BBC Newsnight: RINGO EXPLAINS WHY HE IS IN FAVOUR OF BREXIT

By Posted on 0 19

“The people voted and, you know, they have to get on with it,” Ringo says

Ringo has explained why he is in favour of Brexit.

Ringo previously said he made the decision to vote leave in last year’s EU referendum because the EU was a “shambles”. Now, speaking on BBC’s Newsnight, Starr urged the British government to “get on with” Brexit negotiations.

“The people voted and, you know, they have to get on with it,” Ringo said. “Suddenly, it’s like, ‘Oh, well, we don’t like that vote. What do you mean you don’t like that vote? You had the vote, this is what won, let’s get on with it.” Reiterating again how he agreed with Brexit, Ringo added: “But don’t tell Bob Geldof.” He also said: “I think it’s a great move. I think, you know, to be in control of your country is a good move.”


MARK HAMILL HAS A BEATLES MEMORABILIA COLLECTION

By Posted on 0 16

The 65-year-old ‘Star Wars’ legend – who starred in the original trilogy as Luke Skywalker alongside Harrison Ford and the late Carrie Fisher – is constantly approached by fans who want to tell him about their extensive collection of items related to the universe created by George Lucas, with some original toys worth thousands.

Hamill can understand the urge to collect because he has purchased countless items inspired by The Fab Four.

Speaking to British GQ, the actor said: “Basically I started collecting things that I wanted when I was a kid but couldn’t get them so I got all the Monster Model and Kits that I wanted. The Beatles, I never paid any attention to their merchandising except for their records. Of course the minute they broke up, I wanted all that stuff. So I have a pretty nice Beatles memorabilia collection. That was my ‘Star Wars’.”


“HELLO MISS MARY BEE” UNRELEASED GEORGE RECORDING SOLD FOR £14,000.

By Posted on 0 , 10

An unreleased George Harrison recording  sold for £14,000.
The reel-to-reel tape features an Indian-influenced track called Hello Miss Mary Bee, which was written especially for the vendor in early 1968. It was sent to her, along with a six-page letter from Harrison’s wife, Patti Boyd, which was included in the lot, as well as postcards sent by the Beatles guitarist.

A pair of John’s glasses went for £5,600 – cheap compared with the £19,500 a Canadian dentist paid for one of his teeth back in 2011.
A set of autographs gathered by a schoolchild extra on the Magical Mystery Tour film went for £7,000 at the Omega Beatles auction on Monday in Warrington, Cheshire, while the likely first draft of the screenplay for A Hard Day’s Night sold for £2,200.
A certificate of purchase and a receipt for the grave space went under the hammer, along with a miniature bible, dated 1899 and with the name Eleanor Rigby written inside. They were expected to sell for between £2,000 and £4,000.
About 250 items of Beatles memorabilia were up for auction on Monday. A number of other lots failed to sell, including a picture of the band painted by comedians Paul Whitehouse and Charlie Higson.
A handwritten score for Eleanor Rigby, expected to go for at least £20,000, was withdrawn from the auction shortly before it began because of an ownership dispute.
