Ringo Starr was asked prior to his "Peace and Love" birthday celebration what it means to him to be 75 years old.

 

 

He presided over another "Peace and Love" birthday countdown in front of the Capitol Records tower in L.A. on Tuesday and this one was made extra special because it was his 75th.

 

The crowd was larger than at previous celebrations. Ringo told the few hundred assembled fans, "The first one we did here there were about ten people and now look at you." Ringo was joined by wife Barbara Bach, brother-in-law Joe Walsh, comedian Richard Lewis, director David Lynch and a large contingent of musicians, including Edgar Winter, Matt Sorum, Jim Keltner, Gregg Bissonette and Glen Ballard.
