Former Beatles Drummer Starr Gets Exhibit At Grammy Museum
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — For the first time in it’s existence, the Grammy Museum is dedicating an exhibit to a drummer.
Former Beatles drummer, Ringo Starr, is displaying both his professional and personal life at the Grammy Museum’s new exhibit, ‘Ringo: Peace and Love’.
Starr, 72, has donated some personal belongings, including the Beatles drum-set he used on the Ed Sullivan Show, costumes from Sgt. Pepper’s album cover, and personal letters.
Music fans have the opportunity to look at artifacts of Starr’s from before he was famous, in addition to pieces he used with the Beatles.
Other features include a karaoke booth where fans can sing along to the song, “Yellow Submarine”.
After the Beatles broke up, Starr went on to have a successful solo career, which is documented on the exhibit’s museum wall.
“The Grammy [Museum] was an exact place for me,” Starr said. “I thought I can do it in honesty here because it is the Grammy Museum, and its music. And so, that’s what I do, I play music.”
On the side, Starr is working on turning the song, “Octopus’ Garden” into a childrens book.
