He is 71 and has been performing on stage for five decades now,but Beatles legend Ringo Starr says he still gets the nerves before each concert.

Being a part of one of the most successful groups of all time hasn’t stopped Starr getting stage fright every time he plays in public,but he said he gets by with a little help from his friends,reported ‘Daily Mail’.

“I feel like running away three seconds before I’m due to hit the stage. That’s why I always run on to it. I would love to coolly stroll on stage but I cannot,” said Starr.

“I love performing but I just have this nervousness every time,” he added.

The former Beatles drummer said that he does not mind that he is still thought of primarily as a member of the band.

“I AM a Beatle and will always stay one. So people always refer to me as a Beatle and that’s not something that bothers me. Many bands are still judged by the standards of The Beatles.

The drummer is currently touring Europe under his everlasting motto ‘Peace & Love’.

Asked whether he ever felt strained due to his packed schedule,he said,“No,I love to work. Other bands may play two concerts a week when on tour. I prefer doing five.”
