Ringo Starr emotional tribute to John Lennon’s courage and talent ‘That’s why I loved him’

Ringo addressed longstanding reports that his bandmate, one of the greatest musicians of all time with an instantly recognisable voice, lacked confidence in his own singing abilities.

He said: “John always wanted a lot of echo on his voice. He had a great voice and when he was singing, he gave all of that. I don’t feel personally he was insecure about his voice. Everybody wants to be someone else, to be different.”

The album had followed John and Yoko’s exploration of ‘Primal Scream therapy” as a way to unleash their inner selves, and the new music introduces a raw, uninhibited edge to John’s voice.

Ringo added: “I can’t say enough about this record because there’s no downside to it. I think it may have had something to do with the Primal Scream, because there’s quite a bit of screaming on it. That was the emotional place I feel he was at, at that time.”

Both Ringo and Yoko paid tribute to John’s honest soul-searching on the album.
