RINGO: Won the Lottery 55 Years Ago Today

posted by Kevin O'Neill -

Ringo Starr received the phone call of a lifetime 55 years ago today.

On August 16th, 1962, Beatles manager Brian Epstein called asking if he would leave his band, Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, to replace Pete Best.  Ringo couldn't make it for the August 16th show at the Riverpark Ballroom in Chester, England, so the Fab Three had Johnny Hutchinson of The Big Three fill in that night, and at shows in Birkenhead and New Brighton.
