Russell Brand to interview Ringo for Sirius XM
NEW YORK (AP) - January 19, 2012 (WPVI) -- British actor-comedian Russell Brand will interview former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr for Sirius XM Radio.
"Town Hall With Ringo Starr" will air live from Los Angeles on Jan. 30.
Music producer Don Was will moderate the Q&A, and Starr will perform at the event.
A day later, Starr will release his 17th solo album, "Ringo 2012."
Brand said in a statement Thursday that he's a "massive fan" of Starr, "but like most people I am ignorant as to his life before he rose to prominence with 'Thomas the Tank Engine.'"
Added Brand: "Now we can unravel the enigma of Ringo."
Past "Town Hall" specials have featured Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Coldplay and members of Nirvana.
