Grammy Museum opens Ringo: Peace & Love exhibition

Grammy Museum opens Ringo: Peace & Love an exhibition on view from June 12, 2013. This one-of-a-kind, limited-run exhibit will offer 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 will also aim 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 will be located on the second floor and will include:

The drum kit Ringo played on Let It Be, Abbey Road, and The White Album
The drum kit he played on The Ed Sullivan Show
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 will also be an interactive exhibit, where visitors can take a drum lesson with Ringo.
