          Wowee Zowee

          PEACE & LOVE to Ringo's Birthday extravaganza!!! Can't wait for this fun day! ☮❤🎂

            I wish Paul Mc. had gotten  a big blow out like this for his recent birthday, but no doubt he lacked the time for it since he's writing a new musical based on the classic film "It's a Wonderful Life," among other projects. Ringo's really going all out--and he deserves it ! He's a real trooper for many years putting on countless concerts, all over, in the service of music,  which for now must come to a halt; and there's that "little thing" of being a member of the world's very first super group The Beatles,  which has been called "The Greatest Music Story ever told"--!!!

              And cherish  the magnificent celebration 7/7/10 @ RCMH! Unforgettable !

                "Happy birthday SIR RICHARD alias RINGO. Have a great day my long time buddy! - Paul"

                 

                 1 person, standing and indoor

                  HAPPY 80th Birthday Ringo!!!

                  Peace and Love 

                  Looking forward to your show tonight!

                    Happy Birthday from Space

                    HAPPY 80th  BIRTHDAY RINGO! ☮💚

                    And at 12 Noon lets not forget...

                    PEACE & LOVE  💗  PEACE & LOVE 💖 PEACE & LOVE

                      I slept through the Noon Eastern time, so just said Peace & Love at 1pm which was noon Central time! 😂

                      Happy 80th birthday to Ringo! ✌️❤️ The first birthday of his I was alive for was his 15th. First celebrated his 24th in 1964. 

                          Wish Paul had recorded a birthday greeting for him. Most of us I'm sure had already seen them doing Helter Skelter at Paul's concert. 

                          What I was wondering last month was why Ringo never said Happy Birthday to Paul on Twitter! ("John" & "George" did)

                            I was quite surprised and disappointed that there was no personal birthday greeting from Paul. Admittedly there was no personal greetings from John and George either but at least they had good excuses. 

                              ^ haha! Good one!

                              I wish Paul would loosen up & do more impromptu things like a birthday wish or a song sung from home without a big production like so many are doing now. Have you seen Neil Young's Fireside Sessions from this year? Very cool. Very relaxed. Promo here:

                                LOL Kestrel, good point!

                                I too was disappointed and surprised. I think many fans were. I was reading the You Tube comments and Twitter comments afterwards, and many people were asking "where's Paul's message?" He had plenty of time to film something, everything was prerecorded and it was announced days in advance;  they had to know people would want and expect to see him.

                                Even if he didn't sing something, a little Happy Birthday message would have been so nice. Especially since it's Ringo's 80th (a big one) and his other two Beatle buddies can't send him the love, it is sad that Paul is here and can, but didn't. Paul is always eager to show Ringo some brotherly love, there must be a good reason (though I can't imagine what it would be).

                                  Forgot to post this yesterday:

                                    Robert Gannon would call you a "so called fan" for talking like that. He berated Javier Lubelski (another former boardie) on FB for wondering why Paul didn't record a birthday greeting! (This was in a post created by Jen Dodge in the private group Paul McCartney Fanthology)  Gannon made 11 posts against Javi in a very mean-spirited way. 

                                      Sheila E ROCKED! Fantastic version of Come Together!

                                        McCartney was great for Ringo's 70th birthday when he showed up at Ringo's Radio City Hall concert in NYC and played "Birthday"  with Ringo and his band. See link below. I wish they used a clip from that  instead of the "Helter Skelter" performance. That being said, not recording even a short birthday message was not a good look IMO. Sheila E was great and I have always like Sheryl Crow so it was good to see her. Got a kick out of all the people who wished "Richie" a Happy Birthday.
