I'd be more interested in the 5 pages.

C'mon Ringo – write that book!a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

(chanting) Write that book! Write that book! Write that book!

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I'd much rather read a book by Ringo, but I suppose it's unlikely. He's not much of a songwriter, so if he thinks his music is better than his prose I think we could probably go without.

Is there any decent Bios of Ringo

I learnt that postmen in the 1960s and 70s were very honest people. If I was delivering those postcards to Ringo's house I'd have nicked the lot a-hard-days-night-ringo-6


 

I bet some were nicked. Postmen have daughters and girlfriends. a-hard-days-night-john-6

You can count me among those who would really like to know more about him – I just don't know how much there is. Even listening to him speak, I get the impression that he was very content to play his drums with his best mates and stay away from the limelight / madness that was everything else going on.

Thoughts?


 

Thats probably true. I don't think there are any deep dark secrets - I just want to see things from his point of view.

We now have a thread where we are gathering questions we would like to ask Ringo.

So I thought folks might like to read through this thread.
