“Meat Free Mondays is a great idea though I live meat free every day. Being vegetarian is good for your body, good for the planet and a peace and loving thing to do.”
For all his many creative successes, Ringo is and always will be first and foremost a musician, a drummer. Throughout his career Ringo has received nine GRAMMY® Awards, and has twice been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — first as a Beatle and then as solo artist. Between 1970 and 2020, Ringo has released 20 solo studio records. He has acted in over 15 films, received an Academy Award®, and has been nominated as an actor for an Emmy®. Ringo has published three books; had a stint as a male fashion model, and that same year went behind the lens as the photographer for some Foo Fighters’ PR photos. In 2018 he was knighted at Buckingham Palace for his services to music. He is also a visual artist, having had numerous exhibitions of his work and in November 2019 his Peace and Love sculpture was installed in Beverly Hills Parks in Los Angeles California.
