In the years after the break up of The Beatles, it seems like stories about them are still far from being irrelevant. Any music anecdotes, funny moments, or even the terrible ones are still just as amusing as it was when they were still the fab four.

A likely scenario happened between Howard Stern in his interview with the Beatle drummer Ringo Starr. As the interview progressed, Starr was keen to open up more about the quartet’s lives in the 60s, most especially when it comes to songwriting. When asked by Stern on who’s the better listener among the two (John Lennon and Paul McCartney) and the one who’s open to suggestions, Starr immediately responded:

“You know we have to thank Paul for the amounts of music we put out, ‘cause he’s the workaholic,” Starr told Stern. If the time has come to go back to studio sessions, McCartney would inform the other boys then to go back to work. The drummer agreed that Macca was indeed the motivating force of the band.

Starr also addressed the issue of “rivalry” between the two spearheads of British Invasion: The Beatles and Rolling Stones. “I think that was just press,” Ringo said. For what he knows, the Stones and Beatles work hand-in-hand to provide songs that might be useful to one another, all while having fun at the same time.
