Grammy Museum nabs a Beatle

Ringo_ap_6_

Ringo Starr will promote his upcoming album "Y Not" with a Jan. 19 performance and interview at downtown's Grammy Museum. But don't get too excited --  the event is sold out. An advance members-only sale lasted all of 15 minutes, according to a spokeswoman for the institution.

Ringo will appear at the museum's 200-seat theater, and will be interviewed by the museum's executive director, Robert Santelli, before performing a handful of songs from his Hip-O Records album, which will be in stores Tuesday. Joining Ringo at the museum will be Ben Harper and his band, the Relentless 7, which will back Starr during the performances. 

All Grammy Museum interviews and performances are archived and available for viewing at the facility, which is located across from Staples Center at downtown's L.A. Live complex. Clips from the concert will also make their way to the Grammy Museum website, promises the spokeswoman.

The year-old Grammy Museum counts about 2,000 members among its stable, and will open a new exhibit, "Elvis at 21: Photographs by Alfred Wertheimer," on Friday. An opening interview with Wertheimer set for Friday evening at the museum is also sold out. The Los Angeles Times will post online today a story on the exhibit and select photos from the display.

I hope Ringo's saved up enough money for the string of hair salons he aspired to open, because this Beatles fad won't last long.
