Ringo Starr has signed a new worldwide publishing deal with that there BMG, covering his solo catalogue and the songs he wrote for The Beatles. Whoever they are.

“I love making music and the song writing process – and putting new music out there to play alongside the old”, says Starr. “How great to be working with BMG who are excited to have my entire catalogue. When I was thirteen, I only wanted to be a drummer”.

Well, that’s good to know, isn’t it? BMG CEO Hartwig Masuch adds: “Ringo Starr is a contemporary artist with an incredible history, and BMG is exceptionally proud that he has chosen us to represent his past and future songs”.

Providing more substance than you’d expect from one of these deal brag quotes, BMG US President, Repertoire & Marketing Zach Katz then chips in: “From New York, Nashville and Los Angeles to our offices around the world, we are all in, globally committed, and eager to show [Starr] what a multimedia music company can do, across the board, when you have the right creative tools to put your music to work”.

Which reminds me, I need to have my annual look at Ringo Starr’s Microsoft Paint art.
