On July 7, legendary Beatles drummer Ringo Starr turns 80-years-old and will be celebrating his birthday by hosting a virtual broadcast benefit called “Ringo’s Big Birthday Show.” Starr, a Beverly Hills resident, has enlisted former Beatles bandmate Paul McCartney, Ringo Star & His All Starr Band guitarist Joe Walsh, Gary Clark Jr., Sheryl Crow, Sheila E. and Ben Harper to host at-home performances and air never-before-seen concert footage. Proceeds from the birthday benefit will go to Black Lives Matter Global Network, the David Lynch Foundation, MusiCares and WaterAid.
In the past, Starr used to gather a crowd of hundreds of fans outside of Capitol Records in Hollywood to celebrate his birthday with a “Peace and Love” themed event with musical performances.
