GW Beatles Blog: Top 5 Guitar Solos on Ringo Starr Songs
Obviously, we don't mean songs on which Ringo Starr plays guitar. We mean Ringo songs that feature great solos by guitarists playing on his sessions.
Today, July 7, is Ringo Starr's 71st birthday.
So I figured I'd celebrate this most joyous of occasions by gathering up five songs that feature the best guitar work to be found on Ringo's solo albums.
After all, from 1970's Sentimental Journey through 2010's Y Not, Ringo's albums have featured guest appearances by several top-shelf guitarists (and bassists, singers, keyboardists and fellow drummers), including George Harrison, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Joe Walsh, Stephen Stills, Robert Randolph, Jeff Lynne and Peter Frampton, not to mention Guitar World blogger Laurence Juber.
So, as promised, here are five solo Ringo Starr songs with guitar work that really stands out.
In fact, I'd go so far as to awkwardly call this list "The Top Five Guitar Solos on Ringo Starr Songs."
05. PRIVATE PROPERTY from Stop and Smell the Roses (1981). Guitarist: Laurence Juber.
This tune, written by Paul McCartney, is one of three songs that Paul and his crew (including his wife Linda, Wings guitarist Laurence Juber and pedal steel guitarist Lloyd Green) contributed to Ringo's Stop and Smell the Roses sessions.
Juber's brief but brilliant solo is near the end of the song. NOTE: The song itself doesn't start until 1:04 in the video below.
