Ringo Starr stopped into the Grammy Museum in L.A. on Tuesday to give the media a preview of the new exhibition “Ringo: Peace & Love,” which opens Wednesday. The first major exploration of the life and career of the man born Richard Starkey, it’s also the museum’s first exhibit dedicated to a drummer, one described Tuesday by museum executive director Robert Santelli as “the most important drummer in the history of rock 'n' roll.”
Starr said that just last year he and his wife, actress Barbara Bach, had decided to start archiving various bits of memorabilia that have been stashed away across more than half a century. That decision dovetailed perfectly, he said, with Santelli’s call asking if he’d be interested in participating in an exhibit at the facility, which previously assembled examinations of the careers of John Lennon and George Harrison.
