Speaking at an event at the Grammy Museum in California recently, former drummer for the Beatles, Ringo Starr announced that he had found God. Starr said his road to enlightenment had been long and winding. He admitted that he had lost his way when he was younger, experimenting with drugs, and later suffering from alcohol and cocaine problems during the 1970s. Starr said since then he had quit smoking and no longer used alcohol either. Starr told the audience, “I feel the older I get, the more I’m learning to handle life. Being on the quest for a long time, it’s all about finding yourself. “He said,”For me, God is in my life. I don’t hide from that. I think the search has been on since the 1960s.” He added, “I stepped off the path there for many years and found my way back onto it, thank God.”
