For those of you who believe Paul is dead and that "Billy Shears" is based off of Billy Campbell, who "replaced Paul after he died", well this is Ringo singing. Billy Shears was Ringo's ego or something

I know what I would do...& yes I could believe. Yes..I do need somebody..sh e knows who she is. In the meantime, I'm getting by with a little help from my friends.

This song is actually quite complex. What initially appears to be an endorsement of friendship is actually a ramble about a lonely man who surrounds himself with friends who just needs someone to love He spends his night alone in his room, masturbating (What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you, but I know its mine), and he goes through life just getting by. Its a lot deeper than most people assume it to be.

On July 7th, Ringo Starr will celebrate his 74th birthday in L.A. As in the past years, he encourages fans around the world to pause at noon local time to share a "peace and love" moment. He's inviting L..A. fans to gather with him at noon PT in front of the Capital Records building.

Jonathan Scott Paperman - That would not have been very Rock N Roll of them now would it? They (John and Paul) fought , because they had different views of the world and different values. They did drugs, because it was a the 60's and they were at the forefront of the culture. Everyone one on the scene back then was experimentin g , because no one knew the down falls yet. Take any these elements away, and the Beatles would have never been as creative as they turned out being.

I wonder what the Beatle's music would sound like if they didn't do drugs and never had fights and was still a full band with Paul, Ringo, George, and John

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

This song is so amazing! The thing of it is..I don't need somebody to love...I just want somebody to love...& who will love me back just the same. Someone who feels the need to love me as much as I feel the need to love them.

Ringo kicks your a**, steals your car, burns your house down, sells your family to the black market, eats the family cat, and frames you in the process. = awesome man we all aspire to be. Real rocknroller. Chuck Norris, eat your heart out.
