You have the opportunity to add a hefty helping of Ringo Starr to your autumn.
Not only will the onetime drummer for The Beatles have a new book — “Another Day in the Life” — on store shelves, but the living legend also is slated to perform at the Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park.
Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band have a show booked at the venue Sept. 21, and you can get tickets here.
As for the book, from Genesis Publications, “Another Day in the Life” is third in a series of books from Starr, following “Postcards From the Boys” (2003) and “Photograph” (2013).
From a news release from the publisher:
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, in Another Day In The Life Ringo Starr shares personal moments from a legendary life in music, and offers a unique and inspiring look at the world around us.
Says Starr in the release:
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.
“Peace & love, Ringo.” Classy, that guy. (He is technically Sir Ringo Starr, after all.)
