Ringo Starr Auctions His Memorabilia

There's a trend towards downsizing when we get older. You get rid of a lot of things you really don't need.

Imagine you're legendary drummer Ringo Starr? Imagine getting your hands on some of his memorabilia?

You had your chance this week as Ringo auctioned off over 800 pieces he accumulated over his five decades in the music business. The auction took place in Beverly Hills, California and ran from December 2 through today.

Here's a look at some of the merchandise you could have bought...if the price is right!

The auction is expected to raise millions of dollars...all which will go to charity. I think Ringo is now my favorite Beatle.

 

This is a piece I wrote about Ringo on his birthday in 2013.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
