Sir Ringo Starr and wife, Lady Barbara Starkey, celebrated the Beatles drummer's 78th birthday July 7 in Nice, France, where he and his All-Starr Band were currently on tour, by joining with fans to say “Peace & Love” at noon all around the world, his representative told Billboard. Also on hand were his brother-in-law Joe Walsh and his wife Marjorie, who is Barbara's sister, plus All-Starr Band members Graham Gouldman, Colin Hay, Steve Lukather, Gregg Bissonette and Warren Ham, plus Matt Sorum, added to the group for the day.

Walsh, Sorum and the All-Starrs performed two of Ringo's songs in tribute to him, and Walsh played a bit of his old band the James Gang's "Funk #49" leading up to the noon countdown.
