The first few years after the Beatles split, Ringo Starr had bragging rights on his mates.Already a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a Beatle, Starr will be inducted this weekend as an individual, joining John, Paul and George with that distinction.Besides Starr, new inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday will be Green Day, Bill Withers, Lou Reed, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joan Jett, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and the "5" Royales.McCartney told Rolling Stone magazine recently that, when reminded Starr wasn't in the hall on his own, he vowed to see what he could do.Only an occasional singer and lyricist with the Beatles, Starr has maintained an active recording career, particularly since getting sober in the late 1980s.Starr's "All Starr Band" of rotating musicians, an ingenious device to keep an active live career, is already more than a quarter-century old.Being a featured player on at least one hit single is a job requirement, so band members can rotate in the spotlight with Ringo.
