God I remember that TV special - it was truly dreadful! LOL!
Do you really think that Billy Shears is more associated with Paul McCartney than Ringo Starr though? I mean, Ringo even says "yes my name is Billy Shears, you know it has been for so many years" on I Am The Greatest (although John Lennon wrote it, of course!) And all he wants to do is boogaloo!

Hmmm good points Alan. But, I would say that since Billy Shears was touted as the replacement for Paul McCartney he is always brought up in relation to Paul. Even when you google Billy Shears it's just loads of stuff about Paul.
But really though, this was just a ploy to talk about the Ognir Rrats special!! haha! How great is that video? I mean it's brilliant from start to finish.
Interviewer- "How'd you know it was Ringo?" George- "Ringo always calls collect"
I read the William Shears Campbell story, but at the end of the Sgt. Peppers song Paul introduces you to the one and only Billy Shears and Ringo comes on and sings 'With A Little Help From My Friends...
Ok well I'm gonna just mention that this is the first time I've ever googled Billy Shears. All these years I never thought 'Paul McCartney'.
Friend: My favorite Beatles song is Band On The Run.
Me: It's not a Beatles song.
Friend: Wot! That guy, that guy, Paul McCartney sings it right?
Friend: Alright! That one is my favorite Beatle song.
