“What’s My Name,” the new single from Ringo Starr’s newest album, his 20th, also named “What’s My Name,” sounds like a Beatles song from back in the day. Rock n’ roll. Joyous and fun to listen to. It’s smart but not too complicated– a masterful mix of the best of everything: writing, producing, engineering, voices, musicians et al. Even the video is top o’ the line: artistic, visually exciting.
Colin Hay, former Men At Work lead singer, who has toured in Ringo’s All Starr Band four times, wrote “What’s My Name” years ago. When Ringo heard, he loved it.
Released last month, the album features guests Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Edgar Winter and former members of Ringo’s All Starr Band. It also includes a version of “Grow Old With Me,” which John Lennon wrote for Yoko Ono and recorded as a demo on what’s now known as the “Bermuda Tapes.”
In addition to the album, Ringo recently published his third book, “Another Day In The Life,” sharing never before seen photographs and personal memories.
