Newly knighted Ringo Starr says he remembers ’k all about the nineteen sixties, let alone who the bands were back then.
“Never heard of him,” he replied when asked whether it had been a long wait to catch up with Paul McCartney in the Honours stakes.
Sir Ringo described his knighthood ceremony as ‘surreal’.
“I went down on one knee and asked the Duke if he’d marry me. Then somebody spoke and I went into a dream.”
Mr Starr then gave reporters the V sign and, with a small amount of assistance from close acquaintances, the seventy-seven year old was helped back into his daffodil-coloured submersible living accommodation and was gone.
