The Beatles Through The Years has been one of the leading internet entertainment sites related to the Beatles since its incarnation in 2011, for one simple reason: we focus on the fans. While we do provide the history of The Band, talk about the latest Beatles-related news in our blogs and on the Tea and a Butty Podcast, discuss their albums and movies, and swoon over pictures of the lads, we also highlight the individuals that make up this particular fandom, because Beatles fans are what keeps the legend of the Beatles alive.

Ringo Starr has cancelled one of his All Starr Band shows scheduled for June in Cary, North Carolina after a newly minted Anti-LGBT law in the state.

Speaking in a statement,  Ringo said "I’m sorry to disappoint my fans in the area, but we need to take a stand against this hatred. Spread peace and love." Ringo also said of the legislators: "How sad that they feel this group of people cannot be defended."

Which is true. Ringo joins Bruce Springsteen and Cyndi Lauper in protesting this, who has turned her concert into a rally.

Ringo ended his statement by referencing Canned Heat's 'Let's Work Together' and, oddly, The Beatles' 'All You Need Is Love'
