Ringo Starr's drumkit from the Beatles' performances on the The Ed Sullivan Show and the red jacket he wore at the band's final performance atop Abbey Road Studios are part of a new exhibit opening July 12th at the Grammy Museum in L.A., the Los Angeles Times reports.

The museum's third exhibit to focus on the life and career of a Beatle (John Lennon and George Harrison were the other two), "Ringo: Peace & Love" is being touted as both "the first major exhibition to explore the life of Ringo Starr," as well as the first in the U.S. to focus specifically on a rock drummer. The exhibit will run through November, while a tour through select cities will follow with dates to be announced later.

The exhibit will include a slew of never-before-seen photos, correspondence and film footage, along with memorabilia from throughout his career, including his costume from the cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

The exhibit will also include an interactive feature that will allow visitors to pick up a few drumming tips from Starr himself.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
