    Ringo Starr

    Jew Score:



    (Richard Starkey)
    July 7, 1940 —

    Maybe Ringo wasn't as talented as John. Or as successful as Paul. Or as handsome as George. But was he Jewish? Well...

    When the Beatles performed in Montreal, Ringo was accompanied onstage by a bodyguard. Why? Because he received death threats. Why? Because some people thought he was Jewish.

    So there you have it! Except...

    Except for one small detail; to quote Ringo, "The one major fault is, I'm not Jewish."

    Well, that settles it. Ringo's only connection to Jews is his wife, the half-Jewish former Bond girl Barbara Bach. But it doesn't look like he had Jewish heritage, and he definitely did not convert after marriage.

    Sad, really. Because we would take Ringo. It's not like we can have John. Or Paul. Or George...

    Verdict: Sadly, not a Jew.
