The museum says “Ringo: Peace & Love” is the first major exhibit ever dedicated to a drummer and the first to explore Ringo's career. The exhibit, to be located on the museum's second floor, will feature items from Ringo’s early life growing up in Liverpool, his early music from the Raving Texans to Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, his career with The Beatles and later as a solo artist, plus his tours with the All-Starr Band. It will include diverse artifacts, rare and never before seen photographs, documents, personal letters and footage.
Items in the exhibit will include the drum kits he played on "The Ed Sullivan Show" and at Shea Stadium, his "Sgt Pepper" outfit, the cape he wore in “Help!,” his red jacket worn during the Beatles' rooftop concert, plus personal letters, photographs and documents from the Starkey family and Ringo’s days with the Beatles.
