In an exclusive newspaper interview with the Toronto Sun, Ringo Starr pledged his support to his former bandmate, Sir Paul:
"I talked to him three weeks ago and I just said, 'I'm here if you need me.' That's all you can be. The British press are relentless. You would like them to stay out, but I'm afraid if you want them (initially), then they're going to stay in. I talk to Barbara (Ringo's wife Barbara Bach) in England every day and it's getting ugly. Break ups are always hard and they have to deal with it, not me."
What is Ringo's secret to marital success?
"I'd like to say it was all down to me -- but that's not true. Nothing has changed in our life. I fell in love with that woman in 1980 and I was blessed that she loves me and that's why we've got 25 years."
Ringo also supports the McCartney's stance against Canada's seal hunt:
"Yeah, s--t, why are you bashing those poor baby seals on the head for someone to wear a fur coat? Give me a break. I'm a vegetarian too, so it's easy for me."
