Ringo Starr Wants You to Celebrate His 70th Birthday With “Peace and Love”
It’s Ringo’s birthday today, and he has asked that we all put our fingers in the air, and say “peace and love.” Many of you might have forgotten where Ringo’s words “peace and love” initially came from. Though the words sound kind, he actually said it during an online message urging fans to stop writing him. “Please do not send fan mail to any address that you have, nothing will be signed,” said Ringo. “I have too much to do, and it will be tossed.” I often get angry when celebrities take such foul attitudes, but for some reason I found this to be absolutely hilarious. And I’m not the only one. When Paul McCartney was asked by Howard Stern about Ringo’s message, McCartney started laughing and said “that’s just Ringo. He has always been that way.” Watch Ringo’s message below.
