Most celebrities publish their life stories as books. Ringo Starr is doing his autobiography in the form of a record. Ringo tells Uncut magazine he’s working on an album about his younger days in Liverpool.
“Right now, I’d rather put it quickly in a song, snippets of part of my life. Everybody talks about the Cavern Club, but in this new track, I actually mention the Iron Door, which was a much better club.”
Ringo launches a 27-date European tour in June with his All-Star band.
The other surviving Beatle, Paul McCartney, is about to re-issue a remastered version of his first solo album. The re-issued ‘McCartney’ will feature seven bonus tracks in addition to the original material released in 1970.
It’s being released in June along with ‘McCartney II,’ recorded in 1980, which will include eight bonus songs.
The Who’s Roger Daltrey is taking his show on the road this summer. Tickets go on sale Friday for The Who’s rock opera ‘Tommy, ‘ featuring Daltrey and bandmate Pete Townshend’s younger brother, Simon.
All 15 dates are in the UK. Daltrey performed ‘Tommy’ at a London charity concert earlier this year.
