Former Beatle Ringo Starr has instructed his fans not to request his autograph.
The drummer said he will no longer sign memorabilia and will throw away fan mail.
In a video message posted on his website, he ranted: “I want to tell you please... do not send fan mail to any address that you have.
“Nothing will be signed after October 20. If that is the date on the envelope, it’s gonna be tossed.
“I’m warning you with peace and love I have too much to do. So no more fan mail, thank you, thank you, and no objects to be signed. Nothing.
“Anyway, peace and love, peace and love,” the 68-year-old said.
Starr, wearing dark glasses, said it was “a serious message to everybody watching”.
The performer angered locals in Liverpool when he told Jonathan Ross on his BBC1 chat show in January that he missed nothing about the city.
A shrubbery sculpture of the music legend outside a railway station in the city was later beheaded by vandals.
Starr currently divides his time between homes in Los Angeles, the South of France and Surrey.
He released his latest album, Liverpool 8, earlier this year.
