The commemorative photo memoir features some never-before-seen photos of the All Starr Band’s 30 years in the spotlight. The photos are accompanied by candid stories from Starr, a Beverly Hills resident.
Additionally, five hundred exclusive-limited hardcover “signature edition” books personally signed by Starr will be offered for $495 each.

In time to celebrate the new year, Starr has also released a new song, “Here’s to the Nights,” from his upcoming EP Zoom In, set to arrive March 19th, 2021.
Written by Diane Warren, the song features backing vocals by Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Finneas, Sheryl Crow, Chris Stapleton, Lenny Kravitz, Ben Harper, Dave Grohl, Jenny Lewis Corinne Bailey Rae, Eric Burton, and Yola.
“When Diane presented this song to me I loved the sentiment of it,” Starr said in a statement. “This is the kind of song we all want to sing along to, and it was so great how many wonderful musicians joined in. I wanted it out in time for New Year’s because it feels like a good song to end a tough year on. So here’s to the nights we won’t remember and the friends we won’t forget–and I am wishing everyone peace and love for 2021.”
