Klaus Voormann Gathers Friends For Album

By Paul Cashmere
Thu, 09 Oct 2008 15:09:05 +1100

Klaus Voormann, best known for his history with The Beatles, is recording an album with his old friends such as Ringo Starr and Joe Walsh.

At Popkomm yesterday, Voormann joked about what it would have cost if he had to have paid Ringo to be on his album. “How much would you have to pay to hire Ringo Starr,” he said.

Voormann played bass on many of the old solo Beatles albums. He was on Ringo’s first solo album ‘Sentimental Journey’, he played on John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ and on George Harrison’s ‘All Things Must Pass’.

“Ringo played for free but it cost me $500 for a drum tech to set up his kit,” he laughed.

Voormann is also an artist. He designed the iconic Beatles cover for ‘Revolver’.

Klaus is working on the album with people from his past. Joe Walsh and Paul McCartney have also contributed to the album.
