“He’s my brother-in-law and he wants to involve me in making music, and what am I gonna say? No? I’m really, really, really blessed to…be in this family that I’m in that came along with my wife…and I still get in the studio and I’ll be playing guitar and I’ll look over and go, ‘That’s f***ing Ringo Starr! I don’t believe it!’ It still happens sometimes.”
In addition to “We’re On The Road Again” Walsh also plays on the track “Electricity” from Starr’s Give Me Love, which comes out September 15. Other guests on the album include Peter Frampton, the Eagles’ Timothy B. Schmit, Richard Page, Benmont Tench from Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers, Richard Marx, Don Was and others.
Starr will be taking the current All-Starr Band back on the road this fall, while Walsh has a pair of shows with the Eagles as well as a three-night run in Las Vegas and his VetsAid benefit concert on September 20 in Fairfax, Va.
