Move over, Sir Paul McCartney — there’s a new knight in town.
In a statement to E! News, Ringo said, “It’s an honor and a pleasure to be considered and acknowledged for my music and my charity work, both of which I love. Peace and love. Ringo.”
The Queen has been giving out New Year’s honors since the 19th century to recognize top figures.
Huge congrats Sir Ringo! Sir Richard Starkey has a nice ring to it. Best drummer best pal! X Paul pic.twitter.com/ew5PuxhEv1
