Ringo Starr mostly know for his small stint as the Drummer for a band some may remember called “The Beatles” has taken a stand alongside other musicians such as Bruce Springsteen, for North Carolina’s HB2 or what most know as the “Bathroom Bill”.

The Beatles drummer called off the All Starr Band’s June 18th concert at Cary, North Carolina’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre over the bill, which discriminates against transgender people and the LGBT community. “I’m sorry to disappoint my fans in the area, but we need to take a stand against this hatred. Spread peace and love,” Starr said in a statement. “How sad that they feel that this group of people cannot be defended.”

Starr also called upon his fans to fight the “bigotry” and “support organizations that are fighting to overturn this law in whatever way we can.” “As Canned Heat sang, ‘Let’s work together,'” Starr said in conclusion. “And the Beatles said, ‘All you need is love.'”
