Ringo Starr Turns 70

Does this make you feel old? On Wednesday, Ringo Starr turns 70 years old. The Beatle plans to celebrate the occasion with a private event at the Hard Rock Café in New York followed by a performance with his band, the All Starr Band, at Radio City Music hall. “As far as I’m concerned, in my head, I’m 24,” Starr tells The New York Times. “That’s just how it is. The number, yeah, it’s high. But I just felt I’ve got to celebrate it. I’m on my feet and I’m doing what I love to do, and I’m in a profession, as a musician, where we can go on for as long as we can go on. I’m not hiding from it, you know.”
