Ringo to be inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Ringo got a phone call from Paul, who told him he was about to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Ringo Starr is finally going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015. Previously, The Beatles as a band was inducted in 1988, John Lennon posthumously in 1994, Paul McCartney in 1999 and George Harrison posthumously in 2004.

Rolling Stone has an interview with Ringo about this, where he also says that his new album is finished and talks a bit about the upcoming tour.

The induction ceremony will be held on April 18th, 2015 in Cleveland, Ohio, and the drummer will be inducted by his bassman, Paul McCartney, who said he was looking for something to do that night.

Also, hopefully this encourages apple to release a apple box swt for Ringo. His 75th year should be a busy one!

One more thing, i assume this makes the beatles the only band to have all members inducted individually (not to mention manager and producer)?
