It's Francesca, his step daughter from Barbara Bach.

thank you. I know Francesca went to Brown with Dhani, George's son, but that's all I know about her. If you don't mind me asking, how do you know this? And do you know why there were no photos of Barbara with Ringo at the wedding? He looked like he was all alone.

Thanks!

I'd like to say a word or two about Ringo's voice... I think that he don't have a great voice indeed, but that's a warm and unique voice...I just can't recall no similar voice like his. He sang very well "It Don't Come Easy", and most of songs on "Ringo" album that's his highlight. And of Beatles time, "WALHFMF" and "Octopus's Garden" are so nice to hear for me!!! What d'ya think'bout, friends??

Peace.

You know what? I agree with you, Dsnito. Ringo is not the world's best singer, but I love his voice at the same time. You're right, it's a very warm, and definitely unique voice. I can't think of anyone else who sounds like him either.

I agree too re Ringo's voice. Paul's said they used to write songs especially for his lack of vocal range. But as you guys just said, his voice is so warm it just makes me feel warm inside.

Proof of this is found in his album Sentimental Journey, a collection of revival in which he sang old time favorites. The voice is perfect for that kind of album.

Yeah Mr.Kite, good recall, I have that album though that´s not to my taste too much, but sometimes it´s nice to hear that. Standards of 40s and early 50s singers like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire and others enjoy more my parents generation as that album really does. Paul McCartney produced a track or two on that fellow´s album, if I´m not mistaken.

Peace.

And I ever say that Ringo is one of the most underrated musician or singer in the showbiz. Unfairly, I think.

Peace.

Dsnito, ever imagined Paul doing those standard songs ala Crosby or Sinatra? Interesting, isn't it?

I agree Ringo is underated. Yet, he's everyone's 2nd favorite Beatle.
