Ya’ll, this is your last warning: STOP SENDING CRAP TO RINGO STARR!!! The ex-Beatle has just announced that any fan mail he receives postmarked after October 20th, 2008 will be thrown in the trash because he has “too much to do.”

On his personal website, Ringo warns: “This is a serious message to everyone watching my update. Peace and love. Peace and love.I want to tell you after the 20th of October please do not send fan mail to any address you have. Nothing will be signed after the 20th of October.If that is the date on the envelope, it’s going to be tossed. I’m warning you with peace and love. I have too much to do. So no more fan mail. Thank you, thank you. And no objects to be signed. Nothing. Anyway, peace and love, peace and love.”

Did you know that each year, 100 million trees are used to produce junk mail and that 250,000 homes could be heated with just one day’s supply of unwanted mail? So give the man a break and stop chopping down trees for Ringo. And also: peace and love, peace and love, peace and love!

    I wish he had said “It’s going to be recycled…” instead of “It’s going to be tossed..”

    When I heard “Liverpool 8″ for the first time I knew that burning sensation in my throat was my meal coming back up, and to think this musical mediocrity has the gall to be conceited? Instead of throwing the emails he gets from fans in the trashcan why doesn’t Ringo throw that abomination of an album “Liverpool 8″ in the trashcan first?

    while i admire his honesty, and the kind way he tried to say peace and love while saying something negative. i have to say, its called a form letter, someone could do it for you ringo. and you wont piss off touchy fans. personally i dont have a problem with him anyway.
