To celebrate the publication of Ringo Starr’s PHOTOGRAPH memoir, on September 25 at 8:00pm, Ringo Starr will appear on stage at LA’s historic El Rey Theatre. During the course of a moderated conversation, the audience will be invited to join Ringo Starr looking through rare and unseen photographs drawn from his personal archives. Ringo Starr will be revisiting memories of his life in music – from his early childhood days in Liverpool through to The Beatles and beyond.

In the words of Ringo Starr:

‘These are shots that no one else could have. I just had the camera with me a lot of the time. There’s a lot of shots of "the boys" that only I could have taken. Together they chart the story of four lads from Liverpool trying to live normal lives amidst the frenzy that surrounded them.’ – RINGO STARR

25th February 2015

On this day we are remembering George.  

Here is a special announcement from http://georgeharrison.com

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY GEORGE! On this day 25 February 1943 George Harrison was born in Liverpool, England. Actually, George himself once said that his actual birthday was the 24th February!

So to celebrate both days, here's a never before seen clip of George singing 'Congratulations'.  It was filmed during the shoot for the 'All Things Must Pass' 30th Anniversary Edition in 2000 at Friar Park. It's a Traveling Wilburys tune, sung by Bob Dylan on their first album: 'Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1.'

Watch George sing 'Congratulations'
