“It’d be nice to just have everyone singing along.”
The rock legend recently released his 19th studio album, Give Me Love, and revealed fellow ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney popped in to his guesthouse to feature.
Sir Paul was not the only former bandmate to have input into the record as Ringo claimed the “ghost” of George Harrison was there.
Ringo added: “George is always in the room.

“Actually, Paul and I were talking about him when we were both listening to Sgt Pepper’s for the anniversary and saying how important George’s work on guitar was on that record.”
But he added his wife of 37 years, former Bond Girl Barbara Bach, was his main collaborator.
Ringo said: “I am a hopeful romantic, I believe in peace and love. I got a lot of help from Barbara on Show Me The Way.
“I have loved her since 1980. We’ve wiped each other’s tears and we still have bad days but there is always love.”
