Ringo Starr has paid tribute to the late Rolling Stones' drummer Charlie Watts, who died last month aged 80 surrounded by his friends and family.

'He was a beautiful human being,' Ringo said of his fellow drummer as he recalled their days of wild partying together in the 70s.  

Speaking to promote his new EP Change The World, Ringo said: 'Charlie was a great guy and a lot of fun and he had a harder band than I did to keep together.'
Looking back fondly on one memorable night with Charlie and Led Zeppelin's John Bonham, Ringo said: 'I had a party in the 70s and I had a drum kit up in the attic.

'Charlie came and so did John Bonham and so we’ve got three drummers just hanging out and Bonham got on the kit.
 'But because it wasn’t like when you’re on stage and you nail them down so they’re steady it was just there. So, as he was playing, the bass drum was hopping away from him.'

Ringo then described how he and Charlie held the bass drum down onto the floor as John played, affectionately adding: 'We will miss Charlie. He was a beautiful human being... He was like The Quiet Man.'
Ringo shows no signs of slowing down his career and is set to release a new EP on Friday.
He recorded the tracks in his at-home studio Roccabella West alongside his many talented friends.  

Ringo shared: 'I've been saying I only want to release EPs at this point and this is the next one.

'What a blessing it's been during this year to have a studio here at home and be able to collaborate with so many great musicians, some I've worked with before and some new friends.'
The lead single Let's Change The World is an optimistic track that features backing vocals from Amy Keys, Zelma Davis, Billy Valentine and Darryl Phinnessee.
 Another of the tracks, Just That Way, sees Ringo join forces with the likes of Tony Chen and Zho Davis.

Coming Undone represents Ringo's first collaboration with Linda Perry, who wrote the new track having penned hundreds of other hits - including Christina Aguilera's Beautiful.

The final track on the EP sees Ringo once again join forces with guitarist Joe Walsh to cover the classic 50s track Rock Around The Clock.
Ringo also revealed the details of the upcoming documentary by Peter Jackson: The Beatles: Get Back, which is slated for release in November.  

Peter Jackson's new documentary came into being when Apple discovered 56 hours of unused footage from Michael Lindsay-Hogg's 1970s documentary on the band: Let It Be, which centres around their final performance together on a London rooftop.

Gushing about the upcoming documentary, Ring joked: 'I love it because I’m in it, of course. So, six hours is never long enough.
'Everyone will enjoy it because you see this band work really hard and went through emotional ups and downs to get to where we got, every time.
'But, that’s just how it was. Four guys in a room.... You’re going to have a few ups and downs.'
