Musicians: Ringo Starr with Ben Harper and the Relentless 7
Museum members, who received prior notice on programs, bought up the tickets in 15 minutes. Some of these showed up on ebay. It was a very intimate gathering of about 200 people. Lots of celebrities were in attendance: Barbara Bach and her sister Marjorie, Joe Walsh, Edgar Winter and his wife, Barbara Orbison, actor Jason Schatzman, and Dhani Harrison (no Olivia). Ringo answered questions for about an hour and performed four songs: "Photograph," "The Other Side of Liverpool," "Walk With Me" and "A Little Help From My Friends." Among the questions were audience questions, including one asking about the remake of "Yellow Submarine". His answer was that the story won't change, but it will have wonderful effects. Ben Harper and the band also performed two songs of their own.
Rockerrrazzi went inside the Grammy Museum to catch Ringo Starr.
