Paul McCartney And Ringo Starr May Have Another Collaboration In The Works

Monday, April 08, 2024

Only two members of The Beatles remain, as both Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are not only still around, but they continue to write and record music and even tour. According to an exciting new announcement made by one of their children, the two musicians may have a new collaboration in the works–or at least, they’re slated to appear on the same project as one another.

Zak Starkey, Starr’s son and a drummer, took to Instagram to reveal he has a new charity musical effort in process. He shared some of the details about a forthcoming project, including confirming–or so it seems–that both his father and McCartney are involved.

Starkey revealed that he has recorded a cover of “Children of the Revolution” by the rock band T. Rex, and this is an all-star affair. The reworking reportedly features vocals by Axl Rose, Duff McKagan recorded the bass, and his own father played the drums. The forthcoming cover of “Children of the Revolution” was then sent to Elton John, who added piano to the tune. Slash recorded the guitar on the song.
