Yesterday marked Sir Ringo Starr’s 81st birthday and fans have been celebrating around the world. As is his tradition, The Beatles drummer asked everyone to say “Peace and Love!” at noon on July 7. Sir Ringo posted the moment he did this himself with his wife Barbara Bach in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.
Sir Ringo Starr wrote on Instagram: “I want to thank all the people who had the peace and love moments at noon.
“And I’m just getting ready here in LA to do my peace and Love-moment here so I send you all peace of love and thanks for your support peace and love.”
Sir Paul McCartney celebrated his friend’s birthday by sharing a picture of the pair of them jamming in one of more recent reunions.
Macca captioned the post: “Happiest of birthdays to my lovely mate @ringostarrmusic … the drum beat of my life! Love, Paul.”
Also in the photo alongside them were Paul and George with their wives Linda and Olivia.
Sir Ringo captioned the wedding photo: “It was 40 years ago today The love of my life said yes yes yes. And I said it right back peace and love.”
His wedding day took place just over 4 months after John Lennon’s murder, so sadly The Beatles couldn’t be fully reunited.
Nevertheless, the John Lennon estate commented on the picture with three love heart emojis on his behalf.
