The two surviving members of The Beatles met up at Ringo's home studio in Los Angeles on Sunday (19Feb17), with the drummer, 76, posting a picture of himself and his former bandmate on Twitter.

"Thanks for coming over man and playing Great bass. I love you man peace and love," he captioned the image.

The last time the pair recorded together was for Ringo's 2010 album Y Not, and the percussionist's representative confirmed to Billboard magazine that Paul, 74, was in the studio to contribute to a forthcoming Ringo record.

Also joining The Beatles legends in the studio were veteran rocker Joe Walsh, 69, a member of Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band, and the drummer's longtime sound engineer Bruce Sugar.

Both posed for snaps with Ringo and Paul, who is currently working on his next album, a follow up to his 2013 record New.

The Beatles stars also reunited last year (16) to promote Ron Howard's documentary, The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years.
