The Beatles' Sir Paul McCartney And Ringo Starr Unite On New Album


Sir Paul sings two tracks on Ringo's latest effort...

The Beatles' Ringo Starr and Sir Paul McCartney have joined forces on the drummer's new album 'Y Not'.

Macca sings vocals on two of the album's tracks – 'Peace Dream' and 'Walk With Me' – and Ringo reckons the songs are all the better for it.

Ringo enthused: "Paul was doing the Grammys, so he came over to the house and was playing bass on 'Peace Dream'.

"I played him this other track and Paul said, 'Give me the headphones. Give me a pair of cans'. And he went to the mic and he just invented that part where he follows on my vocal. That was all Paul McCartney, and there could be nothing better."

Of the second track 'Walk With Me', according to The Guardian Ringo added: "It makes the song like a conversation between us, and that was Paul's idea to do his part one beat behind me. That's why he's a gen-i-us and an incredible bass player."

'Y Not', Ringo's 15th studio album, is set for release in January 2010 and also features contributions from Joss Stone, Joe Walsh, Van Dyke Parks and Richard Marx.

So, why don`t they collaborate for a Tour? I know that they cannot be The Beatles without George and John, but why not call it: "The McCartney-Starr, or Starr-McCartney", or even "Friends of Old" Tour! Amit Kshirsagar 1125 Morehead Ct. Ann Arbor, MI 48103

When I go to Cuba this winter I will send a postcard to Paul. It is very good that Ringo and Paul makes those songs together. Peace is very important.
