I might be wrong, but I presume that is not your real name. Did you take it after "I am the Greatest"?

For those of you who don't know what is that, it is a song written by John Lennon and performed by Ringo Starr.

Billy Shears

lol, no it's not my real name, unfortunately. Yes, I did take it after Ringo's nickname, but actually, I got it off of the Beatles song, "A Little Help From my Friends." Yeah, it's in "I Am the Greatest," and probably mentioned in a bunch of other songs too. I'm a Beatle fanatic. :cool:

hehehe, Beatle fan also, not as much as you ,obviously :cool: , I never noticed it was in another song, hehehe.

So from what I understood, that was Ringo's name in Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band?

not that big of a fan... but classic rock rules and the beatles were right behind elvis when it comes down to revolutionizing rock and roll. at the end of sgt. pepper lonely hearts club band, one of the lines is something like...
"so let me introduce to you, the one and only billy shears, and sgt. pepper's lonely hearts club band" then they break into with a little help from my friends.
