The catastrophic fall of the former Beatle was captured on camera. It has been revealed that Ringo Starr fell during a performance in New Mexico earlier this month. The Beatles drummer stumbled when returning to the stage during the band’s encore performance of John Lennon & the Plastic Ono Band’s “Give Peace A Chance” on September 20 at Albuquerque’s Rio Rancho Events Center. After falling, Starr, 83, got up right away and joined his band in the chorus. No injuries were afterwards mentioned in any sources. Following the tumble, which you can watch on TMZ, Starr made a joke about it. Thank you, I fell over just to tell you that. One of the two surviving Beatles, along with Paul McCartney, is Ringo. Lennon, who was 40 at the time of his murder, died of lung cancer in 2001 at the age of 58.
In other news, Julian Lennon has revealed his “love-hate” relationship with the iconic song “Hey Jude” by The Beatles. The artist, who is also the son of the late Beatles legend John Lennon, recently spoke on the Club Random With Bill Maher podcast and discussed the song, which is still among the Fab Four’s biggest successes. I have to confess that I have a love-hate connection with it, according to Julian (via Loudwire). “More than most people living, I’ve probably heard that song and various variations of it. Even my dear friends send me babies in diapers singing “Hey Jude” while strumming guitars, which I really don’t need. Without a doubt, I’m grateful for the music, he continued. However, they don’t seem to realize that [the tune is] a harsh and ominous reminder of what truly occurred. “Dad deserted Mum and I when he walked out, walked away. That was a time of total transformation, total upheaval, total gloom, and total melancholy. Even though I was only 3 years old, I could see that something was amiss. McCartney wrote the 1968 non-album single for Julian concerning his father’s split from his mother, Cynthia, as Julian mentioned in the interview. Following their divorce, John started dating Yoko Ono, whom he later wed in 1969.
