Celebrating Ringo Starr on his birthday

Tuesday, July 09, 2019

The public celebration that has turned into an annual tradition marking Ringo Starr’s birthday stands for the former Beatle as a testament to the truth behind the words another rock star once sang, “From small things, mama, big things one day come.”

The epicenter of the 11th edition of Starr’s “Peace and Love” gathering on Sunday, the drummer’s 79th birthday, was Hollywood, where Starr held court on the sidewalk outside the Capitol Records Tower in front of several hundred fans who filled a section of Vine Street that was closed for the event.

He was surrounded onstage by a raft of family members and rock-star friends including his wife, actress Barbara Bach, filmmakers David Lynch and Peter Jackson, superstar producer-musicians T Bone Burnett and Don Was, keyboardists Edgar Winter, Gary Wright and Heartbreakers member Benmont Tench, guitarist Nils Lofgren, percussionist Sheila E., comedian Richard Lewis, actor Ed Begley Jr., ace studio drummer Jim Keltner, musician, producer, record executive and radio show host Peter Asher, “Breakfast With the Beatles” radio show host Chris Carter and other current and former members of Starr’s All-Starr Band.
