The veteran musician opens up about the biggest blessing in his life – wife of 40 years Barbara Bach

He’s one of the world’s best-known and most loved musicians. Yet away from the spotlight, Beatles drummer Ringo Starr lives a relatively low-key existence, preferring to keep his family life private.
