|Ringo just being Ringo again|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Monday, 03/10/08 8:21 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
It seems lately that Ringo Starr has developing more of a talent for angering his long-time fans.
After just recently saying he wouldn't be interested in moving back to Liverpool, this week it's all over the news that he's sick of being remembered as a Beatle.
He said, "Some days I'm just fed up with The Beatles. I think that when I die, the message on my tombstone will be 'Ex-Beatle'. Like I've done nothing else."
Ringo, we fans know you've done other things. Your seventies hits like Photograph and You're Sixteen will never be forgotten. La De Da on Vertical Man is great. And need we remind you, you yourself recreated the Beatles song Love Me Do on that very same album (a great rendition, by the way!) And I Wanna Be Santa Claus is wonderful fun that I can listen to over and over.
So, Ringo, lighten up. We love all your stuff, but be real. You're a Beatle. That's what you are, that's never gonna change. And that's OK.
And, don't be worried about your tombstone, because I think it's more likely to say, "Best Rock Drummer Ever".
