Ringo Starr Wants to ‘Change the World’
Studying, wearing sunglasses and with a “love and peace” allure, the drummer noted yesterday that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected his 2020 tours and that he continues to do so even now, so he confirms that this year he won’t be giving concerts:
“I will not go out this year but I already have a list for the next tour, they just sent me the itinerary,” the musician participates in a virtual conference with international media including EL INFORMADOR.
Although at the moment he will not be giving presentations, the drummer’s activity will not stop, because on September 24 he will release his new CD entitled “Change the World”. The British musician shares four songs in which he collaborates with musicians such as: Trombone Shorty and Linda Perry.
“We Invited they change The Globalism”, “Just who – which Way“,”at undone“r” rock About The hourThese are the themes that make up this musical modernity, which Ringo talked about: “Linda Perry wrote Coming Undone, which I love. He wanted to have a trombone solo. I thought it would be cool to have a trombone, and I thought of a short trombone. Can’t go wrong, he has a trombone.” in his name.”
For the former Beatles, working on new material always means opening his ears to new possibilities: “There are surprises for me when I’m making an album.” Regarding the aforementioned song, Ringo highlighted Trombone’s role: “It became a trumpet section for him, it was his idea. It works great, it feels so different from what we were going for. It’s a very sad song in its own way, but this section lifts it up.” And it happened thanks to Trombone Shorty.”
Regarding the EP title, The drummer and singer emphasized the little gestures that help us change the world: “Be kind, considerate, be understanding, and enjoy peace.. This is what I love. I live in the United States, but half the world is starving, and half the world is without water. We should have water if we are on this planet, but they drink polluted water. In a few years it will be difficult to breathe due to the pollution in the air. You have to start by being kind to your neighbors, friends, and the people next to you.”

The EP contains classic rock, and is even considered a staple of the genre: “Rock Around the Clock.” in his narration, Ringo has been invited Atmosphere Walsh (guitar player the Eagles and consume star). On the legendary topic, the musician recalls that he was in his childhood when he first heard it, after leaving the hospital, near his birthday: “I remember the moment as if it was yesterday. They decided to let me out on my birthday. We went first to London, then to Liverpool, then To the Isle of Man. It was amazing, we went to see ‘Rock Around the Clock’, the movie.”
Choosing to add the song to his production was fun: “I wanted to do Rock Around the Clock because I can, it’s my EP.” Ringo said the original contribution is the arrangements: “If we listen to the covers of Rock Around the Clock, they all play the same single.”
The musician talks about Charlie Watts, fellow drummer from The rolling stones: “We all miss Charlie, a great human being, the quiet type.” In particular, he recalled Ringo’s 1970s party at which Watts was a guest: “There was Charlie Watts and John Bonham (Led Zeppelin’s drummer). John sat on the drum set, and they were there, and while he played the drums he walked away with each Pulse. Meanwhile Watts stopped him. The photo would have been a hit on TikTok, it was a great shot.”
For the band that catapulted him to world fame, the Beatles, Ringo talked about the upcoming news like the documentary”The the Beatles: Get behind” from run out Jackson: “The documentary was six hours long, and it’s going to be shown in the US in three days (on the Thanksgiving holiday): it’s divided into beginning, middle, and end. I loved it because I’m in it (laughs). Six hours isn’t enough, you can see. How we work hard, with emotional ups and downs.” Ringo said New Zealand director Peter Jackson is still working on the production, a few weeks after its premiere: “He’s bringing back some stuff, and I hope to see it soon. It’s a detailed tuning.”
