In the first of two events being held that day, veteran music journalist Melinda Newman will host a discussion at 10:30 a.m. at the ArcLight Theatre with veteran music photographer Henry Diltz, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters and drummer Steve Gorman of the Black Crowes. Ringo, who will also be rehearsing with the All-Starr Band Wednesday ahead of their upcoming Latin American tour, will make an appearance at the end of the event. A few tickets for the public still remain.
Ringo and All-Starr Band members Steve Lukather, Gregg Rolie, Todd Rundgren, Richard Page, Mark Rivera and Gregg Bissonette will also meet the press in the afternoon for a photo op and a short performance. The band begins a tour Oct. 29 with dates in Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Peru and Mexico, ending with two shows in Las Vegas Nov. 22 and 23.
In June 2013, the Grammy Museum opened "Ringo: Peace & Love," an exhibit which has had over 90,000 visitors since its opening, according to his press office. The first major exhibit to focus on a drummer and the first on Ringo, it will remain open through March, 2014.
That same month, Genesis Publications also released an e-book, also called “Photograph,” with never-before-seen images from his personal archives taken by and of Ringo. The e-book, for iPads, is available through the Apple bookstore.
