I guess he’s made enough money by now that it doesn’t matter…

I love The Beatles, but the more I hear about them these days, the less I like them as people. They've totally missed the boat with downloadable music, and Ringo has forgotten how he got to where he is – the fans.

Ringo Starr: I've got to get fans out of my life

Former Beatle Ringo Starr says he has had enough of signing fan mail and memorabilia.

"I want to tell you please… do not send fan mail to any address that you have. Nothing will be signed after the 20th of October. If that is the date on the envelope, it's gonna be tossed.

  1. I can understand being cranky after so long, but he could have just slowed down on answering fan mail rather than telling fans that he wants them out of his life. I guess all this whining from the rich and famous bugs me when so many are suffering at the moment. Shouldn't he be glad that his music provides a "happy place" for people in these hard times?

  2. My problem is more with his tone ("getting fans out of my life") than the fact that he doesn't want to keep signing things. I don't think any star has to autograph things for fans. Maybe he should start refusing his royalty checks if he's tired of the consequences of success.
