Joe Walsh recently talked to Billboard about his contribution to Ringo Starr‘s cover of John Lennon‘s posthumous classic, “Grow Old With Me”.

The song is sort of a Beatles reunion (just go with us on this):

Ringo’s cover of John’s song features Paul McCartney providing vocals/bass, and Jack Douglas’ slight/barely there string-section interpolation of George Harrison‘s “Here Comes the Sun”.

In addition to all of those elements, Joe Walsh had a “what would George do?” moment and did his best to channel the quiet Beatle.
