Interview: Eight Minutes with Ringo Starr

Ringo Starr doesn’t actually like being interviewed. He will cut the interview short if he doesn’t like the line of questioning, which especially includes asking too many Beatles questions. He’s much happier just having a conversation.

His art promotes his all-but trademarked message of — you guessed it — peace and love.
