Beatles drummer "Ringo Starr has been named a knight...(he) was selected for knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II in her 2018 New Year's Honors list..." according to the NY Times.
Starr, 77, said, "It's an honor and a pleasure to be considered and acknowledged for my music and my charity work, both of which I love. Peace and love. Ringo."
Paul McCartney was knighted in 1997.
George Harrison died of lung cancer in November 2001, John Lennon died of a gunshot in December 1980. Sir Paul and the soon-to-be knighted Ringo continue to be musically active.
