The four colors in Ringo’s re-tweet above, you’ll notice, match the colors of the band members’ Sgt. Pepper’s military uniforms.

Fellow drummer and former member of Paul Revere & the Raiders, Keith Allison, got a chance to listen to the new album with Ringo and had some things to say about the experience on Facebook.

“I thought, this is a historically great moment. Sitting here with my friend, listening to Sgt. Pepper, that he’s on as a Beatle, and that he hasn’t listen to track by track, since it came out.”
