Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh said he was delighted with his contribution to “Grow Old With Me,” a John Lennon song that appears on Ringo Starr’s new album, What’s My Name.
The recording also features Paul McCartney on bass, while a string backing is taken from a George Harrison composition, making the song a sort of Beatles reunion.
Walsh – who’s also Starr’s brother-in-law – admitted he was uncertain about how to approach the session. “Oh boy, that was great,” he told in a new interview. “It sounds just like the Beatles. At first I didn’t know what to do, but I think I really nailed it, and I’m so proud of it. I just thought, ‘What would George do?’ And went with that. It’s a real honor and privilege to be on a song like that.”
