Ringo Starr was the last person to join The Beatles, but he was a big part of it. Ringo’s humble nature helped save them from the same fate as Elvis Presley in shooting the Fab Four to world fame. As it turns out, John Lennon didn’t forget Ringo’s impact at the beginning of his relationship with Yoko Ono, which is pure Ringo.
John Lennon’s introduction of Yoko Ono into The Beatles affected the group
John said he had no interest in The Beatles after meeting Yoko. That was in 1966, but John continued with the Fab Four until they broke up in 1970. The rest of The Beatles were not happy about Yoko’s stay.
Paul McCartney admitted that he did not like Yoko, but he understood that John needed to find a new relationship after the death of John’s first marriage.
George Harrison gave it a very realistic impression. Express wrote that John reminded George of insulting Yoko to his face. George said his friend, Bob Dylan, told him that Yoko had a “bad name” in New York. John and George argued about Yoko performing at The Concert for Bangladesh years later.
Ringo had a pure Ringo response to Yoko Ono, and John never forgot.

Ringo became one of the most famous and respected drummers because of his work with The Beatles, but he never let his head down. Even at the peak of the Fab Four, Ringo (wrongly) said he was no good as a drummer.
He played in some of the most famous songs and had beautiful halls and landmarks, but Ringo did not elevate himself above others. It was like his first meeting with Yoko Ono, and John never forgot it (via Express):
“Ringo was as good as they come…Lennon revealed that Starr was very welcoming when Ono first arrived. [He] remember: ‘Ringo was fine, that’s how it is [his wife] Maureen [Cox]but both really give us that.’”
John Lennon explained how Ringo Starr responded to Yoko Ono about The Beatles
Ringo’s response to Yoko became a regular part of The Beatles’ daily activities, not to hold back but to embrace change. But he didn’t. He didn’t seem to want to make an immediate impression. The same attitude that helped keep the Fab Four at the height of their popularity was in place when John brought Yoko into the fold. 1966’s Ringo was the single that helped put The Beatles on the charts in 1963. One rocker called him the approachable Beatle because he never cheated . Ringo’s reaction to Yoko’s presence proves 100% true.

John’s bringing Yoko into the fold caused some hostility in The Beatles, from Paul and George. Ringo’s response was pure, Ringo, and he stayed that way even as the Fab Four blazed away.
The Beatles fought like brothers, but they stuck together like brothers despite the hatred. John, Paul, and George also contributed to Ringo’s third album. When John died, Ringo abandoned his Bahamas vacation and flew to Yoko’s side to support her.
Ringo Starr’s response to Yoko Ono is 100% true Ringo, and John Lennon will never forget it. The drummer showed his kindness to Yoko in the 1960s and it wasn’t because he consoled her after John’s death.
