Beatles Ringo Starr wont sign autographs anymore!October 13th, 2008 - 1:02 pm ICT by ANI
London, October 13 (ANI): Former Beatle Ringo Starr has told his fans not to send him mails requesting for autographs because he would soon stop signing them.
The drummer, hailed for his signature peace and love symbol, said that all fan mail would be thrown away as trash after October 20 since he was busy with a lot of work.
This is a serious message to everybody watching my update. Peace and love. Peace and love, the Sun quoted him as telling his fans through a video clip on his website.
I want to tell you after the 20th of October please do not send fan mail to any address you have.
Nothing will be signed after the 20th of October. If that is the date on the envelope, its gonna be tossed.
Im warning you with peace and love I have too much to do.
So no more fan mail. Thank you, thank you. And no objects to be signed. Nothing.
Anyway, peace and love, peace and love, he said.
Unlike his band mates David Bowie and Paul McCartney, who please their fans by keeping in touch with them through their websites, Ringos announcement is being seen as his second blunder this year.
Previously, on being asked by radio presenter Jonathan Ross whether he missed his home city, the oldest member in the band had replied that there was nothing much to miss.
Following his reply, the radio station was flooded with angry complaints while tirades burst out against him on the Internet. (ANI)
