Big Day In Big Apple For Ringo Starr

Ringo Starr made a day and night of it in New York on his 70th birtday.  The Beatles drummer dropped by the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square for a reception and to cut a large birthday cake that was no piece of cake for pastry chefs to put together, thanks to 100+ temps in the Big Apple.  Then it was off to Radio City Music Hall for a concert with his All-Star Band, where Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono made a rare appearance together to extend their birthday best to RingoMcCartney and Starr appeared together on the Radio City stage just over a year ago at a benefit concert (story).  What made this occasion historic was that it marked the only time members of the Beatles had played the song Birthday from the Double White album together live.  Also making the scene were George Harrison's widow Olivia, Keith Richards, Steve Van Vandt, Nils Lofgren and Max Weinberg of the E Street Band, Mick Jones of Foreigner, ELO and Traveling Wilbury member Jeff Lynne and Wilbury veteran Roy Orbison's widow Barbara.
