The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will give Ringo Starr a star on the Walk of Fame in February.
A ceremony will be held at 7pm on Monday 8 February in front of the Capitol Records building, where stars for John Lennon and George Harrison are also located. Paul McCartney is to be similarly honoured at a future date to be decided.
A star for a Starr – what an honor and a privilege it is to be walked on! Peace & Love.
