HearSay Live Review: Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band, final show at the Greek…

Sat 21 Jul – Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band
August 16th will mark the 50th anniversary of Starr's joining the Beatles, although he probably won't be doing much to celebrate. "It was a wonderful time," he was quoted, "but it was so long ago. I'm doing this now." "This" is the 12th incarnation of Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band, which wrapped up its five-week U.S. tour Saturday at the Greek Theatre, and I was lucky enough to catch the show. I'd never seen him, and was curious to find out if he still had the stamina to make it through a full set, and being their were no openers, I'd hoped we'd be in for a long evening-given the amount of hits between the artists.
I'm really going to try to get through this review without using the lazy, tired, and painfully obvious cliche of mentioning how he "got by with a little help from his friends," yuk, yuk....
