Ringo Starr's praises McCartney
Ringo Starr has praised Sir Paul McCartney as a "genius" for improving his forthcoming solo album.
The former Beatles drummer was delighted when his old bandmate agreed to appear on two tracks, 'Peace Dream', and 'Walk With You', on his new LP 'Y Not' and is amazed at the ideas the singer-and-bassist came up with.
Ringo explained: "Paul was doing the Grammys, so he came over to the house and was playing bass on 'Peace Dream'.
So 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.
"He makes it bigger and he makes it fuller. 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 genius and an incredible bass player."
Ringo is also delighted by the response he got from his son, former Oasis and The Who drummer Zak Starkey.
He added to LP33.tv: "I just played it for my son Zak. And Zak was so great. He said, 'Dad, it's great. This rocks! You should have been doing this forever. 'It's nice coming from your boy, especially since he's a really good drummer."Posted on 11 Jan 2010 07:30 to category : Music News
