Ringo Starr Quotes
On Drink and Drugs: "I hope the fans will take up meditation instead of drugs."
"That's all drugs and alcohol do, they cut off your emotions in the end."
On Religion: "There's a woman in the United States who predicted the plane we were traveling on would crash. Now, a lot of people would like to think we were scared into saying a prayer. What we did actually--we drank."
"America: It's like Britain, only with buttons."
