Paul McCartney elects the 3 best drummers of all time
“I go Ringo Top, he is something else, second i’d go Bonzo and third Keith Moon. I mean, that’s mine, i’m going from that generation, those are pretty good drummers.
Paul McCartney released his new album “McCartney III”. The musician recorded the album all alone during quarantine, playing all the instruments. The record is a “sequel” to McCartney and McCartney II, created only by the 78-year-old musician at critical moments in his life, in the 1970s and 1980s, when he was looking for a creative renaissance.
“I was living lockdown life on my farm with my family and I would go to my studio every day. So i had to do a little bit of work on some film music and that turned into the opening track. Then when it was done, I thought, What will I do next? I had some stuff I’d worked on over the years. But sometimes time would run out and it would be left half-finished. So I started thinking about what I had.”
“Each day I’d start recording with the instrument I wrote the song on and then gradually layer it all up. It was a lot of fun. It was about making music for yourself rather than making music that has to do a job. So, I just did stuff I fancied doing. I had no idea this would end up as an album.”
