Starr home saved from destruction

Beatle's childhood home may become exihibit

The childhood home of Ringo Starr may soon house a major new museum in Liverpool.

Originally scheduled for demolition by the Liverpool City Council, Beatles fans protested the destruction of the drummer’s home, despite the fact that Starr only lived there for three months.

The National Museums of Liverpool are in negotiations to preserve the building, not only because of its relevance to music history, but to make the house part of the Museum of Liverpool, which will open in 2008.

Both John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s former residences are owned by the National Trust heritage group and can be visited as museums by the general public.
