Ringo: Peter Jackson's documentary will be more joyful, "expressive" than "Let it Be"

Ringo Starr made some intriguing comments regarding director Peter Jackson's upcoming Beatles documentary, which makes use of unused footage from the "Let it Be" project.

"I'm looking with Peter Jackson at all the footage that was never used," Ringo told Sirius XM. "Prior to us doing that, we're all hanging out, and it's a lot of fun, lot of humour, and not like the one that came out."

Speaking of the famous "I'll play if you want me to play" scene between George Harrison and Paul McCartney in "Let it Be," Ringo said the entirety of the sessions weren't as tense as depicted over the years.

"When Michael Lindsay-Hogg put ['Let it Be'] together, which he's in quite a lot, too, they just stuck to those seconds of an argument,"Ringo said. "But there was a lot of joy, and I think Peter will show that ... this one, I think, will be more expressive and more like we were."

Jackson, meanwhile, has said, "after reviewing all the footage and audio that Michael Lindsay-Hogg shot 18 months before they broke up, it's simply an amazing historical treasure-trove. Sure, there's moments of drama - but none of the discord this project has long been associated with.

"Watching John, Paul, George and Ringo work together, creating now-classic songs from scratch, is not only fascinating - it's funny, uplifting and surprisingly intimate."
