The event was also a food drive for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank where guests were asked to bring five canned goods each. Hard Rock International President and CEO, Hamish Dodds and Bill Ayres, Founder of WhyHunger brought their organizations together a few years ago to join forces in the fight against poverty around the world. Yoko Ono agreed with their idea of using the slogan “Imagine There’s No Hunger” for their campaign and granted permission for use of John Lennon’s famous song “Imagine.”

In tribute, at last night’s ‘Imagine There’s No Hunger’ launch event, Ringo Starr joined Dave Stewart, Edgar Winter and other musicians onstage to sing the finale of “Give Peace A Chance.” Other performances earlier in the night included Edgar Winter singing “Come Together” (with a great sax solo) and “Revolution” and Dave Stewart singing “Mind Games” and “Imagine.”
