* OlderThanTheyLook: He's 74, but he looks like he could be in his 40's (and with a little face cream, even ''late 30's''. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:20110626_102_All-Starr-Band-in-Paris_Ringo-Starr_WP.jpg Seriously.]]), and doesn't look a day over 50. * OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: His real name is Richard.

Added DiffLines:
* RagsToRiches: Was maybe the poorest of all four Beatles as a child, having lived in low-income housing to a single-parent family, missing much of his education due to frequent illness, but he became very well-to-do as Beatlemania took off.

* PrecisionFStrike: According to [[http://www.beatlesbible.com/forum/ringo-starr/interesting-interview-with-maureen/ this interview with his first wife Maureen]], he used one of these right before he (temporarily) walked out on the White Album sessions. (It's especially funny when you contrast him with [[JohnLennon John]], master of the ClusterFBomb.)

Aside from his musical career, he's also a pretty accomplished actor, starring in the prehistoric comedy film ''Film/{{Caveman}}'', and had a co-starring role with Creator/PeterSellers in ''TheMagicChristian'', and has appeared in many other films over the years. He sang the theme song for a 2013 revival special of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''.

* BoringButPractical: When listening to his work with the Beatles, if you're not paying attention, you might never notice him. If you ''do'' pay attention... He contributed creative drum parts to the Beatles' songs, effortlessly adapting to whatever the others needed. He is very, very good at keeping time, and fluffed a grand total of ''twelve takes'' in the entirety of the Beatles' recording career. For every casual fan who thinks he's "just okay", there's a musician/drummer who thinks [[SimpleYetAwesome he's awesome]]. And [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqeBt5ZO4mU here's testimonials by some of the great drummers of the late 20th and early 21st centuries]], explaining exactly why they think Ringo is awesome.

-->"I left because I felt two things: I felt I wasn't playing great, and I also felt that the other three were really happy and I was an outsider. I went to see John, who had been living in my apartment in Montagu Square with Yoko since he moved out of Kenwood. I said, 'I'm leaving the group because I'm not playing well and I feel unloved and out of it, and you three are really close.' And John said, 'I thought it was you three!' So then I went over to Paul's and knocked on his door. I said the same thing: 'I'm leaving the band. I feel you three guys are really close and I'm out of it.' And Paul said, 'I thought it was you three!'"

* CallBack: Ringo's solo works are super-overloaded with this trope, referencing his personal and professional history on a regular basis, musically and lyrically, often with SelfDeprecation or affection. Every line from the title track to ''Postcards From Paradise'' deliberately references a Beatles or solo hit (or Beatles-era composition).
