Ringo Starr was the last member of The Beatles to get into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist. During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, he said he was only in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame because of the intervention of another celebrity.
The Beatles entered the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison entered the Hall of Fame as solo artists in 1994, 1999, and 2004, respectively. Ringo didn’t get inducted as a solo artist until 2015.
During an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, DeGeneres commented that Ringo’s induction was long overdue. She mentioned that Paul would be at the ceremony. “Well, I’m only doing it because of Paul,” Ringo commented. He said he wasn’t trying to get inducted, but Paul pushed for his entry into the Hall of Fame.

“We were just a band that made it very, very big. That’s all.” Was John Lennon’s myth-busting synopsis of The Beatles’ story, uttered during an interview with Rolling Stone. While the technical truth of that statement is inarguable, for millions around the world, The Beatles were – and remain – a huge deal more than just another band. From that first fabled meeting of John Lennon and Paul McCartney at the Woolton Village Fete in July 1957 to the spontaneous final rooftop performance atop Apple Corps’ Savile Row HQ at the culmination of the 1960s, The Beatles became one of the most seismic forces ever to impact popular culture.

Janice Mitchell is a retired criminal and civil investigator, but it was she who was the subject of an international search when, in 1964, the Cleveland Heights teenager and a friend took off for a new life. It’s all in “My Ticket to Ride: How I Ran Away to England to Meet the Beatles and Got Rock and Roll Banned in England (a True Story from 1964).”
Mitchell’s early life was tumultuous, with hard-partying parents who left their three children alone or with strangers. When Janice was in second grade, her mother abandoned the family and Janice was taken in by her great-aunt Toots, husband Mac and spiteful adult daughter Margie. Life was fine because of Mac’s kindness and devotion, but it was not to last.
At 16, Janice was a student at a Catholic high school, listening to Bobby Vinton and the Singing Nun on the radio while doing her homework. Suddenly, a lightning bolt: “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” and she “had something to live for.” Janice struck up an acquaintance with Harry Martin, a Cleveland disc jockey, when he emceed a teen dance, and he invited her to visit his station.
