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.

Ringo’s video on this matter is hilarious! I suppose the guy does have a full plate, and really means it when he says, “peace and love, peace and love.” I only wish he’d have said that he’s chosen to pursue x, y and z with his time, which unfortunately leaves him no time for signing stuff. His delivery was a bit crotchety-old-guy like. He will still be loved for his past contributions, All-star tours and many other things I’m sure.

I agree with you. However, I feel like he could’ve just not said anything about the matter, no one is forcing him to answer the fanmail.

I’m sure it isn’t going to his actual house(s) anyway. He did come off as crotchety.

That’s pretty funny if this influx of fan mail happened as a result of a Simpsons episode. TV is much too influential.
