Paul McCartney Collaborates With Ringo on New Album
However, the two remaining Beatles members have never lost touch of each other apparently. According to reports, McCartney just recently collaborated with Ringo Starr on his new album. What’s My Name, Starr’s new album features a rendition of John Lennon’s Grow Old With Me. Grow Old WIth Me is one of the last songs composed by John Lennon prior to getting killed in 1980. Subsequently, Starr sang and recorded the drums, while McCartney recorded bass lines and backing vocals for the new track. Additionally, Joe Walsh of The Eagles lent a helping hand to the track.
The Beatles achieved mainstream success during the 1960s and 1970s. The band originally consisted of John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr.
