Ringo Starr Writing With Toto's Steve Lukather For New Album
Ringo Starr has been tapping All Starr Band guitarist and Toto co-founder Steve Lukather to help on his new album due out possibly in the next few months. Lukather has been posting Twitter updates regarding his work with Ringo, and on Tuesday (March 4th) wrote: "Finished a great tune with @ringostarrmusic we wrote together. SO much fun!! Thx Boss!" In addition to his All Starr Band duties Lukather, along with his and Ringo’s buddy Peter Frampton, was part of Ringo’s backing band during CBS' recent Grammy Awards telecast and The Grammy Salute To The Beatles special.
 
Steve Lukather is no stranger to hanging with former members of the Beatles, having played guitar on Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson's 1982 "The Girl Is Mine" smash, before appearing in McCartney's 1984 box office flop Give My Regards To Broad Street. Lukather went on to become a good friend of George Harrison's during the '90s.
 
Lukather recalled to us an early-'90s jam session between him, Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Jim Keltner, and Bob Dylan: "I played 'I Want To Tell You,' and I was playing the piano part on the guitar, and George was like -- 'How are you doing that?' (Laughs) And it just cracked me up -- I'm showing him (laughs) his own song. And that was just like one of the most fondest memories of my life."
