Ringo turns 70, Beatles and Grateful Dead Remembered

Jul 7, 2010 by

Richard Starkey, better known as Ringo Starr is celebrating his 70th birthday today. Ringo played Red Rocks twice including the first ever major rock concert there in 1974. While there were 2,000 tickets left unsold to that show, many people that were at the concert think that an overall lack of security and common knowledge that it was easy to sneak in make it one of the most well attended shows in Red Rocks’ history. Ringo returned to the stage 36 years later with his All Starr Band. Happy Birthday Ringo!
