While making the rounds in an effort to promote his latest studio release Ringo 2012, Ringo Starr said that he is hoping for a Rolling Stones tour sometime this year for their 50th anniversary.
"I only advise everybody to get out there and play and I hope the Rolling Stones pull it together and I hope Keith and Mick pull it together and stop squabbling and get out there and do it," Starr said in an interview with AOL's Spinner.com.
"I hope they put it together and I hope they do a world tour," he continued. "We all should be out there. If we can play, we should be out there playing, and that's the deal. My new attitude is 'as long as I can hold the sticks, I can play.' And you may have noticed that in the last several years, I'm playing live more and more. I'm putting records out more and more. Let's keep playing!"
"That's how it is. Our new hero is B.B. King. I say, 'Look at B.B. King. He's 86, but he's still playing. He might be sitting down, but hey, I'm sitting down already' [laughs]. I was talking to Billy Squier yesterday and I said, 'Bill, just get out there and play. This is what we do.'"
