These days, even Beatles get the blues.
Despite good reviews and a decent publicity push, Ringo Starr's latest album, "Liverpool 8" (Capitol), sold only 7,000 copies in its first week of release in January, landing it at No. 94. Its release even managed to generate a bit of controversy for the laid-back Beatle and the equally controversy-averse "Live With Regis and Kelly." (When producers wanted Starr to cut the performance of the title track from 4 minutes, 15 seconds to 2.5minutes, Starr reportedly responded "God bless and goodbye" and walked off the show.)

The festivals tout themselves as being important cultural experiences and irresistibly fun musical escapes: mini-Woodstocks designed to make a community of music fans feel like a part of something larger than themselves.
