Jack, or Ringo as he was known to his friends, passed away on the 18th October 2015 at the age of 67 years. He leaves behind his loving brother Douglas and family. Ringo’s funeral took place on 18th November  2015 at Harwood Park Crematorium, Stevenage.

In his mid teens, as a Beatles fan, Jack became aware of his remarkable resemblence to Ringo Starr.  In around 1964 The Beatles Fan Club became aware of Jack, and various photo shoots ensued for magazines and the press.
 
Jack applied for a part in the West End show, Beatlemania, and because of his ability to play drums well and look like Ringo, he was hired immediately. The show ran for some time, and when it closed, the group took to the road as The Bootleg Beatles. They received a huge response from the media, and within months, were touring various countries.

Jack never really enjoyed touring, and missed his family and friends, so he left the band and signed up with lookalike agencies, again travelling the world, but not having to stay away for weeks on end.

He made a film in America with other lookalikes, including "Nasty Nick", John Altman from Eastenders fame, who played a very good George Harrison.

His favourite job, was being hired for a video at Pinewood Studios and being picked up in a limo and taken there from the Jackmans Estate in Letchworth.


His job was to stand in for Ringo for The Travelling Wilburys as Ringo had gone abroad, and they needed more footage for " Won't Back Down". There is actually more of Jack in the video than Ringo himself. All of the parts with "Ringo" on the Grey Pearl Ludwig drum kit are actually Jack.

He was chuffed to bits to meet George Harrison, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynn, and decided to take a 'one off' fee of £800 for the day, rather than royalties, because he thought the song was like a "Bloody nursery rhyme"; However it went on to become their most famous song!!
