Ringo Starr on the Beatles' Fame

"Well, who else is there? There's nobody else. You couldn't have 'Elton John Week' -- even though Reg is a very nice lad, when he wants to be. They do Elvis and they do us. Everyone can relate to the Beatles, you know, children who weren't born relate through the music. We always did songs which related to everybody from children to our parents and grandparents. And now we're the parents and my mother is a grandparent and she still relates. I mean, the melody lingers on -- everyone relates to 'Yesterday' and half the people still relate to 'I Am the Walrus.' We were the monsters. There's been a lot of biggies, and very few monsters. That's the difference."
