Ringo Starr Home

Ringo Starr's birthplace looks like it may go the way of Jim Hendrix's childhood home. NME has the story:

The house was granted a reprieve two months ago whilst a public consultation was carried out, but now the terraced house in Madryn Street will join a further 459 properties which are to be knocked down for a regeneration project.

Executive member for housing Flo Clucas told BBC News: “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.” "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."
