I bet he came up with the name at Casino Rama outside Toronto where he rehearsed for his last tour!

Ringo Album To Feature Guests & Harrison Tribute
Ringo Rama, the upcoming solo album from Ringo Starr, is due March 25 from Koch Records. The project features guest appearances from Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, Willie Nelson, Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit, Shawn Colvin, and others.
The album’s first single will be “Never Without You,” a tribute to Starr’s late Beatles mate George Harrison that features a guitar solo by Clapton.
In a statement, Starr said the song is “my way…to say how much George meant to me and how much he will be remembered…I really wanted (Clapton) on this song because George loved Eric, and Eric loved George. I wanted Eric to come and play that solo because I only wanted people on the track who George knew and loved.”
Written by Starr, Ringo Rama producer Mark Hudson, and Gary Nicholson, the song’s chorus tells Harrison that “your song will play on/Without you/And this world/Won’t forget/About you/Every part of you was in your song…’Here Comes The Sun’ is about you.”
Starr said he also tried to pay tribute to his other late bandmate, John Lennon, and good friend Harry Nilsson in the song, but that “it got too busy.”
The song will be released to radio on February 17.
Ringo Rama was recorded mostly in England, although some work was done at Hudson’s studio in Los Angeles. The first song, “Eye To Eye,” makes a sonic reference to “It Don’t Come Easy,” Starr’s first solo hit from 1971, while “Elizabeth Reigns” was inspired by Queen Elizabeth II’s Jubilee celebrations, which took place last June while Starr was recording the album.
Other songs on Ringo Rama include: “I Think Therefore I Rock & Roll” (with Gilmour), “Missouri Loves Company” (with Gilmour), “English Garden,” “Write One For Me” (with Nelson), “Memphis In Your Mind,” and “I Really Love Her,” a short bonus track included on the end of the album.
Starr will tour this summer with a new edition of his All-Starr Band that includes 2001 All-Starr drummer Sheila E., Men At Work frontman Colin Hay on guitar, ex-Babys/Bad English frontman and solo star John Waite on bass, and Squeeze/Mike + the Mechanics keyboardist-vocalist Paul Carrack. More members of the band and tour dates are expected to be announced soon.
