There was talk after the Beatles broke up that there’d be a new band called The Ladders with John, George, Ringo, and you, plus Harry Nilsson. How close was that to becoming a reality?
That was just a joke, I think. It’s Ringo’s fault. He was asked, “Are you putting the band back together?” and as a joke, he said, “There’s a band called The Ladders and Klaus will play bass.” That was a completely invented idea. Nobody ever told me and I don’t think it was in anybody’s head to do a band like that.
