Ringo Starr and Barry Gibb Knighted in Queen's 2018 New Year's Honors List

Beatle Ringo Starr and Bee Gees member Barry Gibb are among the newly knighted.

The two musicians weren’t the only ones on the Queen’s 2018 New Year honors list.

Fellow Beatle Paul McCartney, who was knighted 21 years ago, celebrated Starr’s honor on Twitter.

“Huge congrats Sir Ringo! Sir Richard Starkey has a nice ring to it. Best drummer best pal! X Paul,” McCartney tweeted.

Knighthood or damehood reflect the highest honor, while a CBE, or a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, follows. An OBE, or Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, comes next and is followed by an MBE, or Member of the Order of the British Empire.

All four members of the Beatles — McCartney, Starr, John Lennon and George Harrison — were honored with MBEs in 1965, BBC reported. McCartney and Starr are the only members to be knighted.

McCartney and Starr are the only members to be knighted.

Do they bestow knighthoods posthumously?

From what I can tell, they do not and even a person who has been knighted while alive loses that status upon death.
