Ringo Starr’s family and close friends will not have their final rites in a Houston cemetery.
Ringo Starr, whose life was marred by drug and alcohol abuse and suicide, died Sunday at the age of 76.
He was buried in a Dallas cemetery, but family and friends in Houston were told Saturday that the funeral would be held at the University of Houston campus in Frisco.
The University of Texas, however, has said it is not planning to bury the singer.
Ringos family has not been informed of the funeral plans, said his daughter, Judy Starr.
Ringolo, the son of famed singer-songwriter and musician, and bassist, Peter Starr, died Monday after suffering from kidney failure.
He was 68.
The cause was complications from kidney disease.
He left behind a wife and two children, who have not yet been identified.
