Ringo Starr Gets Virtual Exhibit At The Grammy Museum Next Month
Ringo Starr will be the focus of a new virtual exhibition held by the Grammy museum next month.
The Beatles’ drummer, 80, will be celebrated with rare and unseen photos, artifacts, letters and personal items, as well as a virtual version of his 2013 exhibition, Peace & Love, which originally opened at the Grammy museum and was the first to celebrate the career of a drummer.
The exhibit will kick off on 4th March with an archival interview with Ringo from 2010, conducted by Bob Santelli, the Executive Director of the Grammy Museum. This will be followed by a brand new interview between the pair. The first interview is part of a series called Live From The Vault, which features a programme of artists including Mavis Staples.
The new interview will be available on 18th March and will focus on his new EP, Zoom In, as well as his 2020 book release, Ringo Rocks: 30 Years Of The All Stars 1989-2019. Zoom In will be released on 19th March and the song Here’s To The Nights features vocals from Dave Grohl, Sheryl Crow, Lenny Kravitz and his Beatles band mate, Paul McCartney, among others. You can listen to the single below.
Ringo’s upcoming EP, Zoom In, was recorded in his home studio over a period of six months, beginning in April 2020. The drummer collaborated with a variety of songwriters and producers, including Jeff Zobar, who wrote the title track, Zoom In, Zoom Out. The song, which is truly for our times, features The Doors’ Robbie Krieger on guitar. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Ringo said “The record is called Zoom In, because we’re on Zoom. Everything I do is on Zoom. I just thought it was so relevant to the days we’re living in right now.”
The virtual exhibition and the interviews will be premiered on the Grammy museum’s official online streaming service, COLLECTION:live.
