Vandals Attack Starr Tribute
Angry vandals have attacked a tribute to Ringo Starr in his hometown after the Beatles legend made disparaging remarks about the city of Liverpool, England, in a TV interview. The drummer appeared on a British chat show last month (jan08) and told host Jonathan Ross there was "nothing" he missed about the area since leaving to pursue his music career. And his comments have angered people in the city, who are fiercely proud of the area's link to the Beatles, with vandals defacing a tribute to Starr at his former school. A sign at a playground, named Starr Fields in his honour, was daubed with spray paint - with the 67-year-old's face blanked out and the word "traitor" scrawled next to it.
