Ringo to Paul: 'Don't Pass Me By!'

Published: 2005-07-12
Ex-Beatle Ringo Starr is angry that former bandmate Paul McCartney did not invite him to play at the London edition of Live 8. "I was never asked to do it, he didn't ask me. It's too late nowóit's disappointing," Starr commented recently. "But I would have only done it if I'd been able to wear my Sgt. Pepper suit."

McCartney opened the London show with "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band" alongside Irish rock legend U2, and closed the show with such Beatles' hits as "Get Back," "Drive My Car," and "Hey Jude." Starr last performed with McCartney at the 2002 commemorative tribute concert for ex-Beatle George Harrison.

Beatles album sales have soared since the Live 8 concert, with Michael Jackson benefiting the most as owner of some of the Beatles' catalogue.
