The Beatles may have broken up almost 50 years ago, but drummer Sir Ringo has been keeping himself busy with his solo career ever since. In fact, it’s now been 30 years since he started touring with his supergroup, Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band. And Ringo may be about to turn 79-years-old, but the former Beatle still gets struck by bouts of stage fright. Speaking with NBC News’ TODAY, Ringo revealed how he deals with it.
Ringo continued: “I do one ritual while I’m touring.
“That is an hour and half every night before I go on stage.
“I have a baked potato, some vegetables and a vegetable drink. And that keeps me settled.”
Last Christmas, Ringo joined Sir Paul McCartney for a Beatles reunion at the latter’s final O2 Arena performance.
Paul invited Ringo and The Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood on stage to perform in an iconic Beatles reunion supergroup.
