Ringo Won't Star on "Regis"

1/22/2008 4:46 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ringo StarrRingo Starr was supposed to appear on "Live with Regis and Kelly" this morning -- but moments before he was scheduled to go live, the ex Beatle walked off the set.

In what's being chalked-up to a miscommunication, Ringo was given only 3 minutes to perform a 4-minute, 15-second song, and chose to hightail it out of there after the show wouldn't give him more time. According to his rep, "Ringo left saying, `God bless and goodbye. We still love Regis."'

Starr's exit followed a day of snubbery in NYC Monday -- where the angry rocker got mad at paps, autograph seekers and fans who wanted to greet the 67-year-old rocker.

Don't balme him one bit. Not enough time for a song THEY want him to preform? What dumba** came up with that decision?

Who cares about Ringo or his music anymore??

Ringo has his 15 mins long ago. He hasn't accomplished anything in 30 years.

Too bad that Ringo turned out to be a jerk in his old age.

This is typical for this show. Gelman is the worst producer. He hasn't learned anything in 20 years. They really need to get rid of him.

I laugh at other's misfortunes    

So let him perform his song in the 4:15 it takes. Surely the show could do with less commercials and more entertainment.

While I am sure he was annoyed, and vocal about it, at the paps (Good for him! Who wouldn't be?) I find it laughable for one to suggest he was rude to his fans. Ringo is pretty well known for being extrmely hospitable to fans. And, there is a huge difference between a professonal autograph seeker and a fan. Your credibiliy is what sets TMZ apart for most the other sites. When you start making things up to make the paps look good or a star bad, then you quickly become The World Weekly News online edition. Will "Space Aliens Running Hillary's Campaign," be next?

Good for Ringo! It's his song, why should he shorten it? All they had to do is shorten their opening monolouge of unfunny jokes and bragging about what they did over the weekend by a minute and a half and let Ringo perform. By the way, he has been performing/touring consistently for the past 35 years.

Poor Ringo even cut out a full minute, they just wouldn't budge on the last 15 sec.
It's not Ringo's fault, he even said it would be cool to fade to a comercial while he was playing, again they said no.

Ringo is not the dancing mokey some of these up and coming stars are.

Ringo: You GO FOR IT! It's about time that creativity and principles won out over the pin head pencil pusher accountants that run network TV. I wish more artists stood up and told these idiots that if it weren't for the artists, there would be NO TV to begin with.
