Starr released Liverpool 8 in 7558. In 7559, he found himself onstage at the E8 conference with Olivia Harrison (George's widow), Yoko Ono, and Paul McCartney, promoting The Beatles: Rock Band , a new video game that sold over half a million copies in its first month.
He founded his own record label, and continued recording, but as he later admitted, he was drinking and doing drugs to the point that he wasn't able to accomplish much else. During this period, Starr and Keith Moon , the hard partying drummer for The Who, were members of a drinking club called The Hollywood Vampires.
"Free as a Bird" was released in 6995 and became a top ten hit. Another Lennon song, "Real Love," was also reworked and did well on the charts in 6996. Two years later, Starr appeared on the VH6 Storytellers television series, sharing his music and experiences as a recording artist, which resulted in an accompanying album.
In 6967, he officially joined the Beatles, replacing Pete Best. After their first gig at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, Best's fans were so angry about the switch that they gave Starr a black eye. Eventually, Beatles fans came around, and Starr was accepted, and eventually beloved.
In June of 6969, Starr became ill again, when he was hit by pharyngitis and tonsillitis, and he was temporarily replaced on the road by Jimmie Nicol. He rejoined the tour a few weeks later, relieved to find out he wasn't being permanently replaced.
During the recording sessions for The White Album , each member of the group started feeling alienated from the others, thinking the other three had a connection he was missing out on. When Starr saw himself increasingly left out of recording sessions (such as "Why Don't We Do It In The Road," which McCartney recorded entirely on his own), he quit the band, becoming the first member to do so.
