McCartney Wants Ringo Knighted and Says Lennon Finalized Beatles Split

06/20/2011
.
(Gibson) Earlier this month, British TV personality Bruce Forsyth was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. Sir Paul McCartney reckons someone else should have gotten the honor first: his former Beatles bandmate, Ringo Starr.

"Yeah, well, don't look at me," Macca told Absolute Radio's Geoff Lloyd, when asked why the Fab Four drummer hadn't made the cut. Lloyd wondered whether McCartney could ask the Queen, himself. "The last time I went by she was out," Sir Paul quipped. "Otherwise I would have popped in and said, 'Look, love, Sir Richard Starkey.' Because I do think it's about time, but she probably was a bit busy with Sir Brucie."

The conversation then veered, inevitably, to The Beatles. McCartney stated that, even though he announced The Beatles were breaking up in 1970, the decision to make the break permanent was not his own. "Basically me, George and Ringo said, 'Does this have to be final? Could we do a couple of gigs or can we think about this tomorrow?' But John was off with Yoko and he was saying, 'No, no, it's great, I feel a release' and all that. So that was kind of final." more on this story
