Ringo Starr- new album out January 2010

According to one source and others, former Beatle Ringo Starr should have a new studio album out early next year. The album, entitled Y Not, will be released on January 12, 2010 according to Amazon.com. The arrival of this album is very fast since Starr's last album was 2008's Liverpool 8. One article I've read is concerned whether fans will buy it or not due to Starr's recent status. About a year ago, Ringo left a video on his web site in which he simply stated he wouldn't accept any more fan mail. Ringo had been known to be very friendly to the fans but when this happened, some fans were left scratching their heads.
I hate to say it but statistics show that of all the Beatles, Ringo's career has been the least successful. The peak of his career was his 1973 album, Ringo. I thought Liverpool 8 was a fine album. The album was enjoyable but Ringo's long time producer, Mark Hudson, walked out. Apparently, the two had a falling out or just stopped due to creative differences. No matter what, Ringo Starr has a special place in the hearts of every Beatles fan. Don't worry, Ringo. We'll buy your next album!
