The Big Dream: David Lynch Presents Ringo Starr with Lifetime Achievement Award for Peace and Love

With only two Beatles still surviving, it's near impossible for either Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr to stay out of the limelight.

Macca, aged 71, is still as prolific as he was in his 40s, yet Ringo, 73, remains ever more humble and tame (especially since Harry Nilsson died back in 1994).

However, it was the strong, near silent drummer who received the Lifetime Achievement Award for Peace & Love at the David Lynch Foundation's gala.

Here's an oldie, but goodie idea as to precisely what a David Lynch Foundation gala looks and sounds like.

Transcendental, indeed.

David Lynch led the ceremony this go 'round, as it was his organization bestowing the laurel.

And the night featured various musicians, such as Starr's brother-in-law Joe Walsh, performing their favorite top-shelf Beatles songs because, let's face it, they're all top-shelf.

Lynch, though, remained reluctant to discuss himself or his new album.

"Even though Lynch recently released an album of his own electric-guitar based improvisations, he begged off performing," notes the L.A. Times' Randy Lewis.

In fact, Lynch even retorted, "Oh, no. I'm not getting out there to play. I'm not a public guy."

Whereas the auteur may want to remain in the credits, his latest solo release The Big Dream does provide enough space for Lynch to speak more freely.

If you haven't picked up a copy, shoot on over to the iTunes store or any other online outlet to purchase your own copy.

David Lynch's The Big Dream is sure to play on your heartstrings, as well as tapping on those weird fears and creepings you so much wish to be exorcised.
