Ringo Home In Demo Danger

Star power is usually enough to protect a home once lived in by a celebrity from the wrecking ball, but it appears that Ringo Starr power may not be.  Officials in Liverpool have failed to intervene to save the first house the Beatle drummer lived in on Madryn Street from being obliterated. Public outcry saved the brick structure from a similar fate five years ago.  The Daily Mail reports that a notice posted on the building indicates that the demolition contract is already in the works and calls for the building to get leveled in October.  A Liverpool Museum is said to be pressing in negotiations with the city council to get a stay so they can put together a plan to disassemble the structure and rebuild it at the museum.  Ringo previously lobbied for preservation of the house where it now stands, saying an earlier effort to relocate it was something that '...made no sense to me', and continuing, ' only works, as far as I can see' if it remains in its present location.
