Washington, March 7 : He might be one of the members of the Fab Four, but Ringo Starr wants to be recognised for the work he did without the Beatles.
The Photograph singer said that he is fed up of the praise he receives for being part of the legendary British group.
The 67-year-old said that he hates that he is continuously referred to as a member of the Beatles, and wishes people would put less stress on his time in the famous band and concentrate on his whole career as a drummer, singer and songwriter.
"Some days I'm just fed up with The Beatles," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
"I think that when when I die, the message on my tombstone will be 'Ex-Beatle'. Like I've done nothing else," he added.
