Ringo spoke about teaming up with McCartney to tackle "Grow Old With Me"; one of John Lennon's final songs -- and most tender ballads for his upcoming album,What's My Name due out on October 25th: "It’s the best. I love playing with him. We played a lot together in 'that band' and he’s still in the most melodic player. He’s still incredible, for me, I feel the emotion when (he) plays. I had no idea about this song I bumped into (Lennon's Double Fantasy producer)Jack (Douglas) this year and he says, 'Did you ever hear the cassette?' I said, 'What cassette?' He said, 'Of John doing the songs! Doing the demos in Bermuda!' I love the song. It’s very romantic and so it’s probably, I’m guessing, written for John and Yoko (Ono)."
During a John Lennon tribute album in the mid-90s, Mary Chapin Carpenter contributed her tender version of this song which you can hear below. See which version you prefer.
