Starr was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April 2015. He was the last ex-Beatle to be included in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame as a solo artist. The Beatles were inducted in 1988.
Starr was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame by Paul McCartney, who described The Beatles' first show with Ringo: "We had this guy we'd never played with before, and I remember the moment when he started to play – I think it was Ray Charles, 'What'd I Say
' – and most of the drummers couldn't nail the drum part. It was a little difficult to do, but Ringo nailed it."
"And I remember the moment, standing there and looking at John and then looking at George, and the look on our faces was like, f--k you. What is this?," McCartney continued. "And that was the moment, that was the beginning, really, of the Beatles."
