Did she really say "Brian who" ... ???
In the last paragraph of a post on rec.music.beatles ~
...On the other hand, clueless Heather famously said she knew nothing about the Beatles and cared nothing about them.
On a BBC radio interview someone called in and mentioned Brian Epstein and Heather said, "Brian who?"
Why advertise such spectacular stupidity? Why not have an interest in your husband's past, and knowing about Brian would be part of that.
So Heather has no claim to any fame other than being married to an ex-Beatle and marrying him three decades after their demise. It wouldn't surprise me at all to hear her say something like, "Ringo who?"
One reply to the above post said in part:
To me, I can forgive ignorance to an extent. However it seems to me Heather is more than ignorant . . . she just doesn't care.
John and Yoko claim that Yoko had heard of Ringo . . . but that is because Ringo supposedly means apple in Japanese, so the name stuck in her mind.
