Before Ringo Starr was a Beatle, he was a member of another British rock group, Rory Storm & The Hurricanes.  A new release called Rory Storm Live At The Jive Hive has led fans to wonder if the recording is from Ringo’s era with the band.  Ringo himself clarifies, in a press statement that went out earlier today (September 11):

“It’s not me, that was done after I’d left to join the Beatles. I don’t know who the drummer was but I hope that Rory fans enjoy it anyway. The only two tracks I was on were recorded while we were in Germany in 1960, when we made a two track acetate, and for those of you in the digi world that is a-ce-tate, of ‘Mailman Bring Me No More Blues,’ a Buddy Holly song sang by Lou Walters and ‘Fever,’ and I’d love to hear those tracks ‘cause I don’t have a copy. Peace & Love, Ringo.”

So, for anyone with (presumably) rare copies of those recordings, Ringo is looking for them.  As for his current activities, he hasn’t announced any plans since wrapping his latest All-Starr Band tour over the summer.  However, Starr usually puts out live releases (either CD, DVD or both) of the different incarnations of his backing bands.
