Ringo Starr’s new ‘Y Not’ album, out on Jan. 12, has help from many friends including Paul McCartney, who plays bass on “Peace Dream”. He also sings with Ringo on the album’s first single, “Walk With You”. Starr says “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. 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 gen-i-us and an incredible bass player.” [examiner.com] http://tweatle.com/s/examiner/ynot2
