Happy Birthday Ringo! The Best Drummer in Rock Turns 75 with a Hollywood Event


Ringo Starr, the best drummer in the history of rock and roll, celebrated his 75th birthday in style today in Hollywood. That’s our Leah Sydney interviewing him at a special midday event celebrating Peace and Love. Ringo never stops– he has a new album out called Postcards from Paradise. He’s on tour always with his All Starr Band. Oh yes, he was in the Beatles. Best drummer? Listen to his fills on those classics. Gorgeous.

Keep refreshing for Leah’s interview later this afternoon…

and listen to Ringo!

Thanks to Bill Palmer for the photo from today’s event.
