"It was funny. I thought the whole of Liverpool would laugh," Starr tells British magazine Live.
But clearly some folks couldn't find the humor in the former Beatle telling the BBC's Jonathan Ross that he missed "nothing" about his old stomping grounds.

Spinner recently reported that Starr's childhood Liverpool, England home is set to be demolished, but the project has been met with much resistance. Thankfully, not everyone in Liverpool has turned their back on the musician.
