let's give back to him some of the joy he has given us.

Please send a word of thanks or support (and NOTHING TO SIGN) to:

Ringo Starr
1st Floor
90 Jermyn Street
London SW1Y6JD
UK

And please pass the word on to everyone you know. I'd love to see his
mailbox full of thanks and love, not requests and complaints.




Ummmm...I got the impression he doesn't want any kind of mail from fans...with or without "peace and luv".


Me too...they'll get 'tossed' without being opened.

War and Hate.
I go back so far... I'm in front of me!

This is an official statement I just found on the "Beatle News Briefs" page at
http://abbeyrd.best.vwh.net/news/1011noautographs.html

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RINGO STARR STATEMENT REGARDING RECENT VIDEO UPDATE ON HIS WEBSITE:

Ringo Starr recently put a video update on his official website asking people not to continue to send fan mail to be signed after October 20. This was in direct response to an inordinate amount of items which have recently appeared for sale on e-bay, and to those that repeatedly send cards and items to be signed.

This message was not aimed at "real fans" and after over 45 yrs of signing we know they will understand. Ringo has always signed items and is in fact the only Beatle to have been doing so.

Ringo also feels strongly that it is a waste of paper and we all should be mindful of our carbon footprint. At the end of the day Ringo wanted to make a message that was clear and to the point and is confident his real fans understand that. That said, the recent response from the media has prompted him to clarify that video.

"How amazed am I to the reaction to my video update. I hope this statement gets as much. Please read this in a mellow way. Peace and love, Ringo."


# Update (10/16/08) See the statement above issued Wednesday from Ringo's press office in answer to the coverage of this story.
# In his statement, Ringo said he hoped his statement would get as much coverage as the video, but it appears it hasn't. We saw very few links Wednesday. Here's one from WSYR.
Amen to all that. Blessings!!
Om Namah Shivaya !!!!

The fact that he has been reading and replying to these letters all these years proves what a great guy he really is.

I agree bonovox but sometimes at a certain age you need a little help from your freinds.

This has been blown way out of porportion.
He made the statement because he found out that the things he was signing for many people were just being sold on E-BAY. People making an easy BUCK and not really fans.

:salute Good job Ringo......Fans keep those things. They DON"T sell them for profit.
