Fans to Ringo: We're Looking Through You

4/4/2009 4:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rock 'n' roll rule #1: Drummers get no love.

The Beatles: Click to watch!
Ringo Starr got a painful reminder of that outside Radio City Musical Hall on Friday night. It was near silence for Ringo's exit, and just a few minutes later -- Beatlemania-revisited for Paul McCartney's.

The two living Beatles were rehearsing for tonight's benefit concert where, guess who, is the headliner.

Ringo is a great guy, heart of gold, a great drummer for progressive rock and roll and the only reason McCartney is more a draw with fans is because, well, Ringo needs to lose the beard. Chicks dig some scruff, but Ringo also has such a great sense of humor and ability to communicate! So lose the beard for a while and form a new band with McCartney, create totally new tunes, new band name, three other band mates (like Harrison did with Petty, Dylan and Orbison) and the path shall be regained.

Probably has to do with the fact that RIngo is a gigantic prick who snubbed his fans.

I interviewed Ringo in 1989 just after he got out of alcohol rehab. What a decent guy he is. Very smart, level-headed and quick witted. What you see is what you get.

McCartney has been acting fake ever since a Hard Day's Night. That pretty boy winking he did in those days masked a ruthless person.

When I interviewed Ringo back then, he and George were feeling some ill will towards Paul for his business dealings.

While my guitar gently weeps for John and George, tomorrow never knows.

Interesting observation PolarBear; I personally think that people 'hide' behide scruffy beards (think the 'new Joaquin' or Keanu.

Everything else is true. He's a gem and if you want a great show, go see Ringo and His All Star Band.

Yoko was right about Paul...he was good for writing the "fun, sun, run, gun, won, ton,bun" sing song rhyming nonsense of the beatles...Lennon was the brains and edge, Harrison the Musician, McCartney the village idiot.

Word on the street is Linda was treated badly, she submitted to give a good appearance to it all, but so glad Heather blew the lid off this angry man. He's been lost since his mother died and that was before he joined the Beatles...

There goes Rhyming Simon...thats all he is...John and George brought the sound and lyrics of the Beatles to us...Ringo? Class Clown.

Ringo has no talent. Have you ever heard him try to sing? It's painful. Stay on the drums. If he was the replacement for Pete best, I wonder how bad Pete was.

Elm school, I hope either you are joking or you must be an effin moron. Jonas brothers will never be near the songwriting talent that John & Paul had/have. Every new generation identifies with a Beatles song. Can you say the same about the Jonas Brothers?
