Paul McCartney's Son

Career Support from Ringo Starr

Ringo Starr hit the legendary Viper Room on the Sunset Strip last night to show his support for an up-and-coming British singer ... a singer who happens to be Paul McCartney's only son.

Turns out, 34-year-old James McCartney is already building one hell of a fan base ... 'cause Eagles rocker Joe Walsh also checked out the performance.

Right before the show, we asked James about his favorite Beatles album ... and his answer was pretty surprising, considering it was a record that his dad has said he was unhappy with at the time of its release.

He sure has his father's face but a little light on the hair. If he even has a fraction of his pop's talent he should be successful. http://www.newaustralianews.com/Paul McCartney/news

I might be tripping right now, but I'm not TOO high to see the REAL meaning in this matter:Desmond does have a barrow in the marketplace(Running up to image, ripping off facade), and his name is none other than A ONE Charles-Corky-Thatcher.

Oooooh!(Thank you, thank you, thank you people, thank you, thank you I'm glad you like the show, yes, thank you very much folks. Goodnight and God bless!)

No offense to Sir Paul or the mighty beatles, but, um, y'aint' famous son, so chill and chat with TMZ for a spell. I love how Ringo blasts the peace sign as if to say: "I'm giving you the peace sign so don't misconstrue my bizarre behavior as if I am walking to the stage at Shea even though there are only three people on the sidewalk." I've watched some of James' videos on the net and just sayin'...kinda creepy!

Everyone (meaning Ringo, etc) are just sucking up because they need/want to curry favor with Paul still. Too bad Julian Lennon didn't get the kiss ass treatment from the media...oh, yeah, his dad was gone and they didn't have to be nice if they didn't want to. Looking and sounding like a living legend (or deceased one in Julian's case) can be a curse and a blessing. Hoping it pans out well for James and the media doesn't turn on him once the bloom is off the rose.

Ringo has gotten a little phobic to crowds and being touched by strangers over the years (can you understand that?) and uses the peace sign like a hex to distance people from him while maintaining he still means well and wants to be a nice guy.

I don't hold it against him.

And as for the jerk who said he was "sucking up" to Paul McCartney, you have no clue just how much Ringo contributed to keeping the Beatles together as long as they were, and since then keeping the surviving family members together as a big, extended family. The other Beatles' kids call him "Uncle Ringo." He has been the heart glue.

With all the lineage and money, you'd think he could wash his hair... maybe get it cut as well. He looks like a wet rat.

jAMES inherited over $40 MILLION from his mother when she died so he's not starving. Yeah, he needs some lesson on personal care,his hair is a mess. If he was some schmuck on Idol he'd probably would be eliminated but because of paul he gets all this press and attention.....
