Jeff ‘Skunk’ Baxter Unveils Ringo Starr’s Psychic Abilities, Supported by Evidence

During a recent appearance on Rock History Music, Jeff ‘Skunk’ Baxter revealed Ringo Starr’s psychic abilities, supported by evidence. Recalling one of his studio sessions with Starr, Baxter said:

“At the beginning of the session, he [Starr] said, ‘You know, Skunk, I’ve got a feeling that we’re going to get interrupted, and you’re probably going to get a call from the Pentagon.’ And I said, ‘Well, okay. I mean, all right,’ but so away we go. Half an hour into the session, my pager goes off, and literally 30 seconds later, two guys in black suits walk into the studio and say, ‘We gotta go.'”

Starr’s Reaction to the Studio Interruption

He continued, reflecting on the Beatles drummer’s reaction: “Ringo was laughing. He said, ‘It’s okay, it’s okay. Do what you gotta do. We’ll finish it at another time.’ I don’t know how he knew. I mean, he knew that I had another career, but I just thought that was… First of all, it was pressing it. It was almost like being able to be a fortune teller, look into the future, but he saw it not as a problem but just saw it as a part of the deal. ‘Okay, yeah, guys, black suits, black SUVs. Okay, great. We’ll be back there after tomorrow to finish it.’”

Baxter’s Perspective on Industry Competition

The guitarist played a role in Ringo’s tenth and eleventh studio albums, ‘Time Takes Time’ and ‘Vertical Man,’ both released in the 1990s. With a prolific career as a session musician, Baxter has often been compared to other artists, including the well-known session musician Steve Lukather. Addressing the competition between him and Lukather in a 2022 conversation with Mitch Lafon, Baxter shared:

“Well, there is always competition in the sense that a thousand people are trying to get that one spot, which I think is good. It weeds out the chaff and creates a situation where only the best get the job, frankly.” He went on to discuss the dynamics of competition among different session musicians:

“As far as competition between players, myself, Tim May, Luke, Jay Graydon, and Mitch Holder, we all did the sessions. Not really. There is always the thing at the back of your mind that you always want to be 110%. But no, as a matter of fact, it was a community. It was a close-knit and a tribe of studio loonies.”

The guitarist embarked on a tour in the Fall of 2023 with his exceptional band, promoting tracks from his 2022 debut solo album, ‘Speed Of Heat.’ The tour concluded in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, on November 19. You can watch the complete interview below.
