The Britain’s Got Talent judge hit out at the ex Beatle after it was reported that he refused to give an autograph to an elderly woman at the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday – making her cry. It’s claimed he snapped at her: “I don’t sign autographs, read that on my website.” Piers ranted on his blog: “Ringo was always the least talented, ugliest, jammiest member of the Beatles. “I think we can now safely add the words ‘disgusting’, ‘selfish’, ‘greedy’ and ‘thoughtless’ to the list too.” read more

David Lynch concert review by Bob Gannon

April 6, 2009

Fan concert report

The concert was very good, very diverse artists. Ringo’s set was :

It Don’t Come Easy
Boys
Yellow Submarine
(Ringo backed up with Eddie Vedder and Ben Harper and his band)

The songs had new background sets as well and they looked great. A lot of beatles’ images and Liverpool related sights being show behind Paul.

For "Cosmically Conscious", a film from India of the boys was shown. Really great stuff. As usual Paul had a lot of banter with the crowd. Towards the end, he looked down at one of the people in the $100,000.00 seat and said "Yes, you can have my pick at the end. You can stop waving that sign at me, you’re going to get it". And sure enough, at the end of the show, Paul leaned over and gave him the pick.

Former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr performed at the “Change Begins Within” concert on Saturday in New York.

Half a Beatles reunion, or some approximation of it, took place Saturday night at “Change Begins Within,” a benefit concert at Radio City Music Hall for the David Lynch Foundation. Paul McCartney was headlining; Ringo Starr was also on the bill, and yes, after letting the anticipation build, the two surviving Beatles did perform together, as they did in 2002 for a memorial after the death of George Harrison.
