Don't Nobody Care About You Ringo Starr
Another one of my heroes has taken a turn toward the dark side. Out of all of the people/entertainers I've idolized, this one hurts, the mostest. In case you haven't heard, Ringo Starr will no longer be signing autographs and the assorted junk people have been sending him in the past 210 years. I guess the one question is why. Certainly Starr is a long way from his mop-top days so this point the mail can't be coming at a fever pitch. Also since he has been doing so long, and clearly with devotion, why stop now? Starr took the time out to speak his mind on a video clip.
Kill that noise fool...
Ain't he something? Carrying on like he's Al Green. If Ringo Starr signed something of mine, I'd totally remove it. Seriously! This is a slap in the face to all of his fans who want their fake Beatles memorabilia signed by someone who drove Pete Best to a life of obscurity.
Verdict: Shut Up Ringo
More Unsettling News: It turns out that Starr turned down my offer at being one of my editors. Ok Ringo, suit yourself, but you'll never get a job like this one. I' m a tough but fair boss too!
Peace and love my Aunt Fannie!
