The lights are on
After having tasted the sweet fame that video games can bring in The Beatles: Rock Band, Ringo may be ditching his boring day job as one of the world's greatest drummers for another shot at the big time.
GameSpot UK reports that Starr has trademarked the name "Ringo" for use in "video game software and downloadable computer games via the internet and wireless devices."
While we doubt that we'll see any full-fledged Ringo video games for Ringo Rama – a la Journey's Escape Atari 2600 cart – expect a downloadable Ringo phone app in the future. As a Beatles fan, expect me to buy a Ringo video game or otherwise as soon as I buy the rest of his albums, which is never.
