    Default Ringo Starr should be ashamed

    Just seen this arrogant ***** on Johnaton Ross with not a good word to say about this city, if this is the case why did the knob come to the opening, i'll tell you why cause he was the least liked beatle and no one realy cares less about him, and to boot his performance was ****e and his new songs. He should not be welcomed to take any further part in this celebration with his fake yankee accent.

    Rather harsh.
    He admits he's been away from Liverpool for 40 years, and doesn't recognise most places, which is a fair comment.
    I've lived in Liverpool for 40 years, but wasn't born here and have a 'fake' Scouse accent, like Ringo has a 'fake' American accent.
    They're a combination of where you spent your early years and then where you spent your later years.

    well he didn't do to well at promoting the city did he, when i saw paul mccartney on jules holland on new years eve he seemed like someone who was still in love with the city, totally diferent to how ringo came across and come on you can't deny that he comes across as smug and arrogant

    "Smug and arrogant" (in a lovable Scouse way) was what the Beatles were all about, and, apart from the music, made them stand out from the other groups.

    I had no intention of watching this - and didn't - but I was going to post earlier this evening about how bad he is as an "ambassador" and even point out this programme and how I reckoned he would very likely only be talking about his new single and himself generally (was I right ?) and not very entertainingly either. The American drawl in his voice is really, really aggravating too. Could barely watch him on BBC2's Culture Show interview last week.

    I wonder if there's a bit of a movement occurring here with a once-sacrosanct Liverpudlian showing his true colours and everyone back in the 'pool with truer colours now wanting his like out of the way. The Beatles are awesome but they're also something of a cultural roadblock. Am I wrong ? Is it time for the luckiest drummer in history to sod off back to the place he now chooses to call home and leave us alone ?

    Never liked him

    When he said " John had an airport named after him, I will have to wait till I die "

    Pity he never mentioned his supposed good friend George, who still has nothing named after him. ( I still live in hope that George may get a bus stop with his name one day, but dont hold your breath )

    Ringo is a let down

    Get Gerry Marsden on

    Red face

    I could never understand why they dragged him out of retirement to come back to Liverpool in the first place. Hes not been back here for 20 years not like hes short of a few bob to fly over is it.

    What does annoy me with Ringo and Paul is why do they still do that V peace sign when they are getting their photos taken???

    Its like Pavloves dogs when they hear a bell they know its food when either of these 2 see a camera its the V sign.

    Im sure there were more suitable people who they could have had to open the 08 celebrations other than Ringo?

    I know hes not to everyone taste but what about Ken Dodd at least hes never left Liverpool and his accent is definatly scouse .

    Ahhh.. Yankee Accent.. Don't think so mate.. Doesn't sound Yank AT ALL.. I can attest to that. Sounds British to me.. maybe not Scouse..but, definitely British...

    And as for what Lainey says about the PEACE sign.. Nothing wrong with the PEACE sign mate.. Its' a 60's thing, that should NEVER DIE.. Better than the Devil sign that I see some kids using during concerts...

    As for Ringo himself.. GOOD on him for making something out of his life.. and well, sorry.. HE Doesn't have a good singing voice.. But, never the less.. I think you should all be thankful for a well known icon from your City..If people didn't like him .. then a 10,000 seat arena.. wouldn't be filled..
    Heres to all the great Liverpool musicians.. past, present and future.. May the new ones FIND THEIR VOICE and make new names for the NEXT millineum..

    Without a doubt, I go along with Naked lilac. Ringo is getting on in years but he is still [Rockin' - Good on him - I have actually met him and take it from me ,,,,, he doesn't have a yankee or mid-atlantic accent.

    Ross: "What do you miss about Liverpool Ringo?"
    Ringo: "Nothing"

    The Mancs are loving it on their forums.

    well if he doesn't have this accent i must have been watching someone else last nite and who cares if you have met him. Last nite he came across as a complete arse hole.

    "Liverpool I left you
    ...but I never let you down."

    Well you did last night lad.

    I've been the biggest defender of Ringo
    over the last week, but he can f&%k off
    after last night.

    TRAITOR!

    Nah, it was all tongue in cheek. Ringo's alright, he just can't sing thats all. Jonathan Ross brings out the worst in anyone.

    Think someone asked John if he thought
    Ringo was the best drummer in the world,

    John's reply was, "He's not even the best drummer
    in The Beatles."

    He's had a playing field named after him in Dingle Vale (see Beatles around the city thread). What more does he want.

    You're wrong there Chris.
    Ross set him up there to praise the city,
    and when Ringo started being negative,
    Ross's eyes lit up, he started laughing,
    the audience started laughing and it was
    a case of "let's all laugh at Liverpool"

    In all honesty, I've avoided everything that Ringo has been involved in over the last couple of weeks, including JRoss, who I always watch.

    Now then, does Phil Redmond have the balls to now sack Ringo from all his CoC duty ? The publicity would be huge but IMO it should be done, even if Paul then decided to back out of his comittments. It's pretty clear that Ringo is only in this for himself and his own personal gain and has mentally cut all ties with the city now. His "Liverpool 8" single is just utterly, utterly abyssmally bad and had any other act in the world taken it to any record publisher in the world there would have been no chance of it getting released anywhere, let alone here. Ringo is evidently still riding the talent wave of the three people who saved his life; viewed alone, he has very little to offer and what little he has is nothing special. In all honesty his greatest triumph was Thomas the Tank Engine but Michael Angelis later blew him off the tracks anyway.
