Paul McCartney & Ringo Starr Reunite On Grammy Stage
Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, the two surviving members of The Beatles, joined one another on stage to perform at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.
Paul McCartney & Ringo Starr's Grammy Performance
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ debut in the United States, McCartney and Starr paired up to perform “Queenie Eye” – a song off McCartney’s 2013 album New. For the performance, Starr took his place at the drums, while McCartney sang from the piano. Adding to the Beatles nostalgia was a dancing Yoko Ono in the audience.
Starr also performed solo at the 2014 Grammys, taking on “Photograph” from his self-titled 1973 album. In keeping with the theme of the song, the screen behind the stage featured a slideshow of black and white snapshots. The pictures were among those Starr had taken over his years with the Beatles, which he compiled into a limited edition book he released in November of last year.
McCartney and Starr will be meeting up again in the near future to tape The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles, which aims to discuss the Beatles performance on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964.
