The duo’s brief time together – which reportedly involved studio sessions with Stevie Wonder and Harry Nilsson – sparked rumours of a Beatles reunion.
Starr is featured in the profile talking about the band turning down “a fortune” to reunite for a concert, which proposed an opening act of a man wrestling a shark.
“We called each other and said no,” Starr said. “We were taking our own roads now.”
The profile had focused on The Beatles: Get Back, the upcoming three-part documentary series due November by director Peter Jackson.
The limited series proposes a different look into the making of the band’s 1970 album Let It Be, which was originally captured in the film of the same name.
Starr is quoted earlier in the profile about his reaction after a private screening of the series. “They put some joy in!” Starr told the writer. “That was always my argument – we were laughing and angry.”
Earlier this week McCartney dispelled long-held rumours about the band’s breakup in a BBC interview, stating that Lennon was responsible for their split.
“I didn’t instigate the split. That was our Johnny,” he said. “This was my band, this was my job, this was my life, so I wanted it to continue.”
