There's a fresh Q&A with Ringo on the Vulture website.
You’re 80 years old but have the aura of someone half your age.
I’m 24 in my mind. [Laughs.] I think that helps. I’m sticking with the 24 number.
What’s the most ambitious thing that you have left to do?
It’s funny that you bring that up. Barbara and I were watching something last night and they mentioned how Mount Everest was opening up again for climbers.
Ringo. Do you really want to climb Mount Everest?
We looked at each other and I said, “Uh, I don’t want to climb Everest.” [Laughs.] Everest is not one of the dreams. I can’t really imagine anything at this point. It’s been a great life. As a kid I was a bit dangerous and now these are the results of it. So if I do everything right in my mind, I’m truly grateful. And that’s how I live now.
