Ringo Starr Celebrating His 76th Birthday Today by Hosting “Peace & Love” Salute in L.A.


Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesRingo Starr turns 76 today, July 7, and to celebrate his birthday, the former Beatles drummer will host his annual gathering in front of the Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, where he will lead family members, friends and fans in his trademark “Peace & Love” salute at noon PT.

The event will begin at 11 a.m. PT with red-carpet arrivals, followed at 11:20 a.m. by a special performance of Starr’s music by Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart and singer Jon Stevens, and the bands Alberta Cross and Vandaveer. At noon, Ringo will ask everyone to flash the peace symbol and declare “Peace & Love,” with hope that the positive message will travel around the world.

If you can’t make it to Los Angeles for the celebration, the bash will be streamed live at Ringo’s official Facebook page.

Starr also has asked fans, wherever they are in the world, to participate by giving their own “Peace & Love” salute — or just think about the message to themselves — at noon local time. You also can take part by posting themed messages, photos and videos on social media sites using the hashtag #PeaceandLove.

In other news, Ringo and his All Starr Band wrapped up their latest U.S. tour this past Saturday, but the rock legend revealed in a Facebook post that the group will be returning to the road in October. No dates have been announced yet.
