Ringo Starr


On his birthday on July 7, Ringo Starr will have his drum he bashed on The Beatles' 1964 U.S. tour presented as a museum exhibit at Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Ringo Starr is set for a very special honor to mark his upcoming 70th birthday - the gold-plated drum he bashed on The Beatles' 1964 U.S. tour is to become a museum item in New York. The Metropolitan Museum of Art will display the snare drum as part of a special exhibition honoring his big birthday on July 7.

The instrument, which was presented to Starr by the Ludwig Drum Company in Chicago, Illinois, will be on view to museum visitors from the rocker's birthday to the end of the year.

On another news, Ringo Starr will also start the second season of the PBS series "Live From the Artists Den" with a performance taped at the Met. It will be shown on the week of his birthday.
