Default RINGO STARR MAKES UP FAB THREE

RINGO STARR MAKES UP FAB THREE

http://www.contactmusic.com/news.nsf...-three_1105198

Ex-Beatles drummer Ringo Starr is set to join his former bandmate Sir Paul McCartney and folk legend Bob Dylan to record new tracks over the summer.



Ringo Starr is set to join Sir Paul McCartney and Bob Dylan to record new tracks over the summer.

The ex-Beatles drummer - real name Richard Starkey - is keen to join his former Fab Four bandmate and the music legend after hearing of their plans to collaborate.

Ringo, 68, has been described as the "perfect middleman" for the two stars due to his long-time friendship and musical relationship with 66-year-old Paul, while he has also previously performed live with Bob, 68.

A source told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "The word is Ringo is likely to play drums on a couple of tracks once Paul and Bob have put some songs together.

"Ringo will be the perfect middleman between Bob and Sir Paul as he knows them both well."

The expected collaboration came about after 'Get Back' singer Paul expressed an interest in working with the 'Blowin' in the Wind' star, who admitted it would be something he would be very "excited" to do.

A source said at the time: "Getting these two together for any length of time is difficult schedule wise but they both want this to work out. The music that comes out of this will be fascinating to hear."

Bob has already collaborated with another Beatle, the late George Harrison.

The pair were both members of supergroup the Traveling Wilburys alongside Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Electric Light Orchestra star Jeff Lynne in the 1980s.

I think it must be speculation as was the Paul/Bob pairing. Guess it'll just be a case of wait and see!

A source tells me that they are going to hold a seance and have--get this--George Harrison's ghost play on a track or two. Alas, my source also told me that John's ghost is not happy with the royalties situation they've proposed and opted out.

I thought it would take a miracle for something like this to happen.

Obviously Paul together with Bob wasn't realistic enough,
this is far more realistic.

Some way of describing Bob and George's collaboration

Zim, I don't think Paul is a "car crash waiting to happen."

It would be fab if the two former Fabs got back to where they once belonged (and wonder if they feel they belong musically together now).

they both have great melodic minds (listen to dylan's ballads) and enormous stature

dylan will provide the coolness that lennon added to paul

Well if this does happen, hopefully it'll at least bring about some interesting results. I dont have any problem with it
