Ringo Starr reportedly to be granted knighthood

Ringo Starr will be granted knighthood at the start of the new year, according to a report from The Sun.

The full list of recipients are set to be announced next week, and The Sun says Starr, 77, will be among them for services to music and charity.

“It came as a bolt from the blue,” The Sun quotes a family friend as saying. “Ringo was totally knocked sideways but is chuffed to bits.”

Starr’s honor comes just over two decades after Paul McCartney received the same honor in 1997.

  1. Really…ha ha
    what is is with these old raggedy ass empires, like the one we used to not love and used to know?
    That would be Britain or whatever it’s referred to these days.
    In other words, these titles like ‘sir’ and knighthood, well, mean what?
    This is not a put down of Ringo, but, I sure wouldn’t wanna have some stupid title from a nation that is living in the past and, of course, has done so much damage in the world.
    The only knighthood that should be given in English history is to Robin Hood.
    That’s it.
    Why not give Jack the Ripper and other English notables titles, after all, they made the England even more famous.
    By the way, I consider The Beatles and Jeff Lynne-ELO- as the greatest musicians, in pop/rock history.
    Can you dig what I’m sayin’?
    Sure you do
    Thank you too
