“With a Little Help from My Friends” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles from their 1967 album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. It was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and intended as the album's featured vocal for drummer Ringo Starr. The group recorded the song towards the end of the sessions for Sgt. Pepper, with Starr singing as the character “Billy Shears”. A subsequent recording of the track by Joe Cocker became a hit single in 1968 and an anthem for the Woodstock era. In 1978, the Beatles' recording, paired with “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band”, was reissued as a single, and peaked at number 63 in Britain and number 71 in the United States. Starr has regularly performed the song in concert as a solo artist. “With a Little Help from My Friends” was ranked number 311 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

To date, Starr has closed every concert performed by each version of his All-Starr Band with this song. After he is done singing, Starr tells the audience “Peace and love...peace and love is the only way...and good night”, then walks off the stage. Since 2008, the band segued right into “Give Peace a Chance”, during which Starr comes back onstage, then walks off again. Starr performed the song with George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, George Michael, Phil Collins, Elton John, and many others at the 1987 Prince's Trust Concert at Wembley Arena, London. McCartney and Starr performed this song for the first time together at the David Lynch Foundation Benefit Concert in the Radio City Music Hall, New York on 4 April 2009. McCartney and Starr also performed the song together on “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles”, a commemorative show on 27 January 2014, that marked 50 years since the band's first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show., then again in 2015 at Ringo Starr's induction in the Rock'n Roll Hall of Fame.
