There have been several stories this week from Oregon media like these from KATU and the Daily Astorian which discovered that former Beatle Ringo Starr's boat is anchored off the coast of the state. There's been a lot of speculation by Oregon media as to whether Ringo himself is on the boat.
As the Daily Astorian's Chelsea Gorrow wrote, "With a little help from our friends, the buzz moved around Astoria that Ringo Starr was in town, yesterday. But – Help! – I’ve got a feelin’ we need somebody to confirm this."
Well, let us come to the rescue. Ringo Starr is not on that boat. How do we know? We contacted his press representative and were told the former Beatle is currently in Europe and not in Oregon.
And at least on Tuesday, Ringo's attention was focused on the U.N. International Day of Peace, which was celebrated Sept. 21. He issued a statement about the day on his website, "I'd like to thank the U.N. for hosting another peace and love day. I’m full of love and I feel peaceful, I hope you are too."
