The Closest Thing to a Beatles Reunion? Leave It to Ringo!

Tuesday, April 09, 2019

Despite the success of the John Lennon/George Harrison pairing on 1971’s Imagine, the two former Beatles never recorded together again — except for one other time. On March 13, 1973, Lennon, Harrison and Ringo Starr recorded “I’m the Greatest,” a song Lennon started writing in late 1970 but eventually gave to Starr. The tune, the opening track on Starr’s hit 1973 album, Ringo, also features “fifth Beatle” Billy Preston on keyboards, making it tantalizingly close to a late-era Beatles song (Preston played on the Beatles’ final albums, Abbey Road and Let It Be).
