The GRAMMY Museum, in cooperation with Ringo Starr, debuted a major new exhibition, Ringo: Peace & Love on June 12, 2013. This one-of-a-kind, limited-run exhibit offers visitors an unprecedented in-depth look at all aspects of Starr's musical and creative life - as a musician, artist, actor, and as the man the world knows and loves simply as 'Ringo.' It also aims to propel Starr's universal message of peace and love.

Ringo: Peace & Love is both the first major exhibit ever dedicated to a drummer and the first to explore the extraordinary career of the 7-time GRAMMY Award® winner. The scope of exhibit spans Ringo's early life growing up in Liverpool, from Raving Texans turned Rory Storm, from The Beatles, to becoming a solo artist and then to the All Starrs with whom he is on tour now - this unique collection brings together diverse artifacts, rare and never before seen photographs, documents, personal letters and footage.

Ringo: Peace & Love is located on the second floor and includes:

  • The drum kit Ringo played on Let It Be, Abbey Road, and The White Album
  • The drum kit he played on The Ed Sullivan Show
  • Ringo's Sgt Pepper Suit
  • The red jacket worn during the filming of The Beatles' rooftop concert
  • Personal letters, photographs and documents from the Starkey family and Ringo's days with The Beatles

It's also an interactive exhibit, where visitors can take a drum lesson with Ringo.

Ringo: Peace & Love was on display until April 27, 2014 in The GRAMMY Museum's Special Exhibits Gallery.
