Former Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunited within the studio previous weekend to work on a track together. And they were joined at Starr’s house recording facility by Eagles icon Joe Walsh for good measure.

It is the first time since 2010 that the Fab 4 rhythm section worked collectively. Their last collaboration was on the tracks “Peace Dream” and “Walk With You” on the drummer’s album Y Not.

Details of McCartney’s contribution to Starr’s upcoming 19th LP haven’t been revealed. However the drummer posted a photo of the pair on Twitter and mentioned: “Thanks for coming over and playing great bass. I love you man peace and love.”

A second image included the comment: “And look Joe W. came out to play what a day I’m having peace and love.”

Producer Bruce Sugar released a photo of himself with the ex Beatles and wrote: “Magical day within the studio with these two.”

Starr reported in 2015 that he had learned to deal with Walsh whereas they collaborated on his 18th album Postcards From Paradise. The drummer said: “I tell Joe, when he’s done a solo, that’s it. He wants to do it, and do it, and do it. That’s how he’s – however I’ve known him long enough to say, ‘No. We’ve got it.’”

Discussing how he had talked Walsh into playing a solo for the title song, Starr joked: “Joe’s a brother-in-law now. He can’t refuse.”

He additionally revealed in the past week that his subsequent record will also feature visitor appearances by the Eagles’ Timothy B Schmit, Richard Page of Mr Mister, Benmont Tench of the Heartbreakers, Nathan East and Amy Keys.

Toto guitarist Steve Lukather said last month that he’d been booked to participate in a Starr tour later this yr – which would suggest that recording is almost complete.
