Ringo Star


We had this gig [in Jacksonville, Florida in 1964], and it was [supposed to be] segregated. And that was really hard to understand. I mean, most of our heroes are African American musicians and singers, so we just didn’t understand it. And we said, “Well, we’re not going” and I think so there wouldn’t be a traffic hold-up in the town, they said, okay, you can play it [integrated]. That was a good move on our part, but it was strictly because lot of black musicians were our heroes. So it just didn’t seem right.. Ringo Starr on secregation in America

a parody of "Photograph" by Ringo Starr
I wrote this parody after Ringo went on a rant in October 2008, stating that he was no longer signing autographs. I sent it in to a radio station, who's staff produced and played the song on the air the very next day..

Banned by a few radio stations in the U.S. in 1975 because of its mentioning of marijuana and cocaine. This was even though the lyrics say that the singer used to use these drugs but doesn't use them anymore. The song still managed to become a #3 hit in the U.S.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

""Peace and Love" Moment"
The former Beatle marked his 72nd birthday on July 7th by holding a "peace and love" moment at noon. He asked people worldwide to do the same thing at 12 o'clock in their time zones. The idea came to him in 2008 and he has been doing it ever since. The idea has caught on via the internet, Starr receiving positive comments from Europe, Asia, and other places in the world that have taken up the practice. Starr is currently touring the US with his 13th All Starr Band.
