Ringo quits the Roundheads.

It seems that change is in the wind for our beloved Ringo.  It seems that he is forging a new path with a new band.  Ringo and the Roundheads are no more.  The run that Ringo had with his pals the Roundheads seemed a good fit, and it lasted a long while.  Vertical Man is one of our favorite Ringo records.  I guess he just wanted something fresh.  

Here’s what we’ve read.

Ex-Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has announced he has split from his group The Roundheads.

In a matter-of-fact update, the 66-year-old singer and drummer made the announcement wearing his trademark shades.

On a recorded message on http://www.ringostarr.com from Los Angeles, he reportedly said: “I have parted company from The Roundheads. That’s all over. So it’s exciting times, moving on. Change is always a little weird.”

The group released Vertical Man in 1998. It was recorded with Mark Hudson and marked the first collaboration with Ringo and The Roundheads.

Ringo and The Roundheads performed an assortment of his greatest hits including It Don’t Come Easy.

In March 2003, The Roundheads released Ringo Rama with an impromptu performance at New York’s Bottom Line. They had previously played at the venue in 1998 to launch Vertical Man.

Ringo left The Beatles in 1970 and launched a successful solo career.
