Edgar Winter On Tour With Ringo Starr!

Scientologist Edgar Winter returns to Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band for the All-Starr Band's 10th tour!

Edgar Winter had such classic rock hits as "Frankenstein" and "Free Ride", that still play on classic rock radio stations all the time.

Edgar seems to always be touring. One of the last times I saw him was at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas playing with David Lee Roth.

This year's All-Starr Band also includes Colin Hay (from Men At Work), and one of my all-time favorites Billy Squier. They will be playing LA's Greek Theater on August 2nd. It's a really fun show. I've seen Ringo's All-Starr Band play before when an acquaintance of mine, Timothy B. Schmidt from the Eagles was playing bass with them. They do all the Beatles hits that Ringo sang on plus the hits of the other band members. It's definitely a night of hits!
Ringo has always been my favorite Beatle, probably because of his good sense of humor. He's also the one that inspired me to start playing drums.

A culture is only as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamed by artists. — Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard
