Ringo Starr went through a rough patch when The Beatles broke up. Despite his hit solo songs giving him a career of his own, he missed the bandmates he called his brothers. When the drummer lived with John Lennon in California in the 1970s, John’s girlfriend called Ringo’s room the den of darkness. He refused to let in daylight as he recovered from the excessive drinking he and his roommates did, and he lived that way for years. Ringo knew he needed help, but his heavy drinking made him wait years to find it.

Ringo Starr knew he needed help to deal with his drinking, but he procrastinated for years

Ringo didn’t like the press covering The Beatles’ drug use in the 1960s. Still, he has become very candid about his reliance on alcohol in his post-Fab Four days. The drummer admitted he drank 16 bottles of wine a day when he reached the depths of his addiction.
