Ringo Starr is in the process of writing a semi-autobiographical record, he has revealed.

The Beatles' drummer insisted that he'd rather write about his life through music than in a book, telling NME's sister title Uncut: "I am actually making a record about Liverpool. It's about me and Liverpool. It's like I've decided to do mini-autobiographies, instead of writing a book, I'm doing it on record."

He added: "I have been offered autobiographies but they only really wanna know about is those eight years in The Beatles and there would be three volumes before I even got to that.



"Right now, I'd rather put it quickly in a song, snippets of part of my life. Everybody talks about the Cavern Club, but in this new track, I actually mention the Iron Door, which was a much better club, it was more of a real rock club."

Starr didn't say when he was planning to release the new songs.

The sticksman will be embarking on a 27-date European tour with his All Star Band, which hits the UK in June.
