Ringo Starr Thanks God He Finally Found Religion

Ringo Starr

Claiming he has been searching for God since 1960s, Ringo Starr who will turn 70 later this year thanks God as he has found religion.

The Beatles legend Ringo Starr has finally found religion as he prepares to turn 70 later this year - insisting he has been searching for God "since the 1960s." The drummer will celebrate the milestone birthday in July 2009, and he is adamant that after years of excess in his "Fab Four" hey-day he has finally found enlightenment.

He says, "'I feel the older I get, the more I'm learning to handle life. Being on this quest for a long time, it's all about finding yourself. For me, God is in my life. I don't hide from that. I think the search has been on since the 1960s. I stepped off the path there for many years and found my way back onto it, thank God."

Starr's new found faith comes four decades after his late bandmate John Lennon famously claimed The Beatles were "more popular than Jesus" - causing uproar in Christian countries around the world.

    As an original fan of the Beatles and as a person who subscribed to the first fan magazine even before they hit the US, I can tell you that Paul was raised Catholic. I believe he believes in something larger than himself, but that God may be more of an abstract idea. Ringo was "Church of England", as he said. ...the Anglican faith. He strayed, as he will admit, and all the Beatles dabbled in Eastern faiths after falling under the spell of the Maharishi. I'm happy Ringo is back to his faith. He's a wonderful man, the heart of the Beatles. And a very kind soul. I love you, Ringo!
