The Beatles legend left Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp impressed when he visited their LA studio, along with his drummer Abe Laboriel Jr., to record a version of 'Come And Get It' - the track he wrote and produced for Badfinger.

Joe who has never worked with Paul before said to Rolling Stone magazine: "He knew all the chords, the lyrics, everything.

"He didn't have any cheat sheets. It was like he'd been playing it his whole life. Me and Alice and Johnny were standing there and looking at each other and I tell you -- if there's any ego-lever in a room, it's Paul.

"It doesn't matter who you are or what you've done. If Paul's in the room, he's there. It was hard to focus on playing."

According to the star, Paul and Alice share lead vocals on the track - a tribute to Badfinger members Pete Ham and Tom Evans who have both committed suicide.

And Paul's not going to be the only guest-member on the group's record.

Joe continued: "The record is dedicated to all the friends we've lost to drugs and alcohol over the years and getting people to come in and cover the songs their friends wrote."

Though the band have only one gig at Brazil's Rock in Rio festival in September so far, Joe says a tour is planned and he can't wait to get on-stage with Johnny.

"Johnny's a great guitarist.

"The times I've spent with him, I've always been impressed. To go out and tour with him is going to be a lot of fun. Everybody's really charged about it."
