Skiffle had jazz, blues, folk and American folk influences and used manufactured and homemade instruments. Most of the UK '60s groups grew up with skiffle played by the likes of Lonnie Donegan, Chas McDevitt and The Vipers Skiffle Group.

In 1959 Ringo joined Rory Storm and The Hurricanes. Another member of the future Beatles also wanted to join the group even though he had become a member of The Quarrymen, (what happened to them). George Harrison had asked Rory Storm if he could join but Rory's mother wouldn't let him because he was too young. In 1960 Richard who was known as Ritchie became Ringo. On the 14 Aug 1962 John Lennon asked him to join The Beatles, on the 16 Aug 1962 Brian Epstein fired drummer Pete Best and on the 18 Aug 1962 Ringo played his first gig with The Beatles.

Ringo Starr had four Top 10 hits on the UK singles chart between 1971 and 1974. On the Billboard Hot 100 between 1971 and 1975 he had seven Top 10 hits which included two number one hits. He remains the only ex-Beatle not to have had a solo number one hit on the UK singles chart.
