Ringo Can't Strum

RINGO STARR is a terrible guitar player and can't write songs - according to the BEATLES legend himself. Although most famously known as a drummer, Starr admits when it comes to other instruments he struggles to play more than three chords. He reveals, "I can only play guitar in E, and I can only play piano in C. Everything I've ever written, if I play it on guitar I make it in E and if I play it on piano, I do it in C. "Photograph was actually written because George (Harrison) made me play C. It's so hard, you have to get that little finger over."

That's ok Ringo, you don't have to play another instrument as long as you're around to keep on drumming and singing - we love you!
