Ringo Starr had a little help from his friends as he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Beatles drummer was recognised at a ceremony in the US as "one of the greatest and most creative drummers" in the music genre's history.

Starr was introduced by Sir Paul McCartney and humbly told the crowd, which included Yoko Ono, "My name is Ringo and I play drums".

The 74-year-old is the last of the Fab Four to be inducted into the Hall of Fame for his solo work.

He was joined onstage by Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh for a rendition of Starr's 1971 hit Don't Come Easy, before performing Beatles classic With A Little Help From My Friends with Sir Paul.
