“My dream has always been, and still is, to play great music with great musicians - and I’ve been blessed to have so many incredible ones in my All Starr Bands,” Ringo reflected. “We can’t wait to get out there and share the joy with you – every show is always such a wonderful Peace & Love fest between us and our audiences.”
This July 7, 2019 Ringo will return to Capitol Records Tower in Los Angeles for his annual Peace & Love Birthday Celebration, where he joins gathered fans and invites anyone anywhere around the world to think, say or post #peaceandlove at Noon their local time. This creates a wave of Peace & Love across the planet, starting in New Zealand and ending in Hawaii. Ringo began this tradition in 2008 at the Hard Rock Café - Chicago and last year he celebrated the 10th Anniversary at the Hard Rock Café - Nice. In the ensuing years it has grown enormously and in 2018 there were Peace & Love events in over 60 countries. Details for the 2019 event will be announced in the coming months.
September 2019 will also see the wide release of Another Day In The Life. The third in Ringo's series of books with Genesis Publications, following the sell-out success of Postcards From The Boys (2003) and Photograph (2013), will present a previously unpublished collection of his photographs, captioned with his own thoughts and anecdotes.
Reflecting his love of music, travel and nature, Another Day In The Life shows us the world as seen through Ringo's eyes. From Los Angeles to Tokyo and everywhere in between, many of Ringo's observational images celebrate the quirkiness of life. Other photographs are taken behind the scenes during historic events, such as Ringo's acceptance of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and his return to New York's Plaza Hotel, 50 years after The Beatles first visited the USA. Joined by Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh and a host of All-Starr friends, in Another Day In The Life Ringo Starr shares personal moments from a legendary life in music, and offers a unique and inspiring look at the world around us.
Born Richard Starkey on July 7, 1940, Sir Ringo Starr knew “at a very young age” what he wanted to do. Since beginning his career with The Beatles in the 1960s, Ringo has been one of the world's brightest musical luminaries. He has enjoyed a successful, dynamic solo career as a drummer, singer, songwriter, collaborator and producer. He is a longtime advocate for humanitarian and environmental causes.
Throughout his career he has received nine GRAMMY® Awards, and has twice been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame -- first as a Beatle and then as solo artist. Between 1970 and 2017, Ringo has released 19 solo studio records. He has acted in over 15 films, received an Academy Award®, and has been nominated as an actor for an Emmy®. Ringo has published four books, his most recent, 'Another Day in the Life' was released in November 2018. In March 2018 Ringo was knighted by Prince William, having been selected for the honor by Queen Elizabeth II for knighthood for his music and charity work.
For all his many creative successes, Ringo is and always will be first and foremost a musician, a drummer. Peace and love are his life’s rhythm and melody, and he propels this universal message in everything he does: his evocative artwork, his enthused live performances, his legendary songs, all imbued with the joy, reflection, and wisdom of the music icon the world knows and loves simply as “Ringo.”
