Ed Mazza is overnight editor at The Huffington Post, and he gets to pick the “tags” for the entertainment stories he posts.

On Tuesday, he chose “aging gracefully” for a story on Ringo Starr getting together again with ex-Fab Four mate Paul McCartney.

Let it be, indeed.

Drummer Ringo is 76 and “the cute one” Paul is 74. And as HuffPo recounts: “The two former Beatles reunited for a recording session, with Starr posting a photograph on Twitter Sunday of the moment the two surviving members of the hugely influential group had come together.”

HuffPo said Starr’s upcoming album is “shaping up to be another ‘All-Starr’ effort. Along with [Joe] Walsh and McCartney, other recent tweets from Starr featured Timothy B. Schmit (also of the Eagles), Benmont Tench (of the Heartbreakers), Peter Frampton, Richard Page, Amy Keys and Nathan East joining him in the studio.”

It’s been a long and winding road, but the surviving mop tops can still put on a show.
