Today Ringo Starr, currently in the midst of a multi-city concert tour of the USA with his All Starr Band, is celebrating his 74th birthday. The celebration continues July 13 with the premiere showing on AXS TV of a tribute concert honoring the legendary former Beatle.
A recent article in USA Today reported:
'The special showcases performances by Joe Walsh, Ben Harper, Ben Folds, Brendan Benson, Bettye LaVette and others, plus a band featuring Don Was, Benmont Tench, Peter Frampton, Steve Lukather and Kenny Aronoff.
'The concert, taped in January in Los Angeles, launched the Ringo Starr Peace & Love Fund, a division of the David Lynch Foundation, which provides Transcendental Meditation instruction to tens of thousands of at-risk students in underserved schools, women who are survivors of domestic violence, and veterans with post-traumatic stress.'
