'Don't bother rebuilding my house brick by brick so you can still say I was born there'

RINGO Starr has a message for campaigners fighting to save his old home from the bulldozers: "Don't bother."

The Beatles drummer says he "does not see the sense" in preserving his former home in Liverpool's Welsh Streets.


Ringo was born in a terraced house in Madryn Street, Toxteth, which is in the middle of a demolition zone.


Liverpool council plans to take down the property brick by brick to keep it for future generations.

But Ringo has dismissed the idea. He said in a TV interview: "Now they are knocking it down brick by brick because they are going to build flats there or high-rise or something, I don't know.


"They are going to put it somewhere else and I do not see the sense of putting it anywhere else, because you are going to have to put a plaque on whatever they build saying 'Ringo Starr was born here'. Well, not really."


Ringo then said he had never thought about buying the Madryn Street house.


He added: "Actually, Admiral Grove was the house I grew up in. I was in that house [Madryn Street] for four years, but it is the one that everyone likes."



Liverpool's housing chief Cllr Flo Clucas has now offered to meet Ringo to explain the council's thinking.

Earlier this year, Ringo spoke out against plans to transform Merseyside's housing market by demolishing thousands of crumbling homes and replacing them with brand- new property.

Atleast he is real about it and not selfish. He could instead, sell each brick for charity...

He was on the Frank Skinner show saying all this. He seemed very dis-enchanted with the idea.

He said, 'How can they call it the place where I was born if it has been moved?'
