Radiohead drummer Philip Selway sat in with Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band at New York’s Beacon Theatre last night. At the tail end of the former Beatles drummer’s show, Selway emerged to sit behind the kit while Starr fronted his ensemble for the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band classic “With a Little Help from My Friends.” Selway remained on drums as the All-Starr Band moved into the sing-along portion of Plastic Ono Band’s “Give Peace a Chance.” Earlier in the day Starr, Selway and Whoopi Goldberg all participated in a conversation at the SiriusXM Studios.
Starr’s current group features Todd Rundgren, former Santana/Journey keyboardist Gregg Rolie, Toto guitarist Steve Lukather, Mr. Mister bassist Richard Page, multi-instrumentalist Warren Ham and drummer Gregg Bissonette. Their setlists draw from all the members’ projects.
Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band will perform at Newark, NJ’s New Jersey Performing Arts Center band this evening.
