Beatles legend Ringo Starr was honoured with a Legacy Award at the Musicians Hall of Fame ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee, on Sunday night. The singer, 83, was inducted as an inaugural recipient of the Joe Chambers Musicians Legacy Award at Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum.

Ringo flashed up a peace sign, reminiscent of his catchphrase ‘peace and love’, as he posed at the podium. Joe Chambers, whom the award is named after, was a Nashville musician and a co-founder of the Museum.

It featured two of his former bandmates: John Lennon, as Ringo sang a cover of his song, and Paul McCartney who contributed musically. The three men, along with George Harrison, rose to fame as members of iconic rock band The Beatles.

Although they formed in 1960, drummer Ringo was the last to join in 1962, and the group would go on to become the best-selling music act of all time. Ringo replaced drummer Pete Best who is affectionately referred to as ‘the fifth Beatle’.
