Ringo Starr had quite the 70th birthday celebration on July 7, at Radio City Music Hall in New York. Not only did Paul McCartney join him for an onstage reunion in playing the occasion-appropriate Beatles song 'Birthday,' more than a dozen other musical mates joined the legendary drummer for a singalong on 'With a Little Help From My Friends.'
As a consolation Ringo-related belated birthday gift to those who were unable to witness the reunion, here is a video clip of Starr performing 'With a Little Help From My Friends,' excerpted from the second-season premiere of the PBS program 'Live From the Artists Den.' Starr's set, during which he is backed by Ben Harper and his band Relentless7, along with Joan Osborne, was taped at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. This session can be seen in its entirety starting this week on local PBS stations in the US.
Other musical guests to be broadcast during the second season of 'Live From the Artists Den' will include Tori Amos, Corinne Bailey Rae, the Black Crowes, and Booker T. and the Drive-by Truckers with Bettye LaVette.
