During his conversation with the magazine, Ringo also discussed the secret of his youthful appearance: ‘Broccoli with everything and blueberries in the morning’ and revealed that he had not left his house for eleven weeks during the closing.

The news comes after Sir Paul admitted that he felt “sick and angry” at persistent racial tensions as he reflected on The Beatles’ refusal to play a show to a separate audience in 1964.

The music icon, 77, took to Twitter to pass the story, complaining of George Floyd’s tragic death after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes.

In a long statement, he said, “As we continue to see protests and demonstrations around the world, I know many of us want to know what we can do to help.

“None of us have all the answers and there is no quick fix, but we need change. We must all work together to overcome racism in any form. We need to learn more, listen more, talk more, educate ourselves and above all take action. ‘

He explained what had happened to the iconic group and continued, “In 1964, The Beatles would play Jacksonville in the US and we found out it would be for a separate audience. It felt wrong.
