Paul McCartney's Son

Career Support from Ringo Starr

Ringo Starr hit the legendary Viper Room on the Sunset Strip last night to show his support for an up-and-coming British singer ... a singer who happens to be Paul McCartney's only son.

Turns out, 34-year-old James McCartney is already building one hell of a fan base ... 'cause Eagles rocker Joe Walsh also checked out the performance.

Right before the show, we asked James about his favorite Beatles album ... and his answer was pretty surprising, considering it was a record that his dad has said he was unhappy with at the time of its release.

That guy is only 34? He looks like Paul wearing old man makeup. He already has the receding hairline and old man comb over. This young man looks like a mess

His father has been at most of his gigs. His father has his own career and cannot be in every place that his son is. I think that Paul co-produced both of James' EP CD's is real great support. James' music is very good. He's a great lyricist, and is an amazing musician on many instruments, like his dad.

Is the Viper Room still owned by Johnny Depp? I was there the last time when River Phoenix died outside on the pavement in front of everyone's eyes in 94 or 95! That was the most horrifying moment i will never forget!!!!

Actually he's not a Jr. He's James Louis, not James Paul. His middle name was for Linda's late mother, Louise.

If I were him, I wouldn't bother trying to be my own person, I'd just live off dad's name and money.

RINGO IS ONE RUDE SOB. A FEW YEARS BACK HE ANNOUNCED THAT HE WILL NOT BE SIGNING ANYMORE AUTOGRAPHS. I SAW HIM ON THE STREETS IN SANTA BARBRA LAST YEAR IN A VERY OUT OF THE WAY PLACE. NO ONE WAS BOTHERING HIM. i SAID HELLO TO HIM AND HE FLATLY REFUSED TO SPEAK A SINGLE WORD, NOT EVEN HELLO.

"Boy, you're gonna carry that weight, carry that weight, a long time." The BEATLES are larger than life itself. Here goes, good job on this one TMZ. They happen to be the biggest band ever, even after 40 years. What talent do the kardashians have besides pissing people off that see right through their talentless facade.

Joe Walsh is Ringo's brother-in-law. They are married to sisters.
