The Beatles’ drummer only wants two things for his 75th birthday today: peace and love.
Today at noon he wants everyone to raise that peace sign, which has become the star’s signature move.
“This is just a gentle peace and love reminder that on July the 7th, my birthday, all I ask for is at noon, wherever you are in the world, you just go ‘Peace and Love, Peace and Love’ and that will make my heart sing,” Starr says in a video posted to his Facebook page.
Starr hosts his annual “Peace and Love” event in front of the iconic Capital Records building in Los Angeles just before noon Pacific Time today. Rock and roll performers Joe Walsh and Edgar Winter, along with Starr’s wife of 34 years, actress Barbara Bach, are among those expected.
Starr, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this spring as a solo act, has been hosting the annual event since his 65th birthday and has set up a charity, the Peace and Love Fund at the David Lynch Foundation that works to heal trauma and stress through meditation.
The 75-year-old released a new album, Postcards from Paradise, in March and plans to spread “peace and love” on a 22-city fall tour with his All-Starr Band in the U.S. and Canada starting in October.
