Can anyone provide the details on how Ringo came to invite Wally to join his new All Starr Band?  I'd love to know.  Thanks.

Ah, c'mon.  You could at least tell us if Wally received a phone call from Ringo, or if the two just happened to run into one another at the grocery store.  I just think its really cool Wally was asked to be a part of the new incarnation.

I don't think anyone really knows the story!  I think we might just have to ask Ringo!!!

I talked to Wally last night. He is having a blast and said that everyone in the band are super nice guys and that Ringo is the best. They all have their own hotel rooms in every city but they still hang out together after the shows. I don't think Wally even knows who exactly made the decision to choose him, but I think I mentioned before that one night when we were rehearsing Wally got a phone call from Ringo and our jaws just dropped. We had to listen to the message Ringo sent a couple of times for it to kick in. I'll keep you updated on any info Wally passes along.

if you are on facebook, be sure to check out pictures of Ringo's 70th birthday on Rick Derringer's page.  I spotted none other than our own WP rubbing elbows with Sir Paul!
How cool is that?!?!?!

Here's a few articles on links that I like!

I was in NY at this show and I'm telling you.....nothing can beat that energy in that room for a concert!  And watch the video at the end!  Between when everyone came onstage for With A Little Help From My Friends and Paul McCartney's Hoffner coming onstage before Paul, the crowd went simply crazy!  It was an amazing moment indeed!

Here is an interview with Wally:
