Back in October 2008, the former Beatle posted a video on his Web site where he said he would no longer sign memorabilia and would throw out any fan mail.
In an interview with Sir Terry Wogan on April 11, Starr revealed he had become aware that fans "were making money out of me.
"I was signing and then they were on eBay the next day," he said on Sir Terry's BBC Radio 2 morning show. "So anyway I just decided, I think I've done my share. That's it."
Now based in Los Angeles, Starr also praised his son Zak Starkey -- himself a drummer with Oasis and the Who – despite early disagreements when his son was growing up. "It was difficult when he was a teenager, because we're both in the same game," Starr admitted. "So we had a few rows over that, but we're friends now."
While refusing to sign autographs, Starr has remained busy otherwise. Earlier this year, he released a solo album 'Y Not,' which featured contributions from former bandmate Sir Paul McCartney. As reported in Spinner, he has also been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
