Guest Starrs: The Top 5 Guitar Solos on Ringo Starr Songs
01. BACK OFF BOOGALOO A-side of a 1972 Apple Records single, now available on Photograph: The Very Best of Ringo Starr.
Guitarist: George Harrison.
George Harrison's slide guitar playing is all over this Richard Starkey (Ringo Starr) composition, the 1972 follow-up to Ringo's first hit single, "It Don't Come Easy," which also features a great solo by Harrison.
The song also features some fine drumming by Ringo, bass playing by Klaus Voormann and piano tinkling by Gary Wright.
Harrison played several great guitar solos on Ringo's records throughout the years, including "Early 1970," "Down and Out," "Wrack My Brain" and "King of Broken Hearts."
