LOS ANGELES (AP) — A star for former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has been added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
At a whimsical ceremony outside the Capitol Records building, Starr’s name was unveiled as the 2,401st star on the sidewalk attraction. The Hollywood Walk of Fame also marked its 50th anniversary of groundbreaking Monday.
Those by Starr’s side for the unveiling included actress-wife Barbara Bach, musicians Jay Walsh and Ben Harper, producer Don Was, director David Lynch and actor Noah Wyle.
