Beatles’ Ringo Starr tells fans to stop writing to him

'I've got too much to do' says drummer in online video

The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has ordered his fans to stop sending him fanmail.

The drummer says he’s got “too much to do” and warns he’ll throw any fanmail in the bin after October 20 in a video posted on his website.

“This is a serious message to everybody watching,” Starr says in the clip.

“I want to tell you that after the 20th of October please do not send any fanmail to any address you have. If that is the date on the envelope, it’s gonna be tossed.

“I’m warning you with peace and love, I have too much to do. So no more fanmail. Thank you. No more objects to be signed. Nothing.”

It’s not clear whether the wealth of fanmail was trigger by ‘Brush With Greatness’, the 1991 episode of ‘The Simpsons’ Starr appeared in where he vows to answer every bit of post he recieved from fans, including answering Marge Simpson‘s question that “Yes, in England we do have French Fries, but we call them chips!”
