Billy Squier recalled being informed he’d by no means work once more after refusing an invite to tour with Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band.
He spent 4 years as a member of the previous Beatle’s touring group from 2006. However in a latest interview with radio host Eddie Trunk, Squier defined that he was initially requested to hit the highway a number of years earlier.
“Ringo really requested me to exit with him round 2000, and I didn’t,” Squier stated. “I felt that it was extremely flattering simply to be requested to do it. However I had two little godchildren in my life, and I actually wished to spend the summer season with them. So I thanked him and didn’t do it.”
He famous that “it was fairly fascinating as a result of the man who’d left him at the moment informed my agent, ‘Billy won’t ever work on this trade once more.’ It’s a kind of strains – you go, ‘What? OK, properly, that’s the best way it goes!’ I do know why I’m doing what I’m doing.”
The warning proved to be with out advantage; Starr referred to as Squier again later. “So I stated sure,” he recalled. “I assumed, ‘Yeah, why not? It may very well be enjoyable.’ You understand, they handle you, you play with some nice musicians, you play with a Beatle – how unhealthy can it’s? It was nice – I had a good time. I did a few years with him and that sorta obtained me going once more.”
After leaving the band, Squier wrote and recorded the primary songs he composed in years, though he didn’t formally launch them, posting them on his web site just for a short while. Now that he’s returned to motion with the latest debut of a brand new tune, “Harder on a Woman,” he famous there was a chance that the tracks he laid down in 2009 could also be launched in some unspecified time in the future.
