Ringo recently completed a Spring tour with Ringo and his All Starr Band, and the band will resume with a second set of dates in September. 

In April he released his 4th EPCrooked Boy which includes 4 songs all written and produced by Linda Perry – “February Sky,” “Gonna Need Someone,” “Adeline,” and “Crooked Boy.”

Ringo recently published his 8th book, Beats & Threads, through Juliens Auctions. Ringo’s trend setting threads were as signature as the beat of his drums and this book features over 200 images including never before seen photos and extensive details on his drums. Ringo–in collaboration with noted historian, author, speaker, drummer, and vintage drum collector, Gary Astridge–offers for the first-time the most comprehensive look at his legendary Beatles-era drum kits containing decades of research-based information with curated and detailed photographs of these pieces of music history. It is available now through Juliensauctions.com

Julien’s Auctions
For the moments that matter.
You know that moment when the lights dim, right before your favorite band starts playing? Or that feeling right before the credits roll on a movie that changed your whole world in an instant? The air is charged with anticipation and words are never going to do it justice because you just really had to be there.

At Julien’s, we exist to bring those moments back into your life through iconic artifacts and one-of-a-kind collections. Whether collaborating directly with artists, partnering with legendary estates, or working closely with discerning collectors, our auctions make culture pop with the promise of discovery and reconnection. From Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, and Ringo Starr to Lady Gaga, Banksy, and Kurt Cobain-from LA to the world, we are where originals find their kind.

SIRIUSXM The Beatles Channel
The Beatles Channel can be found on SiriusXM channel 18 and on the SXM App. The channel features the band’s hits and album tracks, live recordings and rarities, solo works from John, Paul, George and Ringo, records that influenced the band, as well as the music they inspired. SiriusXM have been proud sponsors of Ringo’s Peace & Love Birthday events since 2017.

THE SESSIONS – Enrich, Educate, Empower
The Sessions was founded by photographer, author and philanthropist, Jules Follett, and provides the bridge between dreams and reality by Enriching artist lives through Education, focusing on Empowering and sharpening their business skills in the pursuit of excellence. This is done through in person and online panel events, as well as interviews with music industry Artists sharing their story, valuable information and advice from all areas of the business, accessible to all through their YouTube channel in their Artist Series interviews.

Since 2008 Ringo has invited everyone everywhere to think, say or post #peaceandlove at Noon their local time on July 7thto fulfill his birthday wish of a wave of Peace and Love encircling the planet. Usually Ringo meets with fans in whatever city he is in, a tradition that began July 7, 2008 when he convened with fans and friends on the streets in front of the Hard Rock Café in Chicago, passing out cupcakes and joining the crowd for “Peace and Love” exactly at Noon. In the ensuing years it has grown enormously and in 2019 there were over 30 Peace & Love events in countries all around the world. 

2020’s pandemic prevented an in-person event, and Ringo instead moved the celebration to be virtual, hosting “Ringo’s Big Birthday Show,” which featured unseen concert and unique performances by Starr, Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Ben Harper and Dave Grohl, Sheryl Crow, Gary Clark Jr and Sheila E. The show was broadcast globally via AXS, YouTube and Ceek and it benefitted Black Lives Matter Global Network, The David Lynch Foundation, Musicares and WaterAid. Meanwhile the #peaceandlove posts came from near and far, with the Mars Rover and The International Space Station being the first to wish Ringo a Happy Birthday “From 260 miles above our home planet, NASA Astronauts wish Ringo Starr a happy 80th birthday! Since our orbiting laboratory operates in Greenwich Mean Time, or GMT, it’s officially July 7 – a perfect date to send #PeaceAndLove to everyone across the universe!”

2021 found Ringo celebrating with a few friends and family with a photo call at his Peace sculpture, with the world celebrating with their wave of peace and love celebrations globally. 

In 2022, Ringo welcomed friends, family and the media to his Peace sculpture and over 30 Peace and Love regional events happened around the globe. In addition Ringo’s star song – the sound the stars made when he was born along with a recording of him saying “Peace & Love” – was beamed out into space and to the International Space Station (ISS) where it orbited around the Earth, passing over many countries and much of the Earth’s population beaming back down messages of peace and love while also traveling out to distant stars. In 2023, Ringo returned to the Peace sculpture to greet friends, family and the media while over 30 Peace and Love events kept the wave of peace and love traveling around the world. While NASA help spread the message to the universe and by beaming at Noon PST a pre-recorded message from Ringo from Barstow California based station in the Deep Space Network.
