Happy birthday Ringo

This is very cool.

Ringo Starr, touring with this year's all-star band, was surprised on his 70th birthday this week when former Beatle and band mate Paul McCartney made a surprise appearance on stage to perform "Birthday."

Check out the YouTube video. That's none other than Manatee County resident Rick Derringer on stage playing guitar.

That has to be a highlight of Rick's storied rock 'n' roll, Hoochie Koo, Hang On Sloopy career.
