Thumbs up Ringo's Birthday Wish List: "Peace & Love"

I was just looking on beatles.com and found this:

Ringo's Birthday Wish List: "Peace & Love"

http://www.thebeatles.com/core/news/

25th June 2008

Ringo was recently asked by Access Hollywood what he hoped to receive for his upcoming birthday (July 7th). Ringo's answer was unconventional, he said, "just more Peace & Love." Then he expanded his wish further, "it would be really cool if everyone, everywhere, wherever they are, at noon on July 7 make the peace sign and say "Peace & Love."

It seems he doesn't miss any opportunity for a peace sign and declaring "peace and love" :-P

Maybe another birthday wish would be for him to not have abuse hurled at him when he next visits Liverpool! :o)

Ah bless him. Of course I'll get him peace and love. I'll also have cake and drinks, of course.. Hey, for you, Rich, I'll make it a heart-shaped cake and... peace drinks?

His official myspace site posted this bulletin going into greater detail about it:

JULY 7TH 2008: "PEACE AND LOVE" WITH RINGO STARR

Asked what he'd like for his birthday next Monday, July 7, Ringo Starr answers, "Just more Peace & Love."

Ringo is planning a global Peace & Love movement, and he's asking for a little help from his friends!

On Monday, July 7, Ringo would like everyone - here, there and everywhere - at Noon local time wherever they are in the world, to join him in making the peace sign and saying, singing, shouting, whispering, signing, writing or quietly thinking one simply beautiful and universal message: "Peace & Love."

"Wherever you are," says Ringo Starr, "Office, home, bus, tube, sitting, standing, walking, alone or with others, doesn't matter -- at Noon on July 7 make the peace sign and think, say, shout, sing 'Peace & Love'."

Ringo will be in Chicago on July 7, where he'll be joined by others at Noon CT at the Buckingham Fountain for a group expression of Peace & Love. CNN will cover the Chicago gathering and other Peace & Love gatherings that day, and Ringo will be interviewed by Larry King for that evening's broadcast of "Larry King Live" on CNN.


Other planned gathering spots include Abbey Road Studios in London, Imagine Peace Tower in Reykjavik, Capitol Records in Hollywood, and Strawberry Fields in NYC's Central Park.


Please join Ringo Starr's worldwide Peace & Love movement next Monday, July 7 at Noon wherever you are!

Thumbs up

Here's the video on YouTube. I imagine that some members will record themselves flashing the peace sign and post it as a response on YouTube. Be sure to watch Larry King Live on Monday (even though King is a lousy interviewer ). He will ask Ringo about his birthday wish during the chat. You can e-mail a question or send an "i-Ask" video through the show's site: http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/larry.king.live/

Heheh, I hadn't noticed that. It must not be his official channel.

I wish you did too. Because? It was AWESOME!!!!

He was doing a Peace and Love event/press conference thingie at the Hard Rock Hotel and I decided to go over and see what was cooking. There was a HUGE crowd, but, by virtue of years of experience at such things, I knew to go to the side and I got right up front. He came walking out and did an few little interviews with me standing seriously, like 5 feet from him. It's quite likely I'll show up on the news grinning like in idiot in the background of some photo...hahahahahaha. :) He looked great, very smily. Barbara was there too, she looks gorgeous, as you'd expect. At the end, when he went back inside, they passed out little cupcakes with a sign in them that says Happy Birthday Ringo Starr.

It was an amazing experience and I'm soooooooo thrilled!!!!! :) :) :) :) :)

Only bad thing is that over the weekend, the rumors were that it was going to be at the Hard Rock CAFE instead of the hotel...the cafe is a lot further away from my office and I knew I couldn't really go there, so I wasn't planning to go when I left for work this morning, so....I didn't bring my camera! WAHHHHH!!! But oh well, the memories are more important than the photos.

It'll take a lot more than Ringo wishing it, for peace and love!
