Ringo Star, Meditation and Peace and Love
How did you first get the idea for your Peace & Love birthday celebration?
“I was being interviewed in New York when the All Starrs were on tour, and someone said, “What would you like for your birthday?” Out of the blue I said, “Everybody, everywhere, at noon on the 7th of July, say ‘Peace and love.'” So we started it soon after in Chicago at the Hard Rock there. They made these little cakes for everyone. There were like 100 people. The interesting thing about the little cakes was that they were on eBay that night for $300. “Yeah, we love you, Ringo, but let me sell the cake!”
