Richard will be going on tour with Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band this fall! To quote Richard, When a Beatle calls and asks you to be in his band, how can you turn him down?
Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band has a long tradition of monster musicians dating back to the very first incarnation in 1989. That line up included Joe Walsh, Billy Prestion, Nils Lofgren, Clarence Clemons among others. This, the eleventh incarnation of the band, will feature Richard on bass and vocals along with legends Rick Derringer on guitar and Edgar Winter on keys and sax. Rounding out the line up are guitarist Wally Palmar, keyboardist Gary Wright and drummer Gregg Bissonette.
The band will start out in Niagara Falls on June 24th. The 32-date tour will cross the country and wrap up on August 7th at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
