Another Beatles hits album under discussion - Starr

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - An album of more Fab Four hits is being considered by the surviving members of The Beatles following the worldwide success of their "1" compilation album, drummer Ringo Starr said Tuesday.

Starr told "Access Hollywood" in an interview that he, Paul McCartney and George Harrison expect to discuss a "2" album later this year.

"There's a couple of projects in the works. Nothing will be out until next year and we're all going to meet up again in October and finalize what it will be. I mean, everybody wants the number twos," Starr told the syndicated TV show.

The "1" album of 27 old Beatles hits has topped the music charts in more than 34 countries since its release last December. Some 7.5 million copies have been sold in the United States alone.

McCartney earlier this year described the album as "a big healing, a big Band-Aid", saying it brought back great memories of the warm friendship between The Beatles before their acrimonious split in 1970.

Starr also commented on doom-laden media reports about Harrison's health, which have been denied by Harrison himself. Harrison, 58, underwent surgery for lung cancer earlier this year and has also recently completed radiation therapy reportedly for a brain tumor.

"I did see George three weeks ago and he was fine. If it had been bad, he would have told me. And all these years we've been around, you have to watch what's in the press," Starr said.

Harrison issued a statement in London on Monday saying that he was "active and feeling very well", adding that he was "disappointed and disgusted" at media reports suggesting he is at death's door.
