In conjunction with the release of our virtual exhibit and archived public program featuring Ringo Starr, the GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to present a brand new interview with the legendary Ringo Starr, to discuss his forthcoming EP “Zoom In” and new book, “Ringo Rocks: 30 Years of the All Starrs 1989-2019.” The interview is moderated by GRAMMY Museum Founding Executive Director, Bob Santelli.
Ringo’s forthcoming EP, titled “Zoom In,” was recorded at Starr's home studio between April-October 2020. His lead single “Here’s To The Nights” is written by Diane Warren & Ringo, and features guest singers including Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Corinne Bailey Rae, Eric Burton (Black Pumas), Sheryl Crow, FINNEAS, Dave Grohl, Ben Harper, Lenny Kravitz, Jenny Lewis, Steve Lukather, Chris Stapleton and Yola.
Meanwhile, Ringo’s new book “Ringo Rocks: 30 Years of the All Starrs 1989-2019” celebrates the 30th anniversary of Ringo’s All Starr Band. The commemorative photo memoir features some never-before-seen photos of the All Starr Band's 30 record-setting years in the spotlight and life on the road, compiled by Henry Diltz and Jill Jarrett (who have followed Ringo Starr's All Starr career since 1989), as well as exclusive images from many other photographers and members of the touring crew. Accompanying the photos are Starr's candid stories, looking back on his legacy as the leader of one of the longest running live touring bands in the world - and all that goes into managing a band of music legends - and looking ahead to the All Starrs' future making music together in a post pandemic world.
