I'd be more interested in the 5 pages.

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

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

(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.

Can buy me love! Please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes
Or buy my paperback/ebook! Riding So High – The Beatles and Drugs

Don't miss The Bowie Bible – now live!

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.

https://www.beatlesbible.com/f…..-of-ringo/

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

Here’s what Ringo had to say about not writing an autobiography during a recent interview.

On your most recent albums, you have written and recorded autobiographical songs – “Liverpool 8,” “Rory and the Hurricanes” and “In Liverpool.” Has this been deliberate and do you plan to continue this in the future?

Yes. I was asked to do my autobiography and I said to myself, “I’m not going to do an autobiography.” Instead, every record will have a song like “Rory” about my early music life… And with this book (“Photograph”), I am showing where I was at the time, who I was with and I then talk about the photos, of course. So that’s another way I’m doing it any way other than writing an autobiography (laughs).

Why not an autobiography?

You have got sit there too long. What was great about “Photographs” is they gave your mind a push – “Oh yeah, I remember that.” I don’t want to sit there thinking, “What happened in 1964 on Tuesday, November 10th. Do you know what I mean? [Note to Ringo: On Tuesday, Nov. 10, 1964, The Beatles performed two evening shows at Colston Hall in Bristol for £850.]

At least we now have Michael Starr’s book.
