Ringo Starr is not a happy camper right now. The birthplace of the former Beatles drummer is about to be run over by a bulldozer, as the Liverpool City Council has decided that the location has “no historical significance.” OUCH!
According to NME, the house on Madryn Street will join 459 other properties listed for demolition as part of a regeneration project for the area. So why level Starr’s home? I mean, he was a Beatle. Executive member for housing Flo Clucas told the BBC: “Ringo Starr lived in the Madryn Street house for about three months before he moved to Admiral Grove, where he lived for about 20 years.” Ah, now that makes a bit more sense.
She added: “John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s childhood homes were preserved because they spent a significant part of their lives in them. The house on Madryn Street has no historical significance." Sorry Ringo!
