Ringo who? Wink

There aren't many folks who can be uniquely identified by just one name.

Random Ray Bradbury connection: I saw Ringo's signature on the wall backstage at the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan.

In Weller's new book you'll be able to read about Ray's Ringo story.

No!

Ringo met Ray backstage at a gig in LA. I gather this was sometime in the 70s or 80s.

The signature in Waukegan is from a Ringo gig at the Genesee theatre, from the 90s or 2000s.

They didn't have to buy the book anyway, as Ray's Ringo encounter has been recounted before on this very board!
