R.S on R.S

I titled this post "R.S on R.S", but what does that mean? Well, it just so happens that today {Friday 27 March, 2015} Ringo Starr is featured on the cover of Rolling Stone; R.S on R.S. 


It's no secret that Ringo has had a pretty great start to the new year. We've found out the beloved musician will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by who other than Paul McCartney, he's been touring the world with his fabulous All-Starr Band, and coming at the end of this month {31 March} he will be releasing his eighteenth solo album, Postcards From Paradise! Starr now finds himself back on the cover of Rock and Roll, Music lovers favorite magazine, Rolling Stone; his first time since 1981.


What can we expect from this article? Ringo has gone into depth with Rolling Stone about his early days in Liverpool, from his young, ill and poor childhood, to a quick recap on his fame with The Beatles. You can also expect to read the cover story about Ringo's copping with alcohol and drugs along with his actions towards recovery, because "No, No, No, No he can't take it no more..." . Where the now recovered addict states,
"It gets really lonely, you know. It's just really cold and lonely. It's miserable disease, in the end. There's a crowd of you, and it's lonely. Because that's all you're doing is getting fucked, you know. But I haven't been that lonely since." -Rolling Stone

 Lastly, Ringo discusses his thoughts on a Beatle reunion if John Lennon and George Harrison were still with us {In a physical form } today.

Starr reported,
"I think the stumbling block was just sitting around and saying, 'OK, let's do it.' And we never got to that. You know, we did in twos, we talked about it. But I think if we had just relaxed behind it long enough, we still had the songs, and we still could play. We could have put it together. And we could have done 'A Day in the Life.' Of course, it's ended now. John and George are gone." -Rolling Stone
