Ringo Starr Turns 80 With An All-Starr Party

by Paul Cashmere on July 8, 2020

in News

Ringo Starr is the first Beatle to turn 80 years old and he celebrated by streaming in his famous friends for an all-Starr performance.

Ringo Starr’s Big Birthday Show featured some collaborations, a few mass gatherings and a few vintage clips.

On ‘Give Me Love’ Ringo and band were joined online by Rodney Crowell, Willie Nelson, Peter Frampton, Steve Earle, Michael McDonald, Jackson Browne, Elvis Costello, Keb’ Mo’, Jeff Bridges, T. Bone Burnett and Ray Wyle Hubbard.

Ringo joined Sheila E and Lenny Kravitz for ‘Come Together’, Ben Harper and Dave Grohl got together for a new song we think might be called ‘I’m Down and Out’ and Ringo’s brother-in-law Joe Walsh joined him at home and performed ‘Boys’.

Ringo’s wife Barbara, her sister (and Joe’s wife Maureen), David Lynch, Ron Howard, Nils Lofgren, Sir Bog Geldof (looking more like Sire Bob Gandalf) and Olivia Harrison and Mick Fleetwood popped up through the show to wish Ringo a happy 80th.

Fun Fact: Mick Fleetwood and George Harrison were brothers-in-law. Mick’s first wife was Jenny Boyd, George’s first wife Patty Boyd’s sister. Jenny Boyd was also the Jennifer who Donovan wrote ‘Jennifer Juniper’ about.
