RINGO STARR: ‘ANOTHER DAY IN THE LIFE’ BOOK COMING

By Posted on 0 10

Following the sell-out success of Postcards From The Boys (2003) and Photograph (2013), Genesis Publications announced a new Ringo Starr title, Another Day In The Life, to be published this autumn 2018. This third book will present a previously unpublished collection of his photographs, captioned with his own thoughts and anecdotes.

From announcement: “Reflecting his love of music, travel and nature, Another Day In The Life shows us the world as seen through Ringo’s eyes. From Los Angeles to Tokyo and everywhere in between, many of Ringo’s observational images celebrate the quirkiness of life. Other photographs are taken behind the scenes during historic events, such as Ringo’s acceptance of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and his return to New York’s Plaza Hotel, 50 years after The Beatles first visited the USA. Joined by Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh and a host of All-Starr friends, Starr shares personal moments from a legendary life in music.”

Ringo notes: “I love taking photos of random things, and seeing how they all fit together. Whether it is at home or on the road, certain things catch my eye – and when I see something that interests me, that’s the emotion of it, and I want to capture it. I am a photographer as well as a musician. I love working with Genesis and had so much fun putting this collection of images together, both taken by me + a few collected along the way. I hope you enjoy it too. Peace & love, Ringo.”

Ringo revealed news of the book at a June 6 press conference in Paris, France where he is kicking off his first European tour in seven years at the L’Olympia, with the latest iteration of his All Starr Band that features Steve Lukather, Gregg Rolie, with new member Graham Gouldman and returning All Starr alum, Colin Hay. Also in the band are Warren Ham and Greg Bissonnette.

The tour travels around continental Europe and includes two shows in Israel. Ringo will also celebrate his 10th Annual Peace & Love Birthday July 7, 2018 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Nice, France.

RINGO: “I’M LEFT-HANDED AND IT WAS A RIGHT-HANDED KIT. AND SO, MY STYLE IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT”

By Posted on 0 15

Ringo Starr reminisced about his first visit to Spain in 1965 with The Beatles, which he described as the best band on the planet, just hours ahead of a new European tour that kicks off on Wednesday in Paris, France and during which he is set to return to the Iberian country after more than half a century.
Ringo, said he was excited to go back to Spain, since his memories of the first time _ when Spain was still under the brutal military dictatorship of Gen. Francisco Franco _ were not the sharpest.
“I’m afraid I was a young lad in those days and we were on tour, so it was busy,” Starr said. “Didn’t we go to a bullfight?” “I became a vegetarian that day,” he added with a chuckle.

The former Beatle presented the upcoming tour in the French capital along with his All Starr Band, which is scheduled to play in 21 locations in 12 European countries, including France, Netherlands, Germany, Finland, Denmark, Czech Republic, Austria, Spain, Luxembourg, Monaco, Italy and _ controversially _ Israel.

The issue of Israel came up when asked at the presentation’s press conference about the pressure exerted by other stars, such as former Pink Floyd bassist-lyricist Roger Waters, on popular artists to avoid playing in the Middle Eastern country due to its human rights record.
“There are many people against and in favor, but I’m not a politician and what I want to do is to preach peace and love around the whole world,” he said while making the 1960s peace sign with his index and middle fingers.
“I am an emotional player. I got lucky that I bought the first drum set and didn’t know any better, because I’m left-handed and it was a right-handed kit. And so, my style is a little different,” he said.
“And I’m an incredible, beautiful human being,” he added with a sly smile.

Ringo and His All Star Band began their 41-stop tour at L’olympia in Paris.
