Ringo Starr receives title of Knight of the British Empire

Ringo Starr received today the title of Knight of the British Empire, for the services rendered to the music. At age 77, the Beatles drummer received the title of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.


In a BBC interview, the musician commented on the honor: “This means a lot. It’s a recognition for the things we’ve done, and I was very happy to receive it.” The drummer still admitted to being nervous at the ceremony: “I was shaking a little there, alone.”

The honor came 21 years after Paul McCartney received the title, and 53 years after the Beatles in 65, were named Members of the British Empire.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
