Grammy Museum salutes Ringo Starr

  • Print

LOS ANGELES -- The Grammy Museum will put up its third salute to a Beatle with the June 12 opening of Ringo: Peace and Love, billed as "the first major exhibition to explore the life of Ringo Starr."

Museum officials have gathered previously unpublished photos, correspondence and film footage as well as iconic items from Starr's career. Some of the notable artifacts include the drum kits he played when the Beatles performed historic concerts on The Ed Sullivan Show and at Shea Stadium in New York, his military-inspired costume from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and the red jacket he wore on the group's 1969 farewell concert on the rooftop of Abbey Road studio in London.

The exhibit also will have an interactive feature allowing visitors to take a virtual music lesson with the world's most famous rock drummer.

In addition to his music with the Beatles and as a solo artist in the 40 years after the group disbanded, the show will touch on his activities as an actor, philanthropist and peace activist.

The museum has also previously hosted shows dedicated to the lives and careers of John Lennon and George Harrison.
