I'm at the unveiling waiting for festivities to begin. I'll post an account later but in the meantime I posted a couple of photos at Instagram (including the swag bag). 

Dave Grohl swept past me as we waited in line. :-D

Event finished. All my pics are at Instagram including a nice close up of Dave Grohl.

Ringo at first sat in the audience - he showed up with Olivia and Barbara - for most of the event before it was time for his own Q&A and kept us laughing with the occasional quip. Dave Grohl spoke as well as the drummer from The Black Crowes and Henry Diltz, the official photographer at Woodstock. And then, of course, the man himself. We also got to see the film made for The Grammy exhibit.

Really fun event, a great celebration of Ringo's life and talent. I feel honored to have been there. And I'm pleasantly surprised even cheap seats got a great swag bag. It was worth every penny. Someone was recording so hopefully it'll all end up online.

Thanks, Trud!! Glad to have a forum to share these things.

 

* LA Times blurb on Ringo's Photograph event. More will appear in today's Calendar section. Also, a photo at Rolling Stone's site.

* NorthJersey.com article on the teens in that one photograph. Doesn't look like there'll be a reunion of survivors, though.

I know what you are talking about, parlance. I think we'd all bust without having each other as a release valve.

LA Times' Calendar article here. The writer and I have a difference of interpretation of events in the beginning, though:

"That's one of me!" said Ringo Starr excitedly when he saw his face on the big screen Wednesday. "I like that one!"

Ringo wasn't excited so much as being wry. The Arclight was having technical issues, and as we waited in silence for something to happen, Ringo spoke up for the first time as the slide show was going: "Well, here's a picture of me..." making us all laugh.

One of my favorite stories of the day was from the photographer, Henry Diltz, who told a story of shooting a Beatle rehearsal, and being worried he'd get in the band's way. So he asked Ringo if he was okay with him shooting around them. And Ringo said to him, "Look. I'm the drummer. You're the photographer. It's that simple!"

So, after that, we got a taste of Ringo's frank nature at the beginning of his portion of the Q&A. He addressed the audience for a bit by way of introduction to the book. Then, he turned to the moderator and said, "So, you got a question for me, lady?" LMAO! Two of the women next to me were also laughing. I think we were pretty much the giggling gallery for the event.

Witnessing that famously gruff sense of humor in person was so thrilling, definitely the highlight of the event for me.

Got an email from Genesis - official photos from the event are up here.

And if you're feeling flush, the book and limited edition art prints are available to order.
