The only surviving Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, have decided its time to get the band back together and plan on writing new tunes. And when we say “band” we just mean the two of them, since, well… you know why.
Starr was the one to announce the duo’s reunion on social media, captioning a photo of the two with “Thanks for coming over and playing Great bass. I love you man peace and love.” This isn’t exactly the first time the two have linked up since Yoko broke up the band, and they’ve even collaborated on tracks like “Walk With You” and “Peace Dream,” a track on Ringo’s 2010 release titled Y Not.

Starr’s brother-in-law, and guitarist for the Eagles, Joe Walsh, is also said to be involved in the collaboration, as he was also in studio jamming with Paul and Ringo.
Reportedly, Starr is working on a follow-up to 2015’s Postcards From Paradise with a currently unnamed album. Starr delved into a bit of his creative process when speaking to Rolling Stone in 2016, saying:
“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…And then I call writers in and say, ‘Let’s write something to that!’”
One has to wonder whether the duo will tour with whatever band they assemble, and if holograms of their departed mates will make their way into live shows — should they tour.
