Ringo Starr On His First Ludwig Drum Kit
Ringo Starr is synonymous with the drum brand Ludwig, and hearing him recount his first Ludwig is equal parts heartwarming and funny.
Starr told the story to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the video below, and talks about how as a young kid from Liverpool, he loved anything American. Big credit to then manager Brian Epstein for being willing to buy the kit for Starr, too.
And the rest, as they say, is history!
