Music Monday “Ringo Starr tour Part 2”

Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band performs

I went  to a Ringo Starr concert on July 4, 2012 at Orange Beach, AL and enjoyed it very much and here are some of the songs I heard that night:

Although the  All Starr Band members come from varying corners of the music  world,  Rundgren says he expects them to be playing as a cohesive unit when they  hit the stage.

“The rehearsals are copious — 10 days of  rehearsal, I think, for what  ultimately is a five-week tour,” he  reveals.  “That’s a lot of time for  people to kind of relax when you  learn stuff, but also to get to know each  other.”

While Rundgren  is excited about this year’s trek, he admits that he  experienced a bit  of unpleasantness with an unnamed All Starr Band member  during his other  times playing on the tour.

“Every once in a while, there’ll be a  very unhappy person and for some  reason I am the magnet for their  unhappiness,” he explains.  “I’m having  too much fun, I guess, and so  they get especially indignant at me.  But  this time I think it’s [a]  pretty even-keeled bunch of guys.”

Rolie, meanwhile, will be  making his debut appearance on an All Starr Band  outing.  In preparing  for the trek, he discovered some interesting details  about Ringo’s  career.

“I never realized how many hit songs he sang on until I started really  looking at them,” he tells ABC News Radio.

With  regard to participating in the tour, he says, “It’s just interesting as  heck.  You know, totally different from what I do, but I’m really  looking  forward to it.  It’s gonna be a lot of fun and the group is  great.   The musicians are terrific.”
