Ringo’s little star! Paul McCartney’s stepdaughter, 6, shows the Beatles drummer how to keep the beat in intimate new movies from the next documentary


It was the day Ringo Starr passed away with the help of a little friend – Paul McCartneyhis stepdaughter Heather.

The six-year-old was delighted to receive the drums as The The Beatles January 1969 practiced in the studio.

Footage of the moment appears in a four-minute trailer for the six-hour documentary Get Back, composed of films locked in violence for more than half a century.

Heather, daughter of McCartney’s flamboyant bride Linda, is also seen singing with John Lennon.

The three-part documentary uses material shot for the 1970 film Let It Be and includes The Beatles’ latest live performance together — the rooftop concert at their Apple HQ in Savile Row, London.

It will be shown at Disney + over three days next month.

The latest trailer also offers a rare picture of the band’s first manager Allan Williams in a recording studio with Sir Paul and Lennon.

Mr Williams – better known as ‘the man who gave up the Beatles’ – left the band in 1961 when they were starring.

He is widely regarded as the man who gave the Liverpool band their big break when he took them to Hamburg in 1960 – their first incident on the world stage.

But they fell into an argument over the commission and he stopped working with them before warning eventual Beatles manager Brian Epstein not to touch them “with a barge pole”.

Mr Williams died in 2016 at the age of 86.

The new documentary follows Lennon, Sir Paul, George Harrison and Sir Ringo Starr in their creative process as they write and rehearse and prepare 14 new songs for their first live show in more than two years.

The tracks were originally intended to be released on an accompanying live album.

The producers of the documentary include Sir Paul, Sir Ringo, Lennon’s ex-wife Yoko Ono and Harrison’s ex-wife Olivia.
