TMZ caught up with Ringo Starr and Joe Walsh coming out of dinner in southern California. They asked Ringo the imaginary question: If The Beatles and Justin Bieber were both touring together in their prime, who would open the show. You know what Ringo's answer is, so in essence he's saying The Beatles are bigger than Justin Bieber.
I do remember when John Lennon had to defend a quote in a newspaper interview, taken out of context, declaring the Beatles bigger than Jesus. He got in a lot of trouble for that. I think Ringo will be OK though.
I've been in radio since 1981, starting on Cape Cod, and in Boston, Massachusetts where I grew up. (when The Sox and Patriots both broke everyone's hearts, and the Celtics ruled. Funny how things change.)
After 3 years in Las Vegas in the late 80's, early 90's I was looking for work and luckily found myself here in Cleveland in 1991, through some mutual radio friends. I got to play the hits as Jammin 92's Night guy until 1999.
After watching my former company screw up the "Jammin' Oldies" thing for a couple of years, I settled in at what would eventually become iheartmedia, and iHeartradio, playing people's classic favorites... the best decision I ever made!
