The following is a condensed and edited interview with musician and onetime Beatles percussionist, Ringo Starr.Q: Why did the Beatles decide to finally make their music available on streaming services?Do you stream or listen to vinyl and CDs?Though the Beatles are streaming now and have had a billion streams, I haven't actually done it myself.Q: What do you make of the disputes between artists and the streaming services, with artists claiming they aren't getting paid enough?The Beatles are doing fine, and we have the power where we can make a deal upfront.It's easier to become a celebrity on a TV show as a band for four months than work solidly.Q: Are the challenges for emerging artists the biggest change from when the Beatles began?I did a Ringo tour once and had a local band at every gig open for us just to give them exposure.
