‘It’s not gruelling playing. It’s never been gruelling. I love to play. I love to play with these guys.’
On his stamina, he continued: ‘I didn’t think of it. I was just doing it.
‘Yeah, it’s been a long time … I mean, 34 years with a couple of years’ break because of the pandemic, but it’s what I do.
‘I love to play and I love to play with great musicians and I love to play great songs, and I get all of that from these guys.’
In fact, the Let it Be hitmaker asked for there to be fewer days off in between shows on the tour.
He added: ‘I don’t want to sit in the hotel and relax for three days, I want to get out there and play.
‘That’s just how I am, I just love to do it.
‘With this band it’s great because you know everybody takes the weight.’

Meanwhile, Ringo has a country EP in the works with T-Bone Burnett, one of three he’s working on.
On how he got the 75-year-old Grammy winner involved, he shared: ‘I asked [Burnett] to help us out.
‘[I said] if he’s got any time and wants to do it… Well, he did want to do it, and he sent me, I promise you, one of the most beautiful country songs, tracks, I’ve heard in a long time. It’s very old school country. It’s beautiful. So I thought, “Hey, I’m gonna make a country EP!”‘
One of the other EPs is a collaboration with legendary singer-songwriter Linda Perry, who has penned hits for Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani.
He said: ‘I finished one [EP] just before I started rehearsing.
‘We got to know each other and I love her.
‘She’s just great. She said, “Oh, Ringo, let me do it.”

‘[I said] “OK, do what you do.” The only thing I’ll be doing on that EP is playing drums and singing.’
On his decision to ditch the album format, he added: ‘I get to meet and actually work with people I’ve never worked with, which I’ve always found exciting.
‘I just felt EPs, you could sort of look at it in a serious way and you can do it in a month.
‘An album does take longer, so (EPs are) what I’ve been doing.’
