"That's why I like it. If it moves me, it's the sentiment of the record and how he says it. But no one else can say it like that. ... We met him in the '60s in New York.

You couldn't do a list without mentioning Bob."

"Taylor Swift. I love Taylor Swift, that's just how I am," Starr said. "I love her. ... And you know you can't doubt the Black-Eyed Peas, that's pretty powerful. But there's hundreds of bands out there. You really can't, I can't hear them all. I didn't [hear] all the acts in the '60s or the '50s, you know, you have to listen to what you listen to."
