Ringo Starr, best known as the drummer for The Beatles, and Barry Gibb of the BeeGees were knighted by Queen Elizabeth in her 2018 New Year honors list.

Ringo Starr, 77, whose real name is Richard Starkey, is the second Beatle to be knighted, two decades after Paul McCartney.

Disco rocker, Barry Gibb, who co-founded the BeeGees with his brothers, Robin and Maurice, said he was “deeply honored, humbled, and very proud” to be knighted by the Queen. “This is a moment in life to be treasured and never forgotten. I want to acknowledge how responsible my brothers are for this honor. It is as much theirs as it is mine,” Gibb, 71, told the UK’s Press Association.
