In the 10th annual "Peace & Love" ceremony, Ringo once again invited fans from all over the world to say or post those words at noon.
"It's getting better every year," Ringo said of the event. "It's great for me, because I do promote peace and love, and I get lots of support now from you guys."
Throughout his storied career, Ringo has given fans just about everything except an autobiography, and he explained why.
"I have been invited to write my own autobiography and they only want those eight years," Ringo told ET, referring to the years that he was active with the Beatles. "I keep telling them it'll be three volumes before I get to the band."
In a new unauthorized biography, Ringo: With a Little Help, there are 38 pages before the Beatles are mentioned. Ringo had no part in the book, which includes personal stories about his 35-year marriage to Barbara Bach and how the couple found sobriety together 27 years ago.
"He was an alcoholic and went to rehab with his wife Barbara," said author Michael Seth Starr (no relation to the musician). "He got drunk on the way to rehab."
Looking back on his career, Ringo doesn't feel overshadowed by his former bandmates, having escaped the outcome that John Lennon feared for him.
"John Lennon once said, when the Beatles broke up, that it was Ringo that he worried about the most," Michael said. "He didn't want to see him playing in some club in Northern England while a waiter was delivering pasta with dishes clattering around."
