August 14: "Starr Time: A Celebration of Ringo Starr's Contributions to The Beatles" at the Chicago Fest for Beatles Fans
The Chicago Fest for Beatles Fans launched yesterday and will continue through tomorrow. I make my Chicago Fest debut on Sunday:
Sunday, 14 August 2016, 4:00-5:00 p.m.
The Fest for Beatles Fans: Hyatt Regency O'Hare, 9300 Bryn Mawr Ave, Rosemont, IL
Starr Time: A Celebration of Ringo Starr's Contributions to the Beatles
Contrary to popular belief, Ringo Starr was an integral component of the Beatles. This 60-minute program explains how and why Ringo replaced the band's previous percussionist, Pete Best, and celebrates Ringo's contributions to the Beatles through his singing, drumming, and songwriting.
In preparation for this program, I've posted six new BEATLES MINUTE videos focusing on Ringo's drumming. The full series can be found by clicking here; the new Ringo-specific videos can be found below.
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
