If you ask the average person which Beatle’s solo work is not currently recognized in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, most would correctly predict Ringo Starr. If you ask that same person who had the least amount of solo hits of the Beatles they would incorrectly pick Starr, who had the exact same amount of top ten hits as John Lennon and George Harrison combined. Starr’s solo work was poppish and quirky and despite his solo success is actually very much forgotten. As a Beatle he has a shot but until the most disrespected member of the most respected band gets more credit, Ringo Starr could likely remain the only Beatle with only one induction.
