Russell Brand to interview Starr for special radio show

Russell Brand is to interview former The Beatles legend Ringo Starr for a special live radio show.

The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star will ask the drummer a number of questions for the Town Hall With Ringo Starr show, to be aired live from Los Angeles on 30 January (12) for Sirius XM.

Brand, who is a "massive fan" of the veteran musician, says, "Now we can unravel the enigma of Ringo."

The show, on which Starr will perform a number of songs, airs a day before he releases his 17th studio album, Ringo 2012.

Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay and Tom Petty have all previously had their own 'Town Hall' specials.
