Ringo Starr Hates Autographs' Resale, Online

By Devaki

Former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr reveals that he has taken decision to stop signing the autographs for the fans, as he is tired of seeing them appear on the online auction sites.

The rock legend, who turns 70 in July, has also announced the plans to deny the requests for his signature in a 2008 video message. He explains that he is not having the time to deal with the heap of fan letters, he gets.

He says that he has decided to impose the ban, to stop unscrupulous autograph-hunters, who make money from his signatures through such websites.

“I was signing and then they were on the auction sites, the next day. So I just decided, I think I"ve done my share. That"s it," says Starr.
