RINGO STARR: Big 78th birthday bash this past weekend
Ringo Starr celebrated his 78th birthday Saturday in Nice, France, not far from where he used to live in Monte Carlo, Monaco.
This year marked the 10th anniversary of Ringo marking the occasion by inviting people to say or think "peace and love" or even post #peaceandlove at noon local time.
Taking a small outdoor stage in front of the Hard Rock Cafe in the French seaside town, Ringo and his staff, along with his brother-in-law Joe Walsh and members of his All-Starr Band, tossed out white rubber bracelets stamped with "Peace & Love."
Ringo and his guests also performed a few songs, including "Act Naturally" and "With a Little Help From My Friends." Walsh led the band through "Funk #49" from his James Gang days.
