Ringo Starr To Feature In Grammy Museum Virtual Exhibit 

The former Beatles drummer and successful solo artist will be celebrated with a series of new and archival interviews, as well as a virtual version of the Peace & Love exhibit from 2013.

That previous exhibition highlighted Ringo’s life, from his childhood in Liverpool, through his pre-Beatles bands, his time as a member of the Fab Four and beyond.

 

The new virtual display will include images from Peace & Love, as well as never before seen photos, personal letters, documents and other rarities.

 

On March 4, the Grammy Museum will release an interview with the former Beatle recorded in 2010 for its ‘Live From the Vault’ series. Following this, the museum’s founding executive director Bob Santelli on March 18 will also release an interview he recorded with Ringo.

The now 80-year old drummer talks about his forthcoming EP ‘Zoom In’ to be released on March 19. He also discusses the new book 'Ringo Rocks: 30 Years Of The All Starrs 1989-2019'.

 

The virtual exhibition and interviews will be premiered on the Grammy Museum’s COLLECTION: live streaming service and will be presented in partnership with Iron Mountain Entertainment Services.

As well as working with the Foo Fighters Dave Grohl and Finneas, Ringo reunites with his former Beatles band-mate Paul McCartney on the ‘Zoom In’ EP. He also reflected on the handful of times in recent years he’s shred the stage with Paul.

 

“I love that, getting up with him,” he said. “The audience is like, ‘Oh, there’s two of them! Wow’. It lifts everything, in a joyous way. So, yeah, I had a great time.”
