Belle Stars - No relation with Ringo

Where band name Belle Stars comes from - Belle StarrA rock band that consisted entirely of women and was born as ska formation The Bodysnatchers.

Guitarist Sarah-Jane Owen adopted the habit of dressing in cowboy clothes when performing, giving the band name credibility, because a Belle Star is a kind of cowgirl.

Women dressed in cowboy clothes owe their nickname to Myra Maybelle ('Belle') Shirley (1848-1889), a notorious horse thief from Carthage, Missouri. Because of her marriage with a Cherokee Indian named Sam Starr she could call herself Belle Starr.

Belle and Ringo Starr are not related.
