richie Havens, Todd Rundgren, Cyndi Lauper, Barbra Streisand, Kiss and Steely Dan. In the mid-80’s, Derringer
discovered Weird Al Yankovic, producing music for Grammy-winning albums and videos and the 2006 Grammy Awards
brought Rick his third Grammy with his participation on the Les Paul 90th birthday tribute CD.
Born in the USA in 1953, Richard Page is best known as the singer/bassist for the multi-platinum, Grammy nominated
group Mr. Mister. In the late 70's and early 80's Richard recorded three albums under the moniker of Pages with Steve
George. Page has retained a cult following in many areas of the world. The pair formed Mr Mister in the mid 80s. The band
released three albums and had several world-wide hits, including ‘Broken Wings’ and ‘Kyrie’. They split in 1990 and a
fourth Mr Mister album, ‘PULL’ remained unreleased for 20 years. It has been remastered and is currently available on
Richard's own record label, Little Dume Records. Page has recorded two solo albums, ‘Shelter Me’ and ‘Peculiar Life’, as
well as providing backing vocals for artists such as Elton John, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Barbara Streisand and Elvis
Costello among many more. As a songwriter Page has had songs recorded by Madonna, Leona Lewis, Josh Groban, Celine
Dion and Hall & Oates to name just a few.
Wally Palmar, lead vocalist, harmonica, rhythm guitar player, and founding member of The Romantics, is amongst one of
the most recognized voices of the 80’s. The group’s self-titled debut album yielded the hit ‘What I Like About You’, which
carries on throughout the decades. Other singles include, ‘When I Look In Your Eyes’, ‘One in a Million’, and the
international hit ‘Talking In Your Sleep’. The Romantics are continuously being re-introduced to new generations today via
the extensive airplay on contemporary, rock and satellite radio, commercials and movie soundtracks. Never content to
simply rest on his red-leathered laurels, Palmar continues to write, record and tour around the world with The Romantics.
Edgar Winter is an accomplished jazz, rock and blues keyboard player and saxophonist as well as a vocalist who found
success in the early 70s and has continued to record throughout the 80s, 90s and 00s. Edgar has worked with noted
guitarists Rick Derringer and Ronnie Montrose as well as his older brother Johnny Winter (a noted blues / rock guitarist). In
1972 Edgar had a #1 hit with the instrumental ‘Frankenstein’, taken from his acclaimed album ‘They Only Come Out At
Night’. Edgar also enjoyed great success with the hit ‘Free Ride’ as well as ‘Dying To Live’ which Eminem produced for the
hit movie ‘Tupac’. Edgar Winter’s songs have appeared on the soundtracks to over 20 films.
Over the course of his 40-year career which began in the UK with the rock band Spooky Tooth, Gary Wright has played
before millions of fans and his music has appeared in blockbuster movies & TV shows as well as being played on radio
every day. A pioneer of using synthesizers in pop music as heard on his worldwide hits ‘Dream Weaver’ and ‘Love Is Alive,’
Gary has inspired generations of mainstream artists including Eminem, Mya, Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes, Anastacia and DJ
Armand Van Helden all of whom have either sampled or covered his songs. Gary’s world-unifying vision and musical
prowess were recently displayed on ‘Connected’ his first pop-rock album for 20 years. Gary joined the All Starr Band in
2008.
Drummer and vocalist Gregg Bissonette comes from a musical family, where his father was also a drummer, his mother a
pianist, brother a bass player and sister a violinist. Gregg played on three albums by former Van Halen vocalist David Lee
Roth, with the first ‘Eat ‘Em And Smile’ one of the most acclaimed rock albums of the mid 80s. Since then Gregg has
recorded and toured with a number of artists, including Toto, ELO, Santana, Andrea Bocelli, The Maynard Ferguson Big
Band, Spinal Tap and James Taylor. Having first worked and toured with Ringo Starr in 2003 (alongside his brother Matt on
bass and vocals), Gregg has been an All Starr member since 2008 and this is his third tour as an All Starr.
