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.
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, "It Don't Come Easy," which also features a great solo by George. The song also features some fine drumming by Ringo, bass playing by Klaus Voormann and piano tinkling by Gary Wright.
George 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."
