Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have reunited in the studio to record music together, news of the event was shared via the Fab Four's drummer on his Twitter account. It's the first time in several years that the former Beatles have worked on music together.
Ringo's post read, "Thanks for coming over man and playing great Great Bass. I love you man peace and love" — see the full Tweet, along with hippy emoticons of peace signs and love hearts below.
The studio session followed just a few days after McCartney, Starr, Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh and Tom Hanks were seen dining together in Santa Monica, California.
Ringo is in the studio, currently working on the follow-up to his 2015 album Postcards From Paradise. McCartney last collaborated on the drummer's 2010 album, Y Not, where he sang on "Walk With You" and played bass on "Peace Dream".
Back in 2016, Starr gave an interview with Rolling Stone in which he discussed working in the studio with artists like Van Dyke Parks, Dave Stewart, Glen Ballard and Richard Marx. "The way I've been working over the last several years is that I do sort of a rhythm-pattern synth track. And then I play drums and go, 'Oh, there's a verse. Oh, that sounds like a chorus,'" Starr said. "And then I call writers in and say, 'Let's write something to that!'"
The two surviving Beatles are both two-time members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, most recently Ringo was inducted back in 2015. So whilst the legacy of one of the Fab Four continues to resonate across the industry, this latest news shows that the spirit of creativity continues to compel two of the most notable artists of all time.
