Ringo Starr Walks Off Regis and Kelly.
by Paul Cashmere @ Undercover - January 23 2008
Former Beatle Ringo Starr refused to go on TV for his scheduled appearance on the Regis and Kelly show today, after the show's producer tried to chop his song his half.
Ringo was to perform 'Liverpool 8' from his new album, but was told to cut the performance down to 2 minutes 30 seconds.
Publicist for Ringo Starr, Elizabeth Freund, tried to negotiate a shorter interview but the producer Michael Gelman insisted that the song had to go less than 3 minutes.
Ringo was due to perform the song with Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame, who produced the album.
Stewart criticised the show saying that it was disrespectful to artists, but Ringo said he would be happen to come back onto the show at a later date.
The walk-out was a bonus for designer Michael Kors. Kors was given a longer interview to fill the gap left by Starr.
