MPL/Mary McCartneyPaul McCartney was a guest on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show Tuesday night to promote his new single, “Hope for the Future,” but he briefly addressed his former Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr‘s impending honor from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

It was announced earlier in the day that Ringo will receive the Award for Musical Excellence during the Rock Hall’s 2015 induction ceremony. He’s already been enshrined in the Rock Hall as a member of The Beatles.

When The Daily Show host Jon Stewart asked McCartney if he’ll attend the ceremony next April in Cleveland, he replied, “I definitely am. I’m really excited.”

Some of their chit-chat centered on “Hope for the Future,” which McCartney wrote for the video game Destiny. Stewart noted that video game franchises can rake in more money than movies; the musician quipped, “That’s what was pointed out by the people who asked me. ‘Why don’t you do this, Paul? It’s bigger than anything.'”

Sir Paul admitted that he’s not very good at video games, but he scored points with his grandkids with his contribution to Destiny.

McCartney’s scheduled to appear on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night.
