Paul and George On Ringo Solo LP

Former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has an all-star lineup on

tap for his upcoming solo album, Vertical Man (June 16). The 13-track

CD features cameos from ex-Beatles cohorts Paul McCartney and

George Harrison, as well as metal giant Ozzy Osbourne,

Beach Boys genius Brian Wilson, Stone Temple

Pilots singer Scott Weiland, Eagles members Timothy

B. Schmit and Joe Walsh, and singer/songwriter/producer Van

Dyke Parks. The album was produced by Mark Hudson

(Aerosmith), and it features a new recording of the Beatles' "Love Me

Do" with Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler on harmonica. Starr was

replaced by a session musician on the Fab Four's original version of the song.

Tyler also shows up -- along with rock singer Alanis Morissette -- on a

cover of Dobie Gray's "Drift Away." Some of the more interesting

combinations on the album -- Starr's 10th solo effort -- are "Mindfield," which

features Morissette, Tyler, Walsh and Weiland, and "La De Da" with McCartney,

Tyler, Walsh and Weiland.
