Ringo Starr wears John Lennon-inspired shades while out with wife Barbara Bach

Ringo Starr was recently spotted bespectacled in a pair of round shades while hitting the streets of Los Angeles in a look reminiscent of his Beatles bandmate, John Lennon.

The 81-year-old drummer, born Richard Starkey, rocked the tinted, round frames in the City of Angels while heading to a business meeting in West Hollywood.

While the couple, who’ve been married since 1981, don’t share any biological children, Starr shares three adult children with ex-wife, Maureen Starkey. Bach also has kids of her own, sharing her two children with first husband, Italian businessman Augusto Gregorini.

Starr’s latest project is new coffee table book, “Lifted: Fab Images and Memories in My Life With the Beatles From Across the Universe,” sharing via his publisher’s website, “I am not writing this book as a Beatle historian. I’m writing this book as a Beatle — and there’s only a couple of us who can do that.” 

The Beatles.
“I’m writing this book as a Beatle — and there’s only a couple of us who can do that,” Starr said of his new tome.

He meant that quite literally, as he and Paul McCartney are the only living members of the iconic group. Lennon was shot and killed by obsessed fan, Mark David Chapman, in 1980 while George Harrison lost his battle with lung cancer in 2001.
