  • ♪♪♪ >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY.

  • WE'RE BACK WITH RINGO STARR.

  • YOU KNOW, WE'RE IN THE OFFICE THAT HAS BEEN MADE OUT OF A

  • STORAGE CLOSET IN THE ED SULLIVAN THEATER BUILDING.

  • WE'RE RIGHT ABOVE THE ED SULLIVAN THEATERY, 57 YEARS AGO

  • ON FEBRUARY 9th, YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS WERE PLAYING DOWN THERE.

  • WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER FROM THAT NIGHT?

  • DO YOU REMEMBER ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE ROAR OF THE CROWD?

  • >> YEAH.

  • IT WAS INTERESTING HOW THAT HAPPENED WAS MORE INTERESTING TO

  • ME THAT WE GOT OFF THE PLANE, COMING IN AT HEATHROW FROM

  • DENMARK OR SWEDEN, AND HAD ALL THESE KIDS ON THE ROOF, YOU

  • KNOW, BECAUSE IN EUROPE WE WERE QUITE WELL KNOWN.

  • AND ED SULLIVAN LANDED FROM AMERICA.

  • SO HE DIDN'T KNOW US, AND WE'D NEVER HEARD OF HIM.

  • ANYWAY, BUT HE BOOKED US FROM THAT HEATHROW AIRPORT SHOT.

  • AND WHEN WE GOT TO AMERICA, WE WERE A BIT WORRIED BECAUSE, YOU

  • KNOW, NOT A LOT OF ENGLISH PEOPLE HAVE ACTUALLY MADE IT IN

  • AMERICA, AND WE HAD A COUPLE OF SINGLES OUT THAT NEVER DID

  • ANYTHING, AND GEORGE CAME TO AMERICA, AND SAID, OH, THEY

  • DON'T KNOW US, BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE BEATLES RECORDS.

  • ONCE WE GOT TO AMERICA, THANKS TO THE GREAT DEEJAYs, WE HAD A

  • NUMBER ONE.

  • IT WAS LIKE, WHAT?

  • SO EVERYTHING WAS GREAT.

  • YEAH, IN AMERICA, YOU WON'T UNDERSTAND, I'M ENGLISH, ALL TH

  • PEOPLE I LOVE MUSICALLY ARE FROM AMERICA AND HERE WE ARE.

  • >> Stephen: HAD YOU AND GEORGE EVER BEEN TO THE STATES BEFORE?

  • >> NO, ONLY GEORGE.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT -- I ASKED PAUL McCARTNEY THIS QUESTION

  • WHEN HE WAS ON ABOUT A YEAR AGO, RIGHT BEFORE THE BREAK, RIGHT

  • BEFORE ALL THIS CAME DOWN, AND I ASKED HIM, ASIDE OF WHEN PEOPLE

  • ARE ASKING YOU ABOUT YOUR FELLOW BEATLES, HOW OFTEN DO YOU THINK

  • ABOUT THEM?

  • HOW OFTEN ARE THEY ON YOUR MIND?

  • >> QUITE A BIT.

  • NOT EVERY MOMENT OF MY LIFE.

  • OF COURSE, WE JUST HAD TWO SAD ANNIVERSARIES, GEORGE'S 20 YEARS

  • WHEN WE LOST HIM, GREAT FRIEND OF MINE, JOHN 40 YEARS.

  • FOR GOD'S SAKE.

  • YOU KNOW, THINGS COME AROUND, AND YOU THINK, WHAT A GREAT

  • TIME.

  • YOU THINK OF DAYS THAT THINGS HAPPENED AND HOW WE, YOU KNOW, I

  • ALWAYS SAY I'M AN ONLY CHILD AND SUDDENLY I HAD THREE BROTHERS,

  • AND WE WERE REALLY CLOSE.

  • WE WERE SORT OF PSYCHIC IN THE END.

  • WE KNEW MUSICALLY WHAT WE WERE PLAYING.

  • YOU KNEW IT'S GOING TO MOVE UP HERE OR I WANT IT LEVELEDOUT.

  • WHATEVER THE SINGERS WERE DOING OR PLAYING AT THE TIME, YOU JUST

  • KNEW EACH OTHER SO WELL.

  • AND THE OTHER GREAT THING ABOUT IT WAS THAT, AFTER THE COUNT-IN,

  • THE FOUR OF US, EVERY TIME, GAVE OUR ALL.

  • AND THAT'S A GREAT MEMORY TO HAVE.

  • NOBODY SAID, OH, I'M TIRED OR THIS, THAT AND THE OTHER.

  • WE GAVE IT OUR ALL.

  • >> Stephen: RINGO, WE HAVE TO TAKE A QUICK BREAK.

  • BUT WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE RINGO STARR.
