Last time Ringo Starr was on this blog it was for his decapitation in Liverpool for dissing the city of culture – much better covered by Chris Paul here. He has proved himself to be a grumpy old man once yet again it seems. Footage of the Beatle declaring “peace and love” while flipping out and forbidding any future correspondence with enclosures for signing is here. XFM has found a clip of when the one who pounded the skins for the fab four was happy to answer fan-mail, for Marge Simpson here.

Anyway time is running out if you want him to sign anything – the closing date is 20th Oct.
