Ringo Starr is declaring July 7, the day he celebrates his 68th birthday, “Peace and Love Day.”
During an interview with Access Hollywood, the former Beatles drummer said he wanted “peace and love,” as a present this year and he’s asking fans to take part.
“Let’s make my birthday, July the 7th at noon, all over America… whichever state you’re in, Pacific or Eastern, Western… peace and love,” Ringo told Access.
Ringo is instructing fans to say the phrase “Peace and love,” when the clock strikes 12 PM, no matter where they are in the world.
“Everybody goes ‘Peace and love,’” he explained. “In the office, on the bus… wherever.”
Starr, who will be on the road starting June 19 with his tenth ‘Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band,’ added that whenever he performs, he always preaches peace and love to his fans.
“It’s still peace and love for me, I’m a product of the ‘60s and it was a very influential period in my life, and you know, my head was turned around a bit, my eyes were opened as it were, " said Starr. “In fact, I even have it on my arm, peace and love. I see nothing wrong with peace and love.”
