ST. LOUIS - His floppy hair may have receded and his youthful exuberance have worn with decades of a life well-lived, but ex-Beatle Ringo Starr still gets by – with a little help from his…well, you know the rest.

The drummer, born "Richard Starkey," turned 74 Monday in Los Angeles.

Starr, ever the jovial pop star, is still touring with his All Starr Band and readying a launch of a new art exhibit. Just last month, Starr unveiled a collection of self-portraits at the Soho Contemporary Art Gallery in New York.

This October, Ringo will grace the stage at the Fabulous Fox Theatre.

We've collected a series of photos of the former Beatle and posted them below.
