Ringo Starr is urging fans to help him celebrate his 73rd birthday on Sunday (07Jul13) by joining in his annual 'Peace & Love movement'.

The former Beatles star's followers have been marking his birthdays since 2008 by flashing the peace sign and uttering "peace and love" at noon on 7 July in timezones across the globe - and Starr has posted a video on his website asking fans to follow the tradition again in 2013.

Standing in the garden at his home in Britain, the Wrack My Brain singer says, "At noon, wherever you are, if you could please go, 'Peace and love, peace and love...' that'll be great."

Starr will be at home in England with family and friends celebrating his birthday.
