RINGO"S COMMENT ON PAUL/BONO LIVE PERFORMANCE
As for Beatles singer-bassist Paul McCartney opening London Live 8's concert alongside U2 with the Fab Four's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Starr says he liked it -- to a point.
"I saw Paul and Bono being fabulous and I saw four stupid guys in Pepper suits," said Starr of the four-man brass section who were dressed as Beatles lookalikes in the legendary colourful band outfits.
"I thought Paul should have worn the suit and Bono and Bob Geldof should have worn one. Like, real people should have worn them. Then it would have been a real statement. Just to have four silly guys in the back there, I thought was silly."
Starr says he wasn't invited to play drums with McCartney for his Live 8 performance, and didn't really want to discuss whether he would have liked to.
"Well, it's too late now. So let's not talk about the past. I was never asked to do it. I would have only done it, if I'd dressed up in me suit," he jokes. "That would have been a big condition on my part."
