Sir Paul McCartney has dubbed former Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr "ballsy" for refusing to sign autographs and returning fanmail.
The drummer sparked outrage amongst his supporters last year (08) when he posted a video on the site asking them to stop sending requests for signatures.
But MCCartney insists Starr has earned the right to choose how he spends his time.
The rocker says, "I love him, he's so ballsy. If he doesn't want to spend his day writing to people, he's allowed. I love you Ringo."
