Now that's smokin' with style!
Yesterday was the 73rd birthday of Richard Starkey, better known as Ringo Starr. Everyone loves our birthday boy for being the drummer of The Beatles.
The Beatles took the world by storm alright, and their legacy is so strong that they continue to influence listeners and musicians from yesteryears to generations beyond. But most of the time though, it was either John (Lennon) or Paul (McCartney) who got the most from the spotlight; the drummer boy never usually got as much attention.
In this photo by famous Robert Whitaker, though, the focus is on none other than Ringo. Ringo dons a trendy vertically-striped coat, and that adorable mop-top with colossal sideburns hairstyle of his, as he casually lights a cigarette. You can even see the cigarette brand since he’s holding the pack with his other hand.
