Happy Birthday Ringo

He wanted a message of hope, peace and love for his birthday. Great things to hold onto if you can find them.

Ringo Starr turned 70 today. I have been fortunate to see him twice with his various All-Star bands. Both along time ago and kind of makes me old. The first time was at Wolf Trap. The All-Stars there included Jack Bruce, then I saw him again in Portsmouth, Virginia with Sheila E and some 80's musician. Real fun shows.

He has to be a proud dad, being able to see his son follow him into the family business of great music and drumming. Zak Starkey the drummer for the Who since 1996. Filling legendary shoes of Keith Moon. He also has to feel proud being part of the Beatles and being able to have a fun solo career.

Cheers and happy birthday!
