Ringo's exhibit opened this month, and I got a chance to see it today. It's an wonderful exhibit and takes up the entire 2nd floor of the museum. They have costumes, memorabilia, artwork, photos, video, not to mention drum kits on display. There's the drum kit from the Ed Sullivan show, the mahogany one seen in "Let It Be," the Swarovski crystal drum kit he used in, I think, '08. They also have the Sgt. Pepper drumhead on display.

As for the costumes, they have, among many others, the Beatle boots, the collarless suit, the hot pink Billy Shears uniform and his striped-sleeve outfit from "Help!" And you really get a sense for how adorably little Ringo is.

There are also 3 iPad stations set up so you can browse through his Photograph book in its entirety. They also have prints of select photos on display.

They also have some fun interactive displays - ones that let your remix music or sit at a drum kit. The most popular part of the exhibit, clearly, was the recording booth to sing along to "Yellow Submarine." There was always someone hovering outside the door waiting for the last one to finish.

No photography allowed, so you'll have to make do with the photos from the press preview Ringo attended.

The exhibit will be up until March. I got a membership so I'm probably going back. :-D

Lucky barsteward! Love that very early bass drum with the bug antennae on the B of Beatles. They definitely came up with a better logo with the dropped t! So, what do you reckon the bus fare from London to LA would work out at?

Oh, that's right, I forgot to mention that logo. That was like Hello Kitty adorable.

It was great just being able to get to so close to the logos that you could see every brush stroke.

That's awesome! Wish I could get out to LA to see it, it looks fantastic. It's nice to see Ringo getting some well-deserved exposure, the guy's a legend! :D

There's a podcast discussion on the exhibit with Ken Michaels and Steve Marinucci here (warning: intro music's a bit loud compared to the rest of the content).

Also, another account and some pics at the Fest for Beatles Fan site.

[x-posted from the news thread]

* The Grammy Museum announced another member event: Gary Astridge discussing Ringo's Beatles Kits and Gear on April 27 at 11am.

* Also, they're selling street banners from the Peace and Love exhibit at $229 a pop ($50 off for members).

* Earlier this week, I went to the talk by Ringo's photographer, Rob Shanahan, and posted images to my instagram.
