Default Ringo Starr - The Grammy Museum Exhibit

Anyone been to the Ringo Starr Grammy Exhibit? I had the opportunity to go, and I took a few pictures as well. I apologize for the quality. Photographs weren't allowed, and I took the pictures on my iPhone. Nonetheless I do hope you enjoy the photos. It was a entertaining walk through Ringo's history. I recommend it for not only fans of Ringo, but fans of the Beatles as well.



How you start off the experience is very quaint. A television is set up with a couch, and you can watch The Beatles perform on the Ed Sullivan program. I thought that was pretty neat, and a great touch.



This is the start of the exhibit. Off to the right is the Clive Davis theater. They were running a 17 minute film on Ringo's career on a continuous loop.







Three of Ringo's drum kits were on display.





Personal letters and photographs.











Ringo clothing from the early 60s to present day.



Ringo through the years!

There were more pictures that I took, but they didn't come out too great. There was a interactive drum lessons with Ringo set up. Also, there was a booth where you could record a bit of Octopuses Garden. A very fun experience. Check it out if possible.

Peace and love.

I went too, but I was afraid to take pics. Thank you for doing so-it brought back happy memories. I loved it! Richy is the best.
I think the drum kits were my favourite. I cried when I saw the old black pearl with the bits of masking tape and string on the lugs.
The clothes were so interesting. Amazing quality as they were tailor made, of course.

Thanks for the great pictures. Trying to place your photos with the pictures seen in the past, while worn, is great.

I'm taking my 12 year old cousin :) I'm glad the exhibit has been extended until April 27th which happens to be my birthday!

I was nervous as well. It's why some of the pictures I did take out came blurry. It was a wonderful exhibit. Especially the personal items like the letters and photographs.

Thank, no problem! I wanted to share them for the people who don't have the opportunity to see this wonderful exhibit.

I think your cousin will enjoy. Be sure to check out the little film in the Clive Davis theater as well. I think your cousin and you will also get a kick out of the old fashioned television playing the Beatles performance on Ed Sullivan.

I've put this off over and over, now I gotta get down there before it closes. 10 days left. Really enjoyed the Harrison exhibit a few years ago, I'm sure this one will be just as nice.

It's now or never! You should go and see it before it closes. I think you'll enjoy it. Even if Ringo isn't your favorite Beatle, it's still an interesting exhibit and seeing those drum kits up close is fantastic.
