John Lennon’s “Grow Old With Me” is a highlight a Ringo Starr’s new album, What’s My Name.

Paul McCartney plays bass for song.

The song features string backing that originated with one of George Harrison’s compositions.

This version of “Grow Old With Me” is virtually a Beatles reunion.

And the 75% of the Fab Four aren’t the only ones behind this version.

Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh says he is proud to have a contribution to the remade song.

He says he made sure to do his part of the song in the spirit of the mop top legends.

“It sounds just like the Beatles. At first I didn’t know what to do, but I think I really nailed it, and I’m so proud of it. I just thought, ‘What would George do?’ And went with that. It’s a real honor and privilege to be on a song like that,” Walsh says.
