See also

With a portion of Vine Street blocked off, a couple hundred fans gathered in front of the iconic Capitol Records building in Hollywood to celebrate the 74th birthday of former Beatles member Ringo Starr. An event that featured a throng of media all clamoring for that perfect reaction shot of Ringo famously waving his two handed “peace” sign. And it must also be said that Mr Starr looks like a man 20 years younger. Jumping off the stage to toss out wrist bands to the press and fans alike Ringo ran up and down the street continually filling his hands with the freebies and tossing them out to the delight of everyone in attendance. Eagles member and Ringo brother-in-law Joe Walsh also serenaded Ringo with a unique rendition of "Happy Birthday".

He also had a little help from his friends musicians Todd Rundgren, Joe Walsh and film director David Lynch. Ringo also used the occasion to announce a partnership with designer John Varvatos. Add the hashtag “#PEACEROCKS” to a picture of yourself waving the "peace" sign and John Varvatos will donate a dollar to The David Lynch Foundation's Ringo Starr Peace & Love Fund." that will bring transcendental meditation to those that need it.
