Ringo Starr Taps Friends for "Postcards," Reflects On Music World

Despite a struggling music industry and a less-than-favorable relationship with online streaming music platforms, former Beatle Ringo Starr is still insistent on making new songs.
Starr, 74, released "Postcards From Paradise" this week, his 18th solo studio album featuring 11 original songs by the veteran musician in collaboration with friends such as Peter Frampton and Joe Walsh.
"Even though there's very little record industry left, I like to make records because I write. I write with songwriters; I play with other good musicians," Starr told Reuters, noting "because it's what I do."
"It's very hard for me to find a stranger these days because I've been around a long time."
