Ringo at 70: ‘Peace and Love’

Ringo Starr, born Richard Starkey in Liverpool, England, turned 70 years old today. Interviewed by the New York Times for today’s paper, he said he had one request for those who want to wish him well on this day. He started this little ritual two years ago on his birthday. He asks that people raise their fingers in a peace sign and say “Peace and Love” at 12 noon, whether they are in London, Lowell, or Liberia. Happy birthday, Ringo.
