Yes, @50yearslate. Taken backstage at the Tower Ballroom, New Brighton, probably on 10 November 1961 at Operation Big Beat when Rory Storm & The Hurricanes were on the same bill (along with three other bands), though it could be from one of their 4 December appearances there.

Correct date for the picture is 24 November 1961, Operation Big Beat II, I missed that date when I was looking at Tower Ballroom dates.

I've been reading back through this thread and came across this post from @trcanberra about whether Ringo had ever been arrested...

Has Ringo ever been arrested because I know that the other 3 have been.  

Yes, but it was a beat-up:

https://kimgordonsrealage.tumblr.com/post/4753165637/ringo-starr-arrested-in-texas-over-restaurant-bill

This was posted on a blog and I think it's fake. Posted on the 19 April 2011, from another blog, I'm wondering why I can't find a single proper news report about this arrest that would've created international headlines.

Given that it's reposted on 19 April from another blog, I'm wondering if that was someone playing with an April Fool's Day post on someone's blog.

So far as I'm concerned, without any official news organisation picking up on it, it's fake news, and Ringo has never been arrested.

Can anyone find a proper source for this rather than a couple of individual's blogs?

RN - I agree with your conclusion. I've never heard about such an incident. Think it's a crock.

Sounds like a joke to me, tbh. in the beatles-memes parts of the 'net, the "no fanmail" thing is joked about a lot.

Yeah, I looked through the post and I can tell from the third paragraph that it's a joke. So no, Ringo has never been arrested.

You can find info on the Beatles that have been arrested here though, if you're curious.

What are the full lyrics in "Pax Um Biscum"?  All the lyric sites just have the "Pax um biscum" and "Peace be with you" parts, and leave everything out(probably because they, like I, do not know Latin).  Does anyone know what the other Latin phrases are?

is Ringo's solo stuff after Goodnight Vienna actually as bad as people make it out to be?

Give it a listen. 

I like the odd song but overall I have next-to-no interest in it, others feel differently. But then I have little interest in what Paul has been putting out for a decade or two whereas some swear it's up there with the best of his career. 

One song I do like from the post-'74 Ringo era is 'Tonight' from 'Bad Boy '.

Choose Love. Y Not. Liverpool 8. Give More Love. Ringo 2012. All excellent albums. I hope you give them a spin.

I personally love Ringo's Rotogravure, Ringo The 4th, Bad Boy , Stop And Smell The Roses, and Old Wave.  Those 5 albums have a certain charm to them despite them being not as popular.  However, my all-time favorite Ringo album is Time Takes Time, which was the album that kicked off the All Starr Band.

Does anyone know when Ringo started doing the whole 'Peace and Love' thing whenever he utters words and why? I presume it's some way of trying to spread the message.

The first time I became aware of it was in the "no more fan mail" video in 2008. Maybe he did start saying it before this though?

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

of days

Interview from 2006, where he doesn't say it:

ab_channel=dih1138

 

He does do the peace signs though. I wonder has it infiltrated his private life, does he end his conversations with "peace and love"?

I wonder if he says it when ordering a pizza or when out shopping and he wants to know where the tins of tomatoes are kept.
