July 7 is Ringo Starr's birthday! Ringo celebrates birthday number 77 today. As he has said on every birthday since 2008, he only has one request:
"Peace and love everybody. As you know, my name is Ringo, and on the 7th of July, at noon, my birthday, I will be in L.A. But at noon, wherever you are, if you can go 'Peace and love, peace and love,' that would be great. Thank you."
Ringo will be in front of the Capitol Records tower in Hollywood, California today, joined by his brother-in-law Joe Walsh, singer-songwriter Van Dyke Parks, Eric Burdon, Nils Lofgren, comedians Howie Mandel, Richard Lewis and many other pals.
This is a birthday gift that takes less than a second to deliver.
BIG 100 is celebrating Ringo's birthday by featuring him on 11 o'clock LIVE, and the theme of today's BIG Workforce Block will be Ringo-palooza!
