Ringo Starr, the drummer for the British rock band The Beatles, is celebrating his 80th birthday today.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, according to BBC, Starr will forgo his annual birthday gathering and instead perform a concert on YouTube at 8 p.m. ET today.

“... He will put on a virtual charity concert on YouTube called Ringo’s Big Birthday Show. He’ll be joined by Sir Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Ben Harper, Sheryl Crow, Gary Clark Jr. and Sheila E to benefit Black Lives Matter, The David Lynch Foundation, MusiCares and WaterAid,” reported the BBC.

Starr was the last to join The Beatles. The group was formed in 1960 in Liverpool with Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and drummer Pete Best. Starr joined as the drummer in 1962.
