The Beatles legend and also the long-time drummer of the band, Ringo Starr, has shared a new video on his official YouTube account this week and shared the latest details about his upcoming EP as well as how his days in self-quarantine goes.
This week, Ringo had a recent conversation with Black Pumas Eric Burton and revealed that his next EP named ‘Zoom In’ will be available on March 19, 2021, on every single streaming platform. As you may remember, the first single named ‘Here’s To The Nights’ featuring Eric Burton was released two months ago and has been listened over a half-million fans on YouTube.
In the conversation he had in his home studio named Roccabella West in Los Angeles, he remembered eleven months in the hospital due to his tuberculosis disease that led him to leave the school and compared these tough days to the coronavirus outbreak.
Here is what Ringo Starr said:
“Yeah, I had TB, which in those days meant you spent eleven months in hospital. And we sort of conned our way out so that I could have my fifteenth birthday out of the hospital because I had my fourteenth birthday there. So no, I’m not like, ‘Oh, I’ll be back in the hospital.’
But I can’t even visit hospitals, I hate them. I remember one time Barbara was having a procedure and she was in there getting better afterwards and I’m trying to wake her up—’Come on, let’s go, let’s go!'”
“But there is a fear factor. I don’t dwell on it or live with that fear, but I suppose I’m like everyone else‑we all think if we’re going to get the virus, we’re going to get the death one. I know people, and family members, who had it, and it’s a very small portion where it’s the end, but in my head, that’s where it goes.”
