The Hollywood Vampires was a celebrity drinking club formed by Alice Cooper in the 1970s. The hazing to get into the club was to outdrink all the members. Cooper listed himself, Keith Moon, Ringo Starr, Micky Dolenz and Harry Nilsson as the club's principal members. Ringo would later attribute the downward spiral of his career to this club, saying: "We weren't musicians dabbling in drugs and alcohol; now we were junkies dabbling in music."
Zak Starkey was born on 13 September 1965, at Queen Charlotte's Maternity Hospital, the same day as the single "Yesterday" was released. Ringo would later say that his son was "a little smasher" but insisted that he wouldn't let Zak be a drummer. Apparently, Zak didn't listen, as he went on to play with several English rock bands, including The Who and Oasis.
