I chased Ringo a lot before he announced "he wasn't signing anymore." Nasty guy. I finally gave up. I don't waste my time repeatedly asking for an autograph if they person doesn't sign.

Actually, I ask Elton now just to see him blow up. It's kind of funny. One time he screamed at us and walked into a wall. Everyone laughed at him. Hilarious.2 years ago
