The Beatles White Album – Ringo Starr is auctioning his copy No. 0000001


Jim Breeds… Anyone tempted? 🙂 Ringo Starr is auctioning his copy of the White Album No.0000001…

Yvonne Cleland… I’d be tempted if I had several shedloads of unwanted cash and my own personal vault box.

Alan Esdaile… I thought mine was five hundred and something but I’m way out. My one is number 0412580.

Chris Giles… Id have it if I had loads of money

Colin Norton… Mine is 5343 which is pretty low 🙂

Jim Breeds… I think my number rubbed off, but I wrote it down somewhere before it went completely.

Paul Sleet… Doubt if it sounds any better.

Ralph Town… Why would he want to sell it?? He can,t be a bit short of cash.

Clifford Rose… I wonder who bought that one.

Jim Breeds… He has an auction of loads of stuff, not just this. Bidding starts at $20,000! Highlights from this historic auction include seven of Starr’s stage and studio used drum kits: Starr’s first Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl drum kit used to record some of The Beatles biggest early hits and used by Paul McCartney on his album McCartney; the custom built Jumbo Silver Sparkle kit used in the “Hello, Goodbye” film from 1967; the Ludwig Silver Sparkle kit used on Starr’s inaugural Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band tour; a kit of toms commissioned for Starr by George Harrison; among others. Also included are instruments gifted to Starr by bandmates and friends: a George Harrison Gretsch guitar, John Lennon’s “Beatle Backer,” and a Gibson Les Paul from Marc Bolan.

Chris Giles… He can’t be short of money is he downsizing lol

Peter Fairless… So, there were five number 001s, were there?

Paul McCartney on Ringo Starr’s allegation that he died by World News Daily Report

paul8 – written by Barbara Johnson

Mark Randall… Well. he would say that, wouldn’t he

Mick O’ Dowd… He looks alot older than I remember him as well!

Peter Gladwish… He looks quite good for a corpse!

John Storer… A cursory perusal of this website reveals that it is a poor copy of The Onion, but nowhere near as clever or amusing. Cannot believe anyone thinks get it was genuine.

Gary Kinch… ……and I was abducted by aliens.

Mark Randall…Morphed into our Cilla

Ringo Starr claims Paul McCartney died in 1966

Thanks to Ian McGilvray for finding this.


Leigh Wieland-Boys… It’s 1st March, not 1st April (Fools Day)!

Alan Esdaile… perhaps he’s been spending too much time with his tank engines.

Stephen Kolimbardies… I’ll have a pint of whatever he’s drinking!!!!!!!!!

Eric Harmer… But is that really Ringo ?

Mick O’Dowd… No it isn’t. The Ringo I grew up with didn’t have a beard and looked alot younger!

Colin Norton… I  don’t really think that the World Daily News is a reliable news source 🙂 if Ringo did say this he was probably joking with them.

Eric Harmer… But are you really Mick ?

Terry Pack… I think that all famous people are played by actors. It’s a bit like Doctor Who, in that the actor’s change, but the characters carry on. Keith Richards has been replaced several times, I believe. Paul McCartney’s original actor was a very good musician, but subsequent versions have been lesser talents, as is clear from the decline in quality of the song writing over the years. When a suitable replacement for a famous person can no longer be found, the character ‘dies’, as happens in long-running soap operas. And, occasionally, they can be brought back to life, like Ted Nugent, unfortunately. After the end of The Beatles, each was replaced by less talented people, except for George Harrison’s character, who was then allowed the space to blossom into the excellent songwriter he’d always promised to be. Ringo’s character was no longer furnished with comedy material by McCartney’s replacement (who wasn’t very good at writing songs: even his ditties were weak compared to those of his predecessor), and had to go into television Voice Over work.

Alan Pepper… Ringo wants to change his name to John Smith cos he’s so bitter ha ha

Colin Norton… Terry, I think that I can see a book in your future 🙂

Barry Newton… I thought recent research concluded that drummers are the most intelligent band member. I think it’s back to the drawing board.

Phil Gill… After The Beatles split, Paul and John became Derek & Clive. Fact. It was a well kept secret, that both Peter Cooke and Dudley Moore took to the grave.

Terry Pack… Barry, Actual drummers are more intelligent than anyone, but once The Beatles started making films, the original Ringo was replaced by the actor who had hitherto been playing Lord Snowdon. He was neither a very good drummer nor (as a consequence) very bright. He did make a good job of the transition from Posh Git to Scouse Scally, however, unlike the actress who took over as Princess Margaret at the same time, who proved to be a lush!

Phil Gill… The clues are all over Derek & Clive Live, Tel. “This bloke come up to me an’ said ‘ello, goodbye…”

Barry Newton… Bugger, I thought I had solved the Lord Lucan riddle, Terry.

Peter Millington… Ringo has “lost the plot” Mind you I never really thought he had it in the first place – “RIP Ringo’s brain”

Terry Pack… The actor playing Lord Lucan got the gig as Peter Sarstedt, whose actor had become Peter Wingard. It all happened too quickly to replace Lucan, and so his character was ‘disappeared’ in a hurry, never to be seen again…

Phil Gill… He was also from the West Country, hence Sarstedt referenced the whole incident in his song “Where Do You Go To, Moi Lovely?”

Leigh Wieland-Boys… You boys & your imaginations! Such fun!

Peter Gladwish… When are they coming to take him away, ha,ha?
