- The drummer - who already features in the US museum as one fourth of The Beatles - is set to be recognised for his work as a solo artist next year.

If he is inducted, Ringo will join ex-bandmates John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney and George Harrison who have all been individually honoured as well as collectively.

A source said: "Ringo's work as a solo artist has never been taken as seriously as the other ex-Beatles but he's actually enjoyed a lot of success in his own right, particularly in America. It's hard to imagine, but there was even a point in the 70s when his records were briefly outselling those of John, George and Paul."

An album of Ringo's greatest hits as a solo artist, entitled 'The Very Best of Ringo Starr', was released last week.

The 67-year-old musician continues to perform live with his All Starr Band and his other group, The Roundheads.

The source added: "Having your own place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is generally considered to be one of the biggest honours a musician can have. Ringo is now among the favourites to be inducted next year."

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a museum in Cleveland, Ohio, which celebrates the achievements of artists who have had a major influence on the music industry.

A handful of artists have been inducted into the Hall in a special New York ceremony every year since it was created in 1986.

Inductees include Elvis Presley, Prince, U2, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan.
