Ringo Starr Awarded OBE

Ringo Starr can finally be called Sir Ringo Starr after he was awarded the Order of the British Empire following a Knighthood at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday morning.

This comes 21 years after former band mate Paul McCartney received his and 53 years after The Beatles received their Member of the British Empire awards.

The honor comes for Starr's services to music during a career spanning more than half a century.

Joining Ringo in the ceremony was Bee Gees legend Barry Gibb, TV host Eamon Holmes and former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg.

Ringo was also the last member of The Beatles to be inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
