Ringo Starr talks about performing with Paul McCartney
The bond that The Beatles shared with each other is unparalleled. And two only Beatles remaining alive today have maintained it to this day. Ringo Starr recently talked about how it is like to perform live alongside Paul McCartney, and there are few things he enjoys more!
Ringo Starr loves performing alongside Paul McCartney
While talking to The Irish News, Ringo Starr revealed performing live with Paul McCartney is always a “joyous” experience. The two have shared a stage twice in the past few years, with Starr complementing McCartney:
I love that, getting up with him. We did it at the O2 in England [in 2018]. And then he called me and he said, ‘I’m doing Dodger Stadium if you want to do a few numbers’. So he picked three numbers, and I got up and went down there. And it’s magic for the audience as well as us. I love playing with him.
Furthermore, the audience plays a massive role whenever the two are on the stage together. After all, seeing Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr perform together is a dream come true for millions! Starr added:
The audience is like, ‘Oh, there’s two of them! Wow’. It lifts everything, in a joyous way. So, yeah, I had a great time.
Their friendship over the years
Moreover, Starr also talked about his friendship with Paul McCartney, saying the two always hang out with each other whenever they’re in the same country and in town:
We’re still pals. We don’t hang out with each other a lot. But if we’re in the same country, and if we’re in the same town we always have a dinner, and we say hi or he comes over here or I go over to his house.
And the collaborations between McCartney and Starr are not over. McCartney recently released a solo album named McCartney III, the third solo album from a series of three, and Ringo released a single named Here’s To The Night. This single is to be a part of Starr’s upcoming EP called Zoom In, set for release on March 19, 2021. It will include contributions from McCartney, Dave Grohl, and Finneas as well.
And to top it off, we may soon be getting our hands on Peter Jackson’s documentary on The Beatles too, named Get Back. So, if you’re a Beatles fan, buckle up. There’s a lot coming your way!
