New Music – Ringo Starr

As he heads towards the ripe old age of 70 later this year Ringo Starr has elected to issue a new solo album (his 15th by jove!), well solo is perhaps the wrong term as though it is obviously not The Beatles it does feature many a guest performer. and why not.

Sounds like a good name for an album.

As to whether it is any good well the answer to that is not a case of black or white but lies in the ear of the beholder.

Ringo Starr grabbed a little help from his friends for his new album Y Not, due February 2010. The Beatles drummer will be joined by his Fab Four bandmate Paul McCartney on a couple of tracks, including first single “Walk With You,” which finds Macca and Starr sharing vocals. Other guests and songwriters on Y Not, Ringo’s first album since 2008’s Liverpool 8, include Joe Walsh, Joss Stone, Van Dyke Parks, Ben Harper and Richard Marx.

Talking about working with his old Beatles mate, Starr said in a press release, “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 mike and he just invented that part where he follows on my vocal. That was all Paul McCartney, and there could be nothing better.”

“Who’s Your Daddy” (with Joss Stone) – Ringo Starr.
