The Beatles drummer looked fab, as he was out and about in Los Angeles for a business meeting in a stylish outfit.

Ringo Starr must spend more time at the gym than on the yellow submarine! The 81-year-old rock legend looked magnificent as he walked to a business meeting on Friday March 4. The Beatle was dressed in a fashionable, yet comfortable-looking, outfit while he headed out for the meeting in the new photos, which you can see here, via DailyMail. Ringo lived up to his reputation as a member of the Fab Four with the groovy outfit.

The iconic drummer, whose real name is Richard Starkey, sported a white denim jacket with a few buttons on it, over an almost all-black outfit. He rocked a black t-shirt with a red design and a matching pair of sweatpants. He also donned a red face mask and circular pair of sunglasses that looked remarkably similar to the ones that his Beatles bandmate John Lennon wore throughout the 1970s.

Paul McCartney and his daughter Mary had a father-daughter date night at the premiere of the upcoming docuseries ‘The Beatles: Get Back’ in London.

It was a family affair at the London premiere of The Beatles: Get Back, an upcoming three-part documentary series that will offer Beatles fans an intimate glimpse of the band’s most pivotal recording sessions. Former Beatle Paul McCartney attended the premiere on Tuesday, Nov. 16 with daughter Mary, 52. The 79-year-old musician was all smiles as he posed with his photographer daughter on the red carpet, wearing a sharp navy blue suit.

Mary opted for an all black ensemble and stylish combat boots. The photographer is one of five children that the musician shares with former wives. He and late first wife Linda share Mary, as well as Heather, 58, Stella, 50, and James, 44, together; while he and second wife Heather Mills share Beatrice, 18, together. The musician wed his third and current wife, Nancy Shevell, in 2011.

He and Mary were on hand to celebrate the premiere of the upcoming Peter Jackson (known for his work on The Lord of the Rings trilogy, among others) directed documentary. Available to stream on Disney+ on Nov. 25, the docuseries will transport fans back to the making of the Beatles’ final album Let It Be, which originally had the working title Get Back. Peter consulted over 60 hours of unseen footage and more than 150 hours of unheard audio for the project, giving viewers access to private film archives.

The docuseries will feature rare footage of Paul, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison’s last live performance as a band prior to their split in 1970, as well as performances of other classic songs featured on the band’s two final albums, Abbey Road and Let it Be. Both Paul and Ringo, 81, serve as producers on the docuseries, as does Yoko Ono, wife of the late John. Ahead of the docuseries’ debut, Paul spoke to NPR’s Fresh Air about the project in a wide-ranging interview on Nov. 3.

Among the many revelations? The musician said he knew he would never top the Beatles following the band’s split — and that was OK by him. “It was quite difficult, because I didn’t know what to do at all,” he said of the period post-split. “And I didn’t really have any brainy ideas, except if I want to continue in music, maybe I’ll form another band. But then, how do you do that after The Beatles? How could anything I do be as good as The Beatles?”

He continued, “The Beatles had a very special combination of talents… as has been proved by its longevity. The stuff we did together still sounds good and still lives today. So it was a question of how can you get better than that? And I think I just have to say, ‘Well, you can’t. But if you want to keep going, you should maybe think about starting something else.’ So I did.”

A huge gaping hole in the universe.” Tom Morello also honored Charlie and emphasized the impact he had on music. “Rock n roll would not be rock n roll without the rhythm, the style, the VIBE of this incredible musician. Rest In Peace #CharlieWatts, one of the greatest and most important architects of the music we love,” said Tom. Lenny Kravitz said on Twitter that Charlie was, “The beat of The Stones,” adding, “There are no words, every groove has spoken for itself.”

A publicist confirmed that Charlie had died at 80 on Tuesday, according to Variety. The news of passing comes almost three weeks after Charlie and the band announced that he’d be sitting out of the band’s upcoming “No Filter” tour, set to hit the U.S. this fall. In an August 5 statement, Charlie announced that he’d recently undergone a surgical procedure and doctors advised he sit out the upcoming tour. He also revealed that Steve Jordan, 64, would fill in for him.

“For once my timing has been a little off. I am working hard to get fully fit, but I have today accepted on the advice of the experts that this will take a while,” Charlie said in the statement. “After all the fans’ suffering caused by COVID, I really  do not want the many fans who have been holding tickets for this tour to be disappointed by another postponement or cancellation.”

Pinguini Tattici Nucleari – Ringo Starr Lyrics

[Testo di “Ringo Starr”]

[Strofa 1]
A volte penso che a quelli come me
Il mondo non abbia mai voluto bene
Il cerchio della vita impone che per
Un Re Leone vivano almeno tre iene
Gli amici ormai si sposano alla mia età
Ed io mi incazzo se non indovino all’Eredità
Forse dovrei partire, andarmene via di qua
E cambiare la mia vita in toto tipo andando in Africa

[Pre-Ritornello]
Ma questa sera ho solo voglia di ballare
Di perdere la testa e non pensare più
Che la mia vita non è niente di speciale
E forse alla fine c’hai ragione tu

[Ritornello]
In un mondo di John e di Paul io sono Ringo Starr
In un mondo di John e di Paul io sono Ringo Starr
In un mondo di John e di Paul io sono Ringo Starr
Uoh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh uoh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh

[Strofa 2]
Tu eri Robin poi hai trovato me
Pensavi che fossi il tuo Batman ma ero solo il tuo Ted eh eh
E quando dico che spero che trovi un ragazzo migliore di me fingo
Che i migliori alla fine se ne vanno sempre e che cosa rimane? Ringo

[Pre-Ritornello]
Ma questa sera ho solo voglia di ballare
Di perdere la testa e non pensare più
Che la mia vita non è niente di speciale
E forse alla fine c’hai ragione tu

[Ritornello]
In un mondo di John e di Paul io sono Ringo Starr
In un mondo di John e di Paul io sono Ringo Starr
In un mondo di John e di Paul io sono Ringo Starr
Uoh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh uoh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh

[Bridge]
Ringo, Ringo, Ringo, Ringo
In un mondo di John e di Paul io sono Ringo Starr

[Pre-Ritornello]
Ma questa sera ho solo voglia di ballare
Di perdere la testa e non pensare più
Che la mia vita non è niente di speciale
Forse alla fine c’hai ragione tu (Perché)

[Ritornello]
In un mondo di John e di Paul io sono Ringo Starr (Ringo)
In un mondo di John e di Paul io sono Ringo Starr (Ringo)
In un mondo di John e di Paul io sono Ringo Starr (Ringo)
Uoh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh uoh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh
