Ringo Starr did not like being in IndiaApril 5th, 2009 - 11:38 am ICT by ANI
New York, Apr 5 (ANI): Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has revealed that he did not like being in India much during 1968.
Starr, 68, and the other Beatles members had at the time been followers of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
“There were lepers without fingers and noses,” the New York Post quoted the drummer as saying at a press conference promoting Radio City concert to benefit meditation training for kids.
Starr said he left the ashram after 10 days because “the food was too spicy”.
Paul McCartney, who was flanked by fellow meditators Donovan, flutist Paul Horn and Mike Love of the Beach Boys, looked quizzical after Starr finished.
“I haven’t much to say after that . . . leprosy?” McCartney said. (ANI)
