Ringo Starr's quotes

  • I'd like to end up sort of unforgettable.
  • I don't like talking. It's how I'm built. Some people gab all day and some play it smogo. I don't mind talking or smiling, it's just I don't do it very much. I haven't got a smiling face or a talking mouth.
  • [on is marriage to Maureen Cox [aka Maureen Starkey] She's just sort of ordinary, she's from Liverpool. And the genuine fans wrote in saying, you know, "If you are going with her, good luck and I hope you're happy.".
  • I remember the day [son Zak Starkey] was born. It was the first time I'd felt totally useless. There was [Maureen Starkey] having our baby. She kept on crying "Help!" and I kept asking "How?".
  • I think the most exciting thing is that you expect people our age to know the music, but actually a lot of kids know the music, and if anything is left, we have left really good music, and that's the important part, not the mop-tops or whatever.
  • I never studied anything, really. I didn't study the drums. I joined bands and made all the mistakes onstage.
  • We were the first generation that didn't go into the army. I missed the call up by, like, 10 months, and so we were allowed, as these teenagers, not to be regimented and turn into these musicians.
  • I'm probably the best rock 'n' roll drummer on earth. I say that now because I used to be embarrassed to speak up for myself.
  • My stepdad was great, he taught me about Sarah Vaughan, Billy Eckstine, people like that. I learnt all the music I had from Bill Haley in 1954, Frankie Laine and on.
  • [2011] When I started, there was rock, there was pop, there was country. That was about all. And now it's divided into 30 categories. Now I don't know one from the other.
  • The '70s wasn't bad. I thought the '80s was all synthesised, even the drums, and there were weird people playing the drums.
  • We've known Bob [Bob Dylan] since the early '60s and if he's playing L.A., I go and see him. It's just one of those things. He is a giant in my mind.
  • I don't want to go back anywhere. I want to deal with what's in front of me now to the best of my abilities, and sometimes that's not very good. But a lot of the days it is really great.
  • I love the modern technology now. I was a little opposed to it - "Oh, in my day, we used to have a donkey turning the wheel, and two guys chewing tape to make it soft.".
  • [on downloading individual songs] It's a different time, and I'm afraid to say that's what I do. If you made a record, I'd probably pick out tracks that I like and download that. That's just how it is. We have to go with that because it's changed.
  • Peace and love, peace and love. It's up to you. I'm always doing it.
  • [on filming Let It Be (1970)] The police came to stop us, and I was on the roof: "Come on, drag me off!". It would be so dramatic, and the damn cop wouldn't drag me off!
  • [2012] I've been asked to write an autobiography of myself, but they really only want those eight years. And I say, "But there are 10 volumes before we get to that, and 20 afterwards.".
  • When we came out, we were this big crazy pop band with these weird haircuts - which weren't really that weird. But that is what they said. We got lucky.
  • Everything the government touches turns to crap.
  • When I tell people my influences, they are surprised Buddy Rich is not one of them. They ask me, What about Buddy Rich? And I say, Well, what about him? He doesn't turn me on.
  • [If you're a good musician] you're probably also a good cook. Because your senses are open and that creativity carries over into every part of life.
  • [I invented] the craze of taking pictures of food. I really did. I was first. I love Instagram, but I've got loads of pictures of plates of food and empty chairs going back to the 1960s and '70s. You can tell a whole story from them.
  • When I was a teenager, I thought that everybody at 60 should be shot because they're useless. And when I got to 40 my mother said, 'I don't suppose you feel like that anymore, son.' I was well pissed of with being 40! But after that, you just go with it.
