Ringo Starr says no to fan mailOctober 14th, 2008 - 11:25 am ICT by IANS
London, Oct 14 (IANS) Former Beatle Ringo Starr is cutting himself off from his fans.He has put up a video message on his web site asking fans not to mail him after Oct 20.
“No more fan mail and nothing and no objects to be signed, nothing,” the message says.
The former drummer said: “Nothing will be signed after the 20th of October. If that is the date on the envelope, it’s gonna be tossed. I’m warning you with peace and love I have too much to do.”
He gave no reasons for the decision. In April, a foliage sculpture of Starr outside a train station in Liverpool was beheaded by vandals. BBC News says the performer had reportedly angered some locals when he told the BBC’s Jonathan Ross he missed nothing about the city.
Starr now lives in the US and France, apart from his house in Surrey, England. He had released his most recent album - Liverpool 8 - this January.
