Kevin Mazur/WireImage for Rock and Roll Hall of FameSurviving Beatles members Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney have performed together only sporadically since their famous group broke up in 1970, but Starr says he now would love to hit the road with his former band mate. At a recent event in Los Angeles celebrating his 76th birthday, the drummer told Closer Weekly, “I would tour with Paul McCartney tomorrow!”

Having said that Ringo noted, “I’m doing my own tours right now so we’d have to work it out.”

As for how he felt about reaching the ripe old age of 76, Starr quipped, “It would be nice to be 70 again! But you get up in the morning and you try to have the best day you can. And be in the best spirit that you can be!”

Speaking about good spirits, the rock legend is known for encouraging people to spread the message of peace and love around the world, as he did at his public birthday celebration in L.A.

At the event, he told Closer Weekly, “I think it is important with all the violence that there is peace and love! And maybe we can have more as the years go on!”

Starr recently posted a video recap of the celebration, which took place in front of the Capitol Records Tower and featured a variety of celebrity guests, on his official YouTube channel.

Meanwhile, Ringo is scheduled to hit the road with his All Starr Band for a brief tour of the western U.S. in October. The group also will visit Japan and South Korea in the fall.
