Q: Ringo Starr plays drums on your cover of “Come Together.” Did you just call him up and ask?
A: I left him a message and said, “Hey, Ringo, I’d like you to play a song on my record.” He called me back and said, “I heard you wanted me to enhance a song?” I said, “Yeah, your song!” He did it in one take and made it sound so amazing it didn’t make sense to have both of us on there.
