No bad blood here!
Ringo Starr graciously accepted the Beatles' Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award alongside his former band mate’s widow, Yoko Ono, after years of a reported feud between Ono and the two surviving Beatles.
Though fellow band member Paul McCartney was not on hand to help accept the award at Saturday’s ceremony, Starr appeared to have no hesitation in letting Ono participate on behalf of her late husband John Lennon.
For those who wondered if McCartney’s absence was due to Ono, it was clear that any resentment between the two had been put behind them when McCartney warmly greeted and embraced the musician in the audience during the Grammys broadcast.
The former Beatles’ wife and her son with Lennon, Sean, were also caught dancing to McCartney and Starr’s surprise performance of McCartney’s recent single “Queenie Eye.”
The crowd went absolutely wild for the pair after Julia Roberts announced, “Sir Paul McCartney…with a little help from his friend, Ringo Starr!”
Starr, the drummer for the group, also had a chance to perform solo, choosing to sing his 1973 hit “Photograph,” while vintage pictures of the Fabulous Four popped up behind him.
The two remaining band members are set to perform together again on the upcoming special, “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles,” which will honor the 50th anniversary of the group’s first appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”
