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.
