Ringo Starr Celebrates 81st Birthday Teasing New Music Collab with Peter Frampton
Happy Birthday Ringo Starr-81 years old today!
As is tradition, Ringo is asking fans to celebrate with participating in the “Peace and Love” festivities either with friends or online with the hashtag #peaceandlove on social media.
“[Y]ou can post it, you can say it, you can even think it, but it’d be cool if you go ‘peace and love’ at noon on my birthday,” Starr said in a YouTube video. “So let’s spread peace and love around the world on my birthday. Come on, everybody!”
In other breaking news, Ringo was recently in the studio with Peter Frampton working on new music, presumably for a new EP following up his recent release, Zoom In, which came out in May.
In a Twitter message, Frampton posted a photo of him with Starr and songwriter/producer Linda Perry at Ringo’s home studio, along with a note that reads, “So great to be able to fly and see friends again. Lovely afternoon listening to Ringo’s great upcoming EP.”
Ringo will return to the road in 2022 with a date at the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park on May 31 and at the Hackensack Meridian Health Theatre at Count Basie Center for The Arts June 10.
