Here’s Dave Stewart and Ringo Starr at this afternoon’s press conference. We had to get there early to get decent seats which meant listening to their single ‘Liverpool 8’ several times during our half hour wait. Then we heard it again live at the evening’s People’s Launch. Now I can’t get it out of my head. La la la, la la la la etc.
The usual questions about whether Ringo & Paul would ever get back together to perform – answer: No. Repeated several times. They’re still friends though and ‘hang out’ together.
He’s delighted to be involved in this launch of Liverpool’s Capital of Culture Year. He says Liverpool will always be in his soul.
