[Posted by Adam Forrest on Friday, 07/13/12 4:33 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Last Saturday, Ringo Starr turned 72, and Gillian Lomax celebrated Ringo's birthday on her Magical History Tour of Los Angeles by getting the biggest birthday card she could find and inviting all the fans on her tour that day to sign their birthday wishes to Ringo on it. The card was then passed onto an associate of Ringo's who promised to get it to him.

Gillian's Beatles tour of Los Angeles includes several interesting locations that are directly related to Ringo, so celebrating his birthday on the tour was extra fun for the fans on the tourthat day, including someone visiting Los Angeles from Kentucky, and one gentleman from Liverpool!
No place in the U.S. has as much combined Beatles history as Los Angeles, and Gillian has spent a lot of time researching her tour. "Most people don't associate Los Angeles with The Beatles, but in fact they've had a personal connection with our city since 1964," said Gillian, who was originally raised in Merseyside across from Liverpool.
Gillian, currently the Beatles news reporter on Beatlesarama.com, has worked in a wide range of media outlets including Radio Como in Italy, as music editor for the British Weekly, senior correspondent for Britsound Radio, and in Los Angeles on 97.1 KLSX and 95.5 KLOS where she reported on Beatles news for "Breakfast with the Beatles."
The cost for the four hour tour is $65. For more information and reservations, visit www.amagicalhistorytour.com.
