TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/25 3:23 AM TO: ROBERT YOUNG (VVSN30A) FROM: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) SUBJECT: ACTING CAREER? Dear Bob, No plans to make another movie. I suppose the part would be too hard for Jack - (Nicholson).....so we'd have to give it to DeNiro. Ringo Starr

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/22 4:52 PM TO: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) FROM: GINA WALTERS (XCMG71A) SUBJECT: ANTHOLOGY Ringo - Are you happy with the way the Beatles anthology video series is working out? Do you have any idea what will be on the 6 CDs that are coming out at the same time as the videos? Will it be mostly previously released songs or stuff that is on bootlegs and "unreleased"? Is it true that you, George, and Paul re-recorded "In Spite of all the Danger" for the anthology? Thanks for taking the time to answer this!!!! -Gina

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/25 3:20 AM TO: GINA WALTERS (XCMG71A) FROM: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) SUBJECT: ANTHOLOGY Dear Gina, Yes, finally. It'll be mostly previously released songs with unreleased takes of some of the tracks. So you might have a different take on "Love Me Do." No, we didn't re-record "In Spite of all the Danger." Ringo Starr

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/13 10:18 AM TO: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) FROM: ALLISON HADEN (TTSM97C) SUBJECT: ARE YOU HAPPY? hi again,ringo. i just wondered if after all you have been through if you are happy. are you comfortable with what a star you are? sincerely, -allison

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/18 4:12 PM TO: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) FROM: MICHAEL PRIEUR (MMVV32A) SUBJECT: AUTOBIOGRAPHY? Mr. Starr, I would like to know if you plan to pen your life? I'd love to hear your stories playing with Carl Perkins, Roy O'berson (sp) (sorry) and etc. Good luck with your tour. Will you be in the Detroit Metro Area? Mike Prieur

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/25 3:20 AM TO: MICHAEL PRIEUR (MMVV32A) FROM: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) SUBJECT: AUTOBIOGRAPHY? Dear Mike, No, no plans to write a book. We're doing great in Detroit....we'll be at Pine Knob. It was a thrill to play with Carl, of course, because I covered a lot of his tracks on the Beatles albums. Roy Orbison we toured with , and he was the hardest act we ever had to follow. Ringo Starr

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/14 10:20 AM TO: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) FROM: PHILIP SPERANZA (GSPV00A) SUBJECT: BACK OFF BOOGALOO Dear Ringo, We all know about your past and I am sure you are tired of answering questions about the Beatles. 1. What is in store for the future fo you? (and us) Are you planning or recording a new album? 2. How did John come up with the nickname Boogaloo for Paul? What encouraged you to write/record Back Off Boogaloo? See you in Atlantic City. I loved the first two tour. It is a pity Eric Carmen declined the invitation. Phil

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/25 2:51 AM TO: PHILIP SPERANZA (GSPV00A) FROM: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) SUBJECT: BACK OFF BOOGALOO Dear Phil, Well, I don't know about it being a nickname for Paul, Marc Bolan from T.Rex inspired me to write that song. We had dinner one night and that's how we spoke-- it was all "Boogaloo" and "back off." I went to bed that night and woke up in the middle of the night with that song in my head, and it took me ten minutes. As for the future, we'll be on tour until the middle of September, then we'll go on holiday. No record plans at the moment. Ringo Starr

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/21 4:14 PM TO: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) FROM: CHRISTINE TRIGILIO (NSJM55A) SUBJECT: BIGGER THAN OJ Hi there Ringo!! How's it going? Instead of asking trade Beatle questions, I would like to know what's in your future career plans, since there is life after making music history. I hope you are doing well! P.S. You are my favorite Beatle, I thought that might be pleasant to know. With admiration, Chris

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/25 3:12 AM TO: CHRISTINE TRIGILIO (NSJM55A) FROM: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) SUBJECT: BIGGER THAN OJ Dear Chris, Well, every time we come to do this tour, I say this is the last one.

I'm a huge Beatles and Ringo, Paul, George, and John fan. I saw you back in '89 in Sacramento, Ca and you were great. It was great to hear Yellow Submarine and It Don't Come Easy live. Here is my ??. I hope you don't mind. If John had been alive these past 15 years do you think that the four of you may have got together at some point and have you wanted to all these years? Thanks. You are a class act and I can't wait to see you in San Diego, Ca this summer. Jim Dickinson in San Diego, Ca. PS I'm listening to a Beatles CD as I type. Take care Ringo.

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/14 10:41 AM TO: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) FROM: MICHAEL MERICAN (BVMB18A) SUBJECT: PROUDEST MOMENT? Dear Ringo: First, we are all very sorry about the death of your first wife. I have been a Beatles Fan since 1970 when I was five years old. I would ask my older brothers to put on Let It Be or "The Talking Album" as I would put it. I never thought I would be able to ask a Beatle any questions so I will just ask two. 1) What was your proudest moment as a Beatle? and 2) Did you ever say to yourself when you were making the music, "This music will last forever?" Thank you very much for everything!!!! Mike

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/25 3:08 AM TO: MICHAEL MERICAN (BVMB18A) FROM: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) SUBJECT: PROUDEST MOMENT? Dear Mike, I don't think at the beginning you think like that. You're just busy working, busy doing it, busy having fun, you know. Proudest moment....it's very hard. You could pick The Palladium, you could pick Shea, you could pick "Rubber Soul" or "Pepper"...you know, it was such a fabulous time. Ringo Starr

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/17 4:07 PM TO: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) FROM: SHAUN PITTMAN (VNHX06C) SUBJECT: ROCK 'N' ROLL MUSIC Dear Ringo, I'm a seventeen year old guitar player and bigtime Beatlemanic. I just want to ask what was it like to be in a band that changed rock 'n' roll music in America forever? Also what was it like to work with such musical genius such as Paul McCartney and John Lennon?(no offense intended) Forever a Beatles Fan, Shaun Pittman

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/16 10:07 AM TO: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) FROM: MATT CHERRY (DJNP51C) SUBJECT: THOUGHTS ON DRUMMING Dear Mr. Starkey, I am by far the biggest Beatle fan around and definitely one of your biggest fans. I always admired your drumming techniques and I believe that you truly are the greatest rock and roll drummer there is. It is because of that that I always wondered why you never did more than 1 drum solo on any of the Beatles' songs. Your solo on "The End" is a classic! Well, don't pass me by:) and write me back if you get the chance. I look forward to reading your reply. Yours truly, Matt Cherry

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/12 1:42 AM TO: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) FROM: DALE HUNT (XTWJ41A) SUBJECT: WORKING W/JOE WALSH? Dear Sir: It is indeed an honor and a privilege writing to you. I enjoyed greatly the first "ALL-STARR" tour on video and album, as well as your solo work and the Beatles tunes. My question is short and simple: do you have any plans to work with Joe Walsh anytime in the foreseeable future? I think you two have done some great work in the past, but I didn't know what the status might be of any further work with the Beatles and Eagles working together again themselves. Take care, Sir. Dale Hunt Greensboro, NC

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/25 2:59 AM TO: DALE HUNT (XTWJ41A) FROM: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) SUBJECT: WORKING W/JOE WALSH? Dear Dale, Yes. Of course you know the Eagles got back together, but I'm sure that Joe will be popping up from time to time on this new Ringo Starr All Star Tour. Ringo Starr

TOPIC: RINGO STARR TIME: 05/25 3:08 AM TO: BOB RODRICK JR (BKMN71D) FROM: RINGO STARR (ROCK99F) SUBJECT: MUSIC THRU THE YEARS Dear Bob, The music that I first loved was Little Richard, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry....all those old rockers, that's where I came in. Today, I'd like to listen to something that lasted longer than a year, personally. Ringo Starr

Well, there's just too many influences, from childhood-- from Gene Autrey to John Lee Hooker, you know? Tips...you've just got to get out there and play. Ringo Starr
