More Ringo business

- An observation: If you've been reading news stories about Ringo's current tour and/or his 70th birthday, then you've been saturated with references to "With a Little Help from My Friends" (e.g., "Ringo celebrates birthday with a little...."). It quickly gets nettlesome. I wouldn't have minded more allusions to Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends and Shining Time Station. Who could deny that Ringo was in his element on those shows?

- Ringo has stated that he will not be authoring an autobiography.

- Ringo's gold-plated Ludwig snare drum will be on display the rest of the year at the Met.

- Finally, "Ringo Starr: The rime of the ancient yellow submariner."
