First major exhibition to explore the life of Ringo Starr opens at the Grammy Museum
Ringo: Peace & Love is both the first major exhibit ever dedicated to a drummer and the first to explore his extraordinary career.
LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Grammy Museum, in cooperation with Ringo Starr, debuted a major new exhibition, Ringo: Peace & Love on June 12, 2013. This one-of-a-kind, limited-run exhibition offers visitors an unprecedented in-depth look at all aspects of Starr’s musical and creative life – as a musician, artist, actor, and as the man the world knows and loves simply as 'Ringo.' It also aims to propel Starr’s universal message of peace and love.

Ringo: Peace & Love is both the first major exhibit ever dedicated to a drummer and the first to explore the extraordinary career of the 7-time GRAMMY Award® winner. The scope of exhibit spans Ringo’s early life growing up in Liverpool, from Raving Texans turned Rory Storm, from The Beatles, to becoming a solo artist and then to the All Starrs with whom he is on tour now – this unique collection brings together diverse artifacts, rare and never before seen photographs, documents, personal letters and footage.

Ringo: Peace & Love is located on the second floor and includes:

• The drum kit he played on The Ed Sullivan Show

• The drum kit he used while recording Let It Be and Abbey Road

• Ringo’s Sgt. Pepper Suit

• The Red Jacket worn during the filming of The Beatles rooftop concert

• Personal letters, photographs and documents from the Starkey family and Ringo’s days with the Beatles

It also is an interactive exhibit, where visitors can take a drum lesson with Ringo.

"I’m honored that Ringo has chosen to work with us to create Ringo: Peace & Love,” said Bob Santelli, Executive Director of The GRAMMY Museum. "We are particularly excited to celebrate Starr’s extraordinary musical legacy with the legions of fans who admire him, as well as to introduce him to a new generation of music lovers.”

Ringo: Peace & Love will be on display in The GRAMMY Museum’s Special Exhibits Gallery through March 2014.
