Speaking to Access Hollywood, Starr confirmed that his Beatles bandmate was recovering at home having been discharged from hospital. “I spoke to him in the hospital,” said Starr. “He picked up and said ‘hi.’ He’s doing OK. He was in hospital but now he’s out and getting fit and ready to rock. He’s doing good. I text him and he texts me back. “
