RINGO STARR

Former BEATLES drummer RINGO STARR was shocked when the band were called ‘traitors’ by people in their native city of Liverpool, England.

The group provoked outrage in the 1960s when they decided to quit their hometown and move down south to London.

Starr has defended the move, insisting they had to leave in order to find work, but the 67-year-old was upset by the reaction of his fellow Liverpudlians.

He says, "We only left because we had to go where the jobs were, and in those days it was London." Now you can live in Liverpool, Leicester… it doesn’t matter but at the time people were shouting ‘traitors, you left us’. But we never let Liverpool down and we’re always still proud of our heritage."
