Ringo Starr's 73rd birthday is this Sunday, July 7, and the drummer is asking fans to give him a present, sort of.

It's not that the Beatles legend needs anything, it's that he wants to use the occasion to share his message of peace and love.

In a video posted to his website, Ringo asks fans to stop on Sunday "at noon, wherever you are, if you could please go, 'Peace and love, peace and love, peace and love,'" he says flashing the peace sign.  He adds, "That would be great."

Starr also is encouraging fans to share his video message -- apparently shot in his backyard garden, where birds are chirping.
