Ringo Starr admitted in a recent interview that he suffers from stage fright, even after performing for over 50 years.
The former Beatles drummer, 71, told Billboard magazine: "I have actually puked before I went on as all my nerves come to the fore. It is part of what I am and it happens before every show."
"There have been times that I just wanted to go back to bed as I just get so nervous," he continues. "Every night I just hope that tonight is the night when I am going to feel like Frank Sinatra."
Starr says the stage fright is why he always runs on to the stage. "That's why I always run on to it. I would love to cooly stroll on stage but I cannot."
Ringo is currently promoting his 17th solo LP called Ringo 2012, and will take the album on tour this summer with his All-Starr Band, kicking off in Ontario, Canada, on June 14.
