Ringo(81) lives in America and has said a few derogatory things about Liverpool.
Paul, the polished one, but his love for Liverpool is obvious and genuine. If he can do Liverpool a good turn then he does, if he can mention it in interviews then he does.
Looking at it from a local pov we have had, and still have, two of the biggest commodities the world has ever known. The Beatles and football, both a gigantic part of our economy. Being a fan of both it's extraordinary how many people I've met from every country in the world who are here purely because of these two things. I sincerely wish I could still add shipping and seafaring to that.
Chinese people were the ones who made me smile most. The last time was in the Grapes, where they were having a Beatle day, lots of Chinese people there who couldn't speak a word of English but sang along, word for word, with every Beatle song.
