  • What would the The Beatles be without Ringo?
Ringo walks off `Regis' over song flap
« on: January 23, 2008, 04:56:14 AM »

I was suprised to open Yahoo and see the following headline"Ringo walks off `Regis' over song flap"  so I read on.  I for one am glad Ringo left.  I mean like giving Ringo 30 extra seconds was going to to wreck the whole show.  In fact it made the show worse as they had to quickly cover for the time that he was supposed to be on.  Why couldn't they compromise with Ringo?  Why couldn't they trim some of Regis and Kelly's MEANINGLESS CHATTER to give a real STAR more time.  Regis and Kelly can have their show, what does everyone else think?

Mr. Kite!

I think Ringo deserved an extra thirty seconds.  HE WAS IN THE BEATLES, for God's sake.  Does that mean nothing to you, Regis?!  

Of course Regis always seemed more of the type to know "Something" from the Frank Sinatra version.  

That's what's wrong with all these shows.  They've reduced the airtime to nothing.  Geez, in the 70s you could burn up a whole half hour.  Now it's two and half minutes and head to commercial.  

I hope Ringo does a special with Little Steven or Tom Petty or somebody on XM.  Too bad VH1 stopped doing music.

The same happened to me exactly. I'm still speechless.
He was right. Good for Ringo. He deserves more respect.

An emphatic AMEN!!! Some of us have more than the attention span of a gnat. Actually, that's probably unfair to gnats. I don't know who decided that you were not allowed to broadcast more than 2 soundbites in an entire half hour show without cutting to commercial, but I wish whoever it was would go to a desert island with no electricity and learn to chill out.

I find it quite incredible that they would want to keep the time down. Especially when they have no writers at the moment, you'd think they would want the musicians on for longer! Just to fill the gaps they should have asked Ringo to do a half hour set, culminating in a ten minute version of 'It Don't Come Easy', together with 5 false endings.

Go Ringo! If I were Ringo, I wouldn't go back, even though they said they wouldn't mind him coming back. (Not Saying He Will)

I imagine they wouldn't have asked Paul to cut it short. Good for Ringo.

Granted (overall, anyway!), but Regis isn't Letterman or Leno, either. More like... oh, let's not go there.

All alone here ... but of two minds. I'm guessing the rules of the game were explained ahead of time, and everyone had the chance to say whether they wanted to play or not. Not having seen the show or read about the brew-ha-ha, if Ringo said "I'll be done in 2'30" , then took 3'30", I can see why there would be a problem. Regis ultimately owes his job to the sponsors, and as far as I can tell people in his shoes have ZERO flexibility where that is concerned.

Usually it's the producer who pulls the plug, or starts up the band, when it's commercial time, not the Regis-type. I've never heard a situation on the radio or TV where the host said "Sod the commercial, you can keep on talking/singing/etc.".

Now I'll crawl off to my ostracization booth. *Whimper*

You know people like to be in control. it's like he wanted an extra 30 and because they COULD have given it to him they didn't because they had the power to say no. I've watched their show and seriously it's 15 minutes of them talking about their day, that's what BLOGS ARE FOR! GOODNESS
