Ringo Starr To Fans: Stop Writing Me!
Famed Beatles drummer and Ludwig Drum endorser Ringo Starr has publicly addressed his fans with a message: stop writing me!
In a video clip posted on Starr’s official website he says…
“This is a serious message to everybody watching, I want to tell you that after the 20th of October please do not send any fanmail to any address you have. If that is the date on the envelope, it’s gonna be tossed. I’m warning you with peace and love, I have too much to do. So no more fanmail. Thank you. No more objects to be signed. Nothing.”
The NME hypothesized that an abnormally large amount of fanmail being sent to Ringo Starr could be the result of a 1991 Simpsons episode he was featured in. The episode in question is titled “Brush With Greatness” and in it Starr claims that he will answer every piece of fanmail he receives.
