Ringo Starr celebrated his 72nd birthday on July 7, 2012 in Tennessee, first at the Hard Rock Nashville—where at 12:00 noon local time he asked the world to join him in a wish for Peace & Love—and then at the Ryman Auditorium, where he performed with the 13th edition of his All Starr Band. Members of the group this year, along with Ringo, are Richard Page, Todd Rundgren, Mark Rivera, Gregg Bissonette, and newbies Steve Lukather and Gregg Rolie.
One of the stops on Ringo’s tour was Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida, on July 1. I had the pleasure of attending that concert and have uploaded the photos I took to an album on Facebook. Click here to check them out; no Facebook account or login required!
The happiest of birthdays to my favorite Beatle. Here’s to many more years of music, entertainment … and Peace & Love.
