Happy 70th Birthday Ringo!

Wow, I hope I look this good at 70:

so your going to a party party

Emily Singer writes a terrific review of his birthday bash all-star concert, you can read it here.

Apparently it was pretty special, his all star lineup was:

Wally Palmar – guitar, bass, harmonica, vocals
Rick Derringer – guitar, vocals
Edgar Winter – keyboards, saxophone, vocals
Gary Wright – keyboards, vocals
Richard Page – Bass, vocals
Gregg Bissonette – drums, vocals

Then his son Zak Starkey took over on drums for the classic With A Little Help From My Friends, and some long time friends joined him on stage: Yoko Ono, Joe Walsh, Angus Young, Nils Lofgren, Jon Bon Jovi, Mick Jones, Steve Van Zandt, Brian Johnson, Max Weinberg, and Jeff Lynne to name a few.

It all culminated when none other than Paul McCartney surprised everyone when he came out onstage, gave Ringo a hug, and the band (with Ringo playing drums, of course) launched into Birthday!

Coolest.House.Ever.

One of our local TV channels KPLR 11 did a feature on this guys ultimate man cave:

the interior is even more cool

Check out a photo gallery of it, it’s an amazing 3 stories and 17,000 square foot dwelling in a limestone cave:
