Can a member of my absolutely favourite pop group as a teenager really be turning 68 today? It seems like yesterday that my schoolfriends and I jostled for the best position to see the Beatles passing by our school on their way from the airport when they visited Sydney in 1963 (or was it 1964? Perhaps I am getting old after all).
Yes, it's Ringo Starr's birthday, and when asked by Larry King what he would like as a birthday present, Ringo replied "peace and love". He wanted people to stop whatever they were doing at 12 noon all over the world and make the "Peace" sign.
