Demolition Risk Rises For Ringo's Birthplace

The battle to prevent the demolition of the brick home that Beatles drummer Ringo Starr was born in suffered a big setback when the English Heritage Society reportedly decided against designating the residence at 9 Madryn Street in Liverpool as an official English Heritage site. Coming just days after the same body announced that status for the Abbey Road album cover street crossing (story) and months after it declared similar protection of an apartment John Lennon and Yoko Ono had lived in for only a matter of months (story), the decision was denounced as ludicrous by fans of the drummer.  While opting not to apply English Heritage status to the site may not doom the building, it does appear to make demolition a much more likely prospect - and bolster the argument that drummers don't get enough respect.
