David Lynch honored Ringo Starr with a Lifetime of Peace and Love Award this week.

The presentation took place at a party held in Ringo’s honor at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles by the David Lynch Foundation, a non-profit educational organization which was established in July 2005 to ensure that anyone at-risk for traumatic stress can learn Transcendental Meditation.

“It’s a weird place to be this evening,” Starr said. “All this praise is overwhelming really. It’s really great to look out and see all these people I recognize and three of them are meditating.”

Attendees included Jim Carrey, Sheila E. and Edgar Winter, while performers included Ringo, Joe Walsh (who also happens to be Ringo’s brother-in-law), Ben Folds, Peter Frampton, Ben Harper, Toto's Steve Lukather, Don Was, Bettye LaVette and many more. David Lynch joined Steve Lukather on stage for a spoken word performance.

Video messages from Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono were also played during the evening.

“Meditation was started thousands of years ago – and I was there,” quipped Ringo.
